“Seoul National University Entrance, Starbucks Sharosugil Branch”

Sharosugil, considered emblematic of Seoul National University Entrance, begins with Starbucks. When you walk along the street next to Starbucks, you can enjoy Sharosugil. Thus, Starbucks feels like the guardian of the entrance to Sharosugil, giving it a special significance.

“A Lively Atmosphere”

Perhaps due to its location in front of a university, this place exudes more liveliness compared to others. There’s a saying that about 10% of the people roaming around Seoul National University Entrance are students of Seoul National University, which might contribute to this energetic ambiance.

Unlike the atmosphere in the other two nearby Starbucks locations, where you might find people quietly engaged in reading or working on their laptops (making it almost library-like), here you’ll see many people engaged in conversation.

“Spacious Interior, Avoiding Any Sense of Confinement”

Starbucks Sharosugil, located in front of Seoul National University Entrance on Sharosugil, boasts a remarkably high ceiling. The large windows also create an open atmosphere, ensuring you don’t feel confined even when indoors.

However, it is relatively small in size compared to the other two Starbucks locations near Seoul National University Entrance. Still, it’s a great place to enjoy a cup of tea and engage in conversation comfortably.
