Plant Pavilion PH
Recently I found a cafe is very special in Seoul, Korea that I really want to visit there. This cafe is in Suseo-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul which is a little far away from the place where I lived in Seoul. To be honest, i was keep thinking did I have to go there to see since I know ”Plant Pavilion PH cafe” is a little bit far. But when I arrived at the cafe I knew I didn’t make a wrong choice immediately. Once you step into the cafe, you can find out the room is very spacious and has lots of plants which you can spend your entirely afternoon with your friend in there. Oh! Also there have a small art museum in three floor.
In the center of Gangnam, you can see some skyscrapers and department store covered the sky; however, when I passed by this glass house that was entered my sight straightly and then I just found out this one is the one that I searching for.
If you are a person who love glass house, I believe you will act like me.
The name is unique also the exterior and interior are unusual have strength which is different than other. In particular, the door handle is made of stone! First time I came here, stand in front of the glass and thinking about how should I open the door and where is the door? So let me tell you the door is in the right way and push the silver alumium door into it! Don’t stand in front of the glass as what I did. lol.
When you come into the Plant Pavilion PH cafe, you have to buy the ticket (10,000 won per adult) including a drink which you can choose one of the drinks such as Espresso, American coffee, coffee latte, Louis Boss, etc.
In the Plant Pavilion PH cafe, the main decorate is “plants” and “stones”. They seem to make potted plants and stones untidy, but when we see the overall atmosphere, they are very harmonious. You probably will feel this place just like a mini garden in the center of Seoul.
In the first floor, there don’t have too much set but have lots of plants also they have a small garden in the outside.
I think the second floor is the best choice of your set. Of course, it also very spacious just like first floor but the set is more than the first floor, which you have choose where you want to set. There is a lot of sunshine and a cool place inside. I personally like it because the second floor is more quite and airy than the first floor.
In the second floor, you also can see the 1st floor on different angle that you can have other thoughts
The Plant Pavilion PH cafe has three floors that there is a small exhibition on the third floor. The exhibition always change to different subject.
Now, The exhibition is the work of Kwon Do Yeon. Everytime I stare at those work that I feel so peace although it’s a colorless and simple, which just let me connect to think about the plants on the 1st floor.
On the side of the exhibition hall, you can see the top of the mountain through the glass. But I think it’s so ugly as you can see in the photo cause no one manage it. (Unless someone clean it.)
Honestly I am impressed by this cafe, which I want to give it a good grade, the atmosphere is too great and the staffs are also friendly, I can’t say anything about it. I guess if I lived in Seoul, I probably will come here to spend my leisure time frequently.
However, the disadvantage is that various beverages are not diversified and the taste of the coffee is insufficient. Anyway, If I would come to Seoul again, I will come here.
