Access to sumptuous speakeasy Le Chamber depends on pulling the correct book from the bookshelf entrance: a much-Instagrammed touch dreamed up by world-champion bartender-owners Eom Do-hwan and Lim Jae-jin. With a 50-guest capacity, the space features high ceilings, leather seating, glittering chandeliers and live piano music. Menus, presented in hardcover books, boast some 200 whiskies, house-made ingredients, including ginger beer, and fermented pours. With a bottle-storage facility for VIPs, don’t be surprised if you spot a K-pop star sipping a Gatsby-style cocktail, complete with a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio clipped to the glass.
