Just in case you haven't heard about Mangwon yet, it's one of the cool places in Seoul these days. You can find lots of cute cafes, stores and restaurants there. I wanted to visit there so bad because I have heard about Mangwon-dong a lot recently and saw many pictures taken there. I finally had a chance to meet my friend in Mangwon and we visited one of the coolest cafe called Social Club Seoul. There is a giant table in the middle of the cafe. That is one and only table in that room and everyone have to sit next to strangers. I guess that's why they named the cafe as "Social Club". However, no one actually talks to other people except their companies. I think that is very Korean thing because we don't really talk to strangers that well. I personally think it would been cooler if people talked to others or if they opened this concept cafe in other countries. So my friend and I was making a little joke like this is very Anti Social Club and I'm sure that you will feel the same way once you enter this place. But I still love the concept, this cafe is very pretty and I love their aesthetics. Also, Korean people take lots of pictures including selfies in cafes. This cafe is packed with people talking selfies and yes I was one of them. This place is extra photogenic! If you are looking for cool cafe and like taking photos, this is one that you should visit. I also had cold milk tea and it was very good. They served me a bottle of milk tea and and small size of cute cup! Note: There is a really long queue if you go on weekends, I recommend you to go on weekdays!
