The Top Themed Cafes in Seoul: AirCafe in Hapjeong (비행기카페)
Cafes are all the rage in Seoul—just a few days ago, the Chosun Ilbo reported that Koreans now consumes more coffee per week than staple foods like kimchi or rice. With so many cafes to choose from, oftentimes you don’t even know where to go. While most of them are plain and typical with your standard interior layout, perhaps with a few artsy paintings scattered on the walls, sometimes you might want to try something different. Fortunately, themed cafes in Seoul, where you can get a cup of coffee or a bite to eat in a more imaginative setting, are also quite popular. The AirCafe, or 비행기카페, is one such cafe known for its uniqueness.
The AirCafe provides you with the feeling of traveling and indulging in wanderlust at your convenience. The main theme of the cafe is an “airplane” thus the layout resembles the interior of one and will for sure bring up plenty of memories. It’s definitely not something you would experience in most cafes. Just as you would if you were to hop on a flight, you enjoy your coffee and beverages in economy or business class seats.
This cafe offers a myriad of beverages from coffee to home-made refreshments and daily specials. Not only that, the cafe also offers an interesting food menu. Food is served in the form of an in-flight meal. Another notable feature of the cafe is the abundance of travel guides and books. Visitors of this cafe are welcome to read informative travel guides for many different countries and continents, including Korea, Japan, America, and Europe. They are definitely welcome resources for travelers who wish to plan their trips or for those that want to experience something new.
Even if you don’t have time for a trip away from home, a visit here will bring out nostalgic moments, spark ideas for your next trip, or provide some great conversation starters on a date.
