Meaningful & Popular Hanok Café in Korea, Onion

Café Onion is the popular Korean café that revives abandoned or almost-dying spaces after being used for decades. A metal factory used as an old warehouse, a post office that nobody comes anymore, and even a dilapidated Hanok built 100 years ago.

There are 4 branches in Seoul :

(1) Onion Sungsoo
(2) Onion Mia
(3) Onion Anguk
(4) Onion Gwangjang Market

UoH visited Onion Anguk, the most well-known branch among 4 branches. Onion Anguk renovated the old traditional Hanok on the outskirts of Bukchon Village. It used to be the Agency for Thieves Arresting during the Joseon Dynasty, then transformed to a Korean restaurant afterwards.

After tearing the whole architecture down, it now is covered with the glass tube and trimmed. You can see the traditional type of rubber shoes called Gomusin and more symbolic items of Korea.
