Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a terrific place. Que lugar tan magnifico. Not only are the drinks and atmosphere incredible, the service is beyond any other place in Seoul. Of the 17 days we were in Seoul, we only repeated one location twice, and it was Alice. Egsy, the...Sr Bartender, is friendly, attentive, and incredibly fun. Went above and beyond on both visits to ensure we had an amazing nightMore

This is a whiskey bar that has a hidden entry. You go through a flower shop and at the end there's a door through which you enter the bar. Service is very good and bar tenders are entertaining. Apart from the whiskey, the bar staff...are excellent mixologists. I would recommend forgoing the menu and ordering a custom made drink. Tell them what you like and don't and they will make something up for you. They decorate the cocktails as much as their quirky decor. This is a place to go for chatting endlessly with your friends or partner.More

This will be the second time I have visited Alice and neither time did it disappoint! The basement type speakeasy location is very fun, the drinks (though perhaps too expensive) are excellent and the staff are always there to fill a water glass or refill...the snacks bowl. I visit Alice every time I am in Korea. The main Alice in Wonderland themed drinks are the beverages with the most WOW factor and have a whimsical theatrical presentation, to include cotton candy on the rims of glasses, rosemary sage smoke in a skull with a top hat and a martini in a wooden box. I would recommend Alice to anyone who is OK spending $25 on an extremely well crafted cocktail in a location with a very cool and original atmosphere. And sit at the bar, the bartenders are very friendly and will put on a show.More

This place we found by accident. We'd been in a couple of bars and were looking to head home, when I saw an intriguing sign. We kind of followed aimlessly down a flight of stairs and into what looked like a flower shop. When we...entered, we weren't sure if someone was going to sell us a bouquet or not, but she said "table for 2?" We agreed, and the next thing you know we're being led into a retro style speakeasy bar, complete with incredible decor and a really cool vibe. We moved to sit at the bar (best experience) once it was free, and we were entertained all evening by the bar staff, they were really great. We went through the list of cocktails (my favourites were the reflection and the old stone). All were good, and came with some theatricals. I am surprised we managed to find it, but would definitely go back again. Big shout out to "William" (Park jun bom?) you really helped us enjoy the evening! We'll be back!More

Quaint Alice in wonderland themed cocktail bar. Sounds like a bad idea but they pull it off well. Great cocktails and nice ambiance. A little hard to find but worth it.

As a fan of cocktails, ventured to visit with the help of Google! Was very glad that we made the trip... the drinks were well executed with the whimsical fanfare of “Alice in Wonderland” theme, the other original cocktails were absolutely yummy too. I loved...the bacon old fashioned, great pairing and it cuts through the whiskey. The laphroaig project was SUPERB too. Smokey and beautiful finish. The ambience and setting was gorgeous, well spaced and didn’t have a pretentious vibe at all. Service crew was attentive (refilling our snacks) and made great recommendations! I would also like to give a shout out to JS PARK who’s a bartender at this place... he was a superstar and noticed that we visited twice! Thank you for the amazing special rice wine shots! I would highly recommend anyone visiting to venture and explore Alice! Go find where the toilet is! Haha! :)More

We’d researched and heard a lot about this place. We love cocktail bars, but the atmosphere here was very stuffy, overly furnished and not particularly innovative. For the cover price, you get bloody Pringles! Pringles! We weren’t exactly down the rabbit hole! Despite all this,...they did send back a smokey cocktail to be replaced by a Martini, which was fairly average.More

Following on from getting engaged my partner and I made our way to Alice bar where the ambience, the servers and more importantly the cocktails were OUT OF THIS WORLD! Everything looked and tasted beautiful and the whole set up of Alice was so unique...and so special! Definitely a place to try! Definitely deserves its ranking in worlds best bars!! :D looking forward to coming back to Korea to come to Alice again!More

Very entertaining staff. I came here as a solo traveler and had a good time. Unique cocktails. I had one with IPA foam. Served with chocolate eggs. Wow! What an experience. A little pricey but well worth it. They even serve free snacks. Better cocktails...than in New York.More

Beautiful speakeasy bar, hideous entrance with a classy interior. However, beware that there is a covercharge of KRW10k per pax which includes a basket of snacks, a tiny glass of champagne and Fiji water. This was not informed until the bill arrived. Now it makes...sense why they brought so many goodies out. Oh, I only took a sip of the champagne, went to the toilet and it was gone without even asking. I had the Hippity Hoppity which was a major failure. The only thing that was good about this drink was the presentation. It was just utterly sour juice, filled with so much ice and barely any alcohol in it. For a KRW 25k drink, this is ridiculously overpriced. It was worth KRW 15k at most. I want a good drink, not a good presentation.... I did not even attempt to order a second drink - waste of money and time. You're basically paying for the ambience, service (which wasn’t particularly amazing either?), drink presentation and goodies. The quality of the cocktail is a total waste of time.More

This bar is probably one of my favourites globally now. Each cocktails has unique design or taste, or both. Vibe is really nice and bartenders have been really friendly and nice. See some of the photos of cocktails. They are unique!

I’ve been to many bars around the world and none have stood out quite as much as Alice. There are glitzy clubs, showy bars, top notch rooftop restaurants with amazing views. Alice is a little flower shop tucked into a basement by creates a unique...and memorable experience with its cocktails, ambience and service. The prices do match the attention to detail.More
