korean food / seoul / 5 live jazz bars steeped in jazz melodies – 2625

From the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, “jazz” developed as pop music by mixing elements of classical and marching music with black American music. Jazz, which is characterized by improvisational performance, is attractive because even the same music can create a different atmosphere from performance to performance. Jazz music filled with the performer's personality and sense of swing energizes busy modern people. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience a special atmosphere, go to a live jazz bar where you can feel jazz for yourself. Live jazz bars all over Seoul instantly fill the gray and desolate city of Seoul with a romantic atmosphere. Here are 5 of the best live jazz bars where you can enjoy jazz melodies along with delicious food.

1. 'Grand Amour' in Hannam-dong, reminiscent of European jazz bars

“Grand Amour” exudes a French sensibility with white tablecloths, stands placed at each seat, and red chairs. Once at lunch and once at dinner, a red curtain opens and a jazz performance begins. If you use it during the performance, a separate performance fee of 5,000 won will be added. “Course Amour,” where you can enjoy Chef Lee Hyung Joon's 4-course French meal at dinner time, is the most popular.
