[Update: April 5, 2010] Unfortunately, I just confirmed last weekend that Serein is now closed indefinitely. We will miss all those mojito selection as well as that overly joyous yellow cat. We have yet to figure out what that cat exactly is.
Question: How does one test for another’s familiarity of Garosu-gil, Sinsa?
Serein is a cozy bar specializing in mojitos, located off the main street of Garosu-gil, Sinsa. First floor is a bar and second floor a restaurant. Retro-styled light bulbs with clearly visible filament emanating warm light extends all the way down to just above your head from the ceiling, with yellow visual warmth bouncing off from the walls tiled with white bricks in differently-patterned spacing. Hints of artsiness is quite evident, with colorful cushions and chairs, in addition to signs of a yellow cat character that I recognized from other places… (Does anyone know what this character is about??? I think I saw this at Mix Lounge at Garosu-gil as well as in other venues @ Samcheong-dong as well).
