See & Do Restaurants


The Korean Mak House, Mr. Ahn's Craft Makgeolli is a craft brewery and gastropub located on Gyeongnidan Road. Visitors can sample delicious Korean cuisine and a wide range of traditional Korean liquors such as varieties of  takju (unrefined rice wine, makgeolli is a popular variety of takju), varieties of cheongju (refined rice wine) and soju. Mr. Ahn's was the first business in Korea to make and sell makgeolli that contained no artificial ingredients. 

Befitting of an establishment that pairs the traditional and the modern, the interior design is quirky and eclectic. The culinary menu offers Korean fare and includes everything from meals to anju (snacks that are paired with alcohol). Recently, a second location was established nearby; it is called 21st Century Seoul.
