How to Spend a Day at Lotte World Mall in Jamsil, Seoul

Lotte World Tower is, well, a super tall tower in Jamsil, Seoul. It has office units and residential apartments, hotel, etc. but it also has a shopping mall and department stores. I frequent Lotte World Mall as I live not too far from there. If you are going to visit Lotte World mall, consider visiting these places.

You can look up the exact locations of these establishments here.

Where to eat

Most of the restaurants are on 5th and 6th floor. You can just go up there and choose whichever one intrigues you! But these are the places I like to eat at.


Ganga is an Indian restaurant on 6th floor. Every one of their vegetable curry is delicious, and they serve good beverages.

Bills is on the first floor unlike other restaurants. The best way I can describe Bills is Sex and the City brunch, but they serve all day. I really like the food. It’s popular so the waiting is looong, but it is well worth the wait. I especially recommend it if you want that Instagram aesthetic brunch.

Where to have tea

AID Cafe

AID is a beautiful cafe on the 5th floor with a cute little store on the side.

Van Gogh Cafe

Van Gogh Cafe is officially endorsed by the Van Gogh museum and has art & decoration curated by them. They have specialty Van Gogh cocktails (both with and without alcohol) which I love.

Where to shop

Lotte World Mall has many mainstream stores like Zara, H&M, and Hollister. But you already know about them. So I’ll be writing about stores that are more unique.

salt & chocolate

If you are looking for unique shoes, look no more. They have wide variety of shoes for men and women.


KAIF is a lifestyle store that sells clothes, room decor, and much more. If you like minimalist aesthetic, you will like KAIF.


Are you a K-pop fan? Then you must visit KON on 5th store. They sell everything related to K-pop.

Other things to enjoy

Lotte Cinema

Typical movie theater, hing special. But hey, might as well catch a movie while you’re there! It’s on 6th and 7th floor.

Lotte  Museum of Art

You can get cultured on some fine arts while you’re at a mall! How about that. They had Alex Katz exhibition recently that I enjoyed!

Establishments nearby

Lotte World

Who would have thought there would be an amusement park in the middle of a metropolitan area? It’s not as big as Everland but it’s closer and convenient. If you want to have some thrill while you’re here, consider an adventure in the OG Lotte World!
