Pink Pool Cafe at Stylenanda’s store in Hongdae is one of the two cafes Stylenanda stores have in Seoul, South Korea. One is called the Pink Hotel (in Myeongdeong) and this one the Pink Pool. I decided to start with the most important information first because let’s face it – you’ve seen the photos from the Pink Pool Cafe and you wouldn’t want to end up in the wrong location… like many others.
Where is The Pink Pool Cafe located?
Pink Pool Cafe is located a 5-minute walk from Hongik University Station and is on the top floor of the Stylenanda store on 23 Wausan-ro 29da-gil street (Google map location here). I know, at first, you think you’re just entering into a cafe – but you actually need to take the escalators/elevator all the way up before you get hit by the bubble pink interior.
Best time to visit The Pink Pool Cafe
Best time to visit is weekdays at its opening time at 11 am. Hongdae is a University part of Seoul, so expect the students to come in for a coffee and cake around lunchtime. In the afternoon everything generally gets quite packed, since Koreans tend to start their days quite late and love socializing. Weekends are generally busier everywhere, so be prepared for a full-house if you decide to go then!
Needless to say – this cafe is super Instagrammable and even if you come when there’s a bit of a crowd, you can get lucky and get corner chairs where no one will get in the way of that perfect Insta-shot. Don’t forget to enjoy their desserts though – we tried two different ones and they were very tasty!
The Pink Pool Cafe at Stylenanda in Hongdae is a perfect location for a cool-cafe visit in Seoul. The area is famous for fashion, Kpop, urban arts and indie music culture, clubs and entertainments. You will find something to do here day and night and both equally exciting.
