Seongsu-dong is officially the Brooklyn, nay Mission of the east. This installation art gallery and cafe is housed in a beautiful red brick warehouse which was once a bustling factory. Now full of millennials, it’s surrounded by mechanics, hand made shoes stores and other hipster cafes. Imagine if Gentle Monster ran a cafe!
Proving it has the staying power of more than the naysayers’ 15 minutes, Café Onion is the latest tenant in this 1970s industrial building that has seen a spate of businesses that include a repair shop and a metal factory.
