• Sip sunset drinks at a bar with a view

After an afternoon in central Seoul, kick off your evening with sunset drinks at The Top Hat, a cocktail bar with a lot of ground rules: no sandals, no shorts, no photos of the menu, no instagrams of your perfectly-prepared highball. We’re willing to obey these edicts for top-notch service and an extensive drink list (over 100 kinds of whisky and 40 kinds of champagne, for starters). Plus the rooftop offers killer views of Seoul’s latest starchitect creation — Dongdaemun Design Plaza by Zaha Hadid. It’s a glowing wonder at night, though those coveted spots are reserved for VIP bottle service only.

Directly opposite Dongdaemon History and Culture Park, you can’t miss the striking origami-like folds of Seoul’s Fin Tower. Head directly up to the 12th floor for impressive views out across the city.

THE TOP HAT: Fin Tower 12th floor, 280-2, Eulji-ro, Jung-gu; 82-(0)10-9831-2131;
