Rakwon Paradise Microbrewery | North Korea Travel Guide
This is one of Pyongyang’s excellent microbreweries and well worth a visit for a relaxing beer or two in between sights.
Not to be confused with any other of Pyongyang's top breweries, such as the Taedonggang Brewery.
It is located on the top floor of the Paradise Department Store.
To access the bar you need to enter a side entrance and take the stairs or lift to the third floor.
Apart from the department store, you will also find Kenji Fujimoto’s Takahashi Sushi Restaurant in the same building.
It’s also near the Changwang Health Complex, Air Koryo Ticket office, Pyongyang Ice Rink and Pyongyang Indoor Stadium where most tourists go to watch Mass Dancing.
It’s a small bar hidden away, you have to go through a side entrance, up some stairs or lift, pass through the main doors and then walk down a couple of corridors to get to it.
They only served one beer here which is very delicious, refreshing and cheap, brewed onsite with the brewery on the other side of the glass windows.
Apart from beer, they also make makkoli – a drink made from fermented rice and is Korea’s oldest drink.
They also serve various soft drinks and juices here for the non-drinkers and bar snacks such as ubiquitous peanuts and talpi (dried Pollack), a popular North Korean food.
Beer is just 50 cents per glass here.
