SM Entertainment is an agency who has various popular artistes signed under them, such as Girls Generation, Super Junior, SHINee, EXO, Red Velvet, and NCT! However, do you know that they also run a full-scale restaurant – SMT SEOUL; located in the prime location of Gangnam?
SMT SEOUL has 5 floors in total, each floor having its own different concept and design, with the first and second floor dedicated to casual, dining style (PLAYGROUND), third and fourth floor for a luxurious mansion atmosphere (PENTHOUSE), and a Vertical Garden on the top floor.
I was there during dinner time and the staff were very friendly! The restaurant serves Spanish tapas dishes, salads, Seoul style pinchos and assorted platters. The different dishes have their own different flavours and I certainly enjoyed the food there.
The food might be a little pricey in comparison, but the interior and ambience of the restaurant certainly made me feel comfortable and it is a great venue to enjoy a simple dinner with your friends. (You can also have a “mini-photoshoot” in the restaurant too!)
Address: 58 Apgujeong-ro 79-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea
Opening Hours: PLAYGROUND – 11am to 1am (Thu – Sat to 2am), PENTHOUSE (by reservations only) – 12pm to 11pm
