Han Korean Cocktail Bar

Having recently opened in the Wuhou District in the Southwest of Chengdu, Han is a Korean cocktail bar that specializes in exotic mixed drinks. Whereas in most bars in Chengdu you’ll feel at home with Qingdao, you’ll see Korean and Chinese bartenders mixing Long Island Iced Teas and Mojito’s all night to a bumping techno soundtrack in Han.

As you can see from photos of this venue, Han is a loft-style minimal bar that features an enormous collection of bottles on display behind the bar. Each night features multiple acrobatic performances by bartenders who toss and twirl bottles in the air while a DJ on the second level plays a song that each performance is choreographed to. You might even get to see bartenders dressed in full costume on weekends while they perform their elaborate routines.

Although the location and atmosphere in Han is slick, many say that it is compromised by the musical selection, which is generally very poppy and dance-y, despite the the fact that there is no dancefloor and generally no dancing at all. Black Eyed Peas and Gangnam Style (naturally) are at home inside Han.

Foreigners are often offered free drinks in Han, too.

Prices

Mixed drinks start around 35 yuan in Han and go up to 80 depending on ingredients, size, and complexity. However, Han’s mixed drinks are prepared by professional bartenders, unlike many other “cocktail bars” in Chengdu. If you’re looking for a cheap place to drink 20 yuan Lao Beer, it is not Han.

    This place is worth at least checking out for the cool atmosphere and good drinks. It’s hard to find skilled international-style bartenders in Chengdu, but they are at Han. This is an upscale joint, a good place to take a date.

    I think the details section here is actually for New Little Bar. Han’s address seems to be:

    44 Longhua Nanlu (ATT building), Chengdu
    成都龙华南路44号(ATT层)
