Personified as the private mansion of a 19th-century English dandy, Charles House is a members-only bar in the heart of Seoul. Conceived by local design firm M4, the 145-m2 club breaks it’s bold masculine look with quirky and humoristic details. Meticulous finishes and lighting stages the dark blue-grey space – clad in eclectic graphics, exaggerated trims and exposed concrete.

Guest enter through a Hall of Mirrors-like foyer – covered in empty frames. Further on, a mannequin joins a series of top hat pendant lampshades to welcome visitors into the main hall. A period chandelier pops out from the centre of the dark ceiling to illuminate every corner of the lounge. On one end, a cosy living room nestles next to regal windows – bringing-in moon light – while in the background, a wall to ceiling bookshelf holds classic editions.

Charles House’s focal point is an extruded bar. With recessed lighting, the white monolith appears to float. Guest quickly forget when and where they actually are.
