[Seoul] The Seoul coffee shop game is as strong as it ever was, and with the constant emergence of new, instagram-worthy places to hang out, this scene is going nowhere fast.

The fabulously pretty-in-pink Stylenanda Pink Pool 스타일난다 핑크풀카페 is one of the hippest places to enjoy an iced latte right now.

Fashionistas and aspiring Instagram influencers headed to the Korean capital should mark this place high on their café-hopping bucket list.

Decorated in perfectly delicate pink shades, the Pink Pool Cafe is a slice of girly paradise. (While you are here, the other popular pink café is Zapangi 자판기, also known as the pink vending machine café.)

Stylenanda Pink Pool

Situated in both Seoul’s hip Hongdae and Myeongdong district, the premises have a dual function – as a cafe selling picture perfect sweet treats, and as a makeup and fashion store.

What better way to spend an afternoon?

Stylenanda is one of South Korea’s leading chic fashion brands and their style and branding is evident throughout every part of the decor.

Trendsetters and coffee lovers can enjoy a drink and a snack from the cafes extensive menu. The Pink Pool Café serves up a pretty menu of drinks from Shakes, Tea, Ade, to “Diet” drinks of Real Tomato Juice, Lemon Detox Water, Coconut Juice and Burdock Tea (6500 Won – 7000 Won, SGD7.90 – 8.50) for the health-conscious, considered slightly above the usual café pricing.

Hot chocolates, green tea lattes, and a diverse range of coffees are available to warm you up on those cold Seoul winter days.

Those heading to have something on their Instagram would order the Cotton Candy Ice Cream, Coffee or Slush (9000 Won, SGD10.90) which are eccentrically decorated huge puffs of cotton candy made for photo purposes.

If you are not sure what exactly you want to sample, the servers can make suggestions, or show examples of their wonderfully innovative menu on their ipad which is a nice touch.

The interior of the cafe is not huge, but there are so many different settings and the spot is so photogenic that you could nab enough photo captures here to fill your Instagram feed for the next six months.

Enjoy sitting indoors by the poolside with a cotton candy ball bigger than your head while tapping your feet to the latest K-pop tunes, or relax on one of the bright pink recliners on the sixth floor rooftop.

The interiors are minimal yet chic and stylish.

The pastel pink and blue tiles make you feel as though you are in a fabulously feminine swimming club and the swimming signs and lockers add fun touches to the atmosphere.
