Hapjeong MECENATPOLIS, the New Shopper’s Delight
How to enjoy the MECENATPOLIS Mall
I need to refresh myself!
Today, let’s go to somewhere new. What about meeting at Hapjeong MECENATPOLIS?
Just walk for 5 minutes from Exit No. 9 of Hapjeong Station, then you can see the mall. I’ll see you there then.
What do you want to do?
There are so many things to look around. Let’s just take a walk inside the mall.
I’d like to really have some Krispy Donuts. Why don’t we have some donuts first?
Yesterday, because my shoes fell apart, I was worried about it. But I found out good handmade shoes by Mary Jane, it is such a good luck.
8ight seconds is having a sale now!
Shall we take a short rest?
We exhausted the energy for shopping; shall we take a short rest?
Let’s go to ‘snow spoon’ and have some gelato. And what about going to the Nail art shop?
The New Designed Complex Shopping Mall, MECENATPOLIS
It’s been just 3 years, since MECENATPOLIS mall in Hapjeong opened. It’s become one of attractive landmarks with Myeong-dong Street, Dongdaemun, and Gangnam area, etc. The variety of stores such as domestic & international fashion brand outlets, beauty shops household supply stores and restaurants are all gathered in a building. The interior of shopping mall is totally different from other shopping mall. It’s not a building of a square shape no more; they have a wave line shape inside. The building has an original solution in solving the main square to not being a closed and dark; you can see the view of the sky wherever you are. It’s the place where you can enjoy taking a walk and going shopping at the same time.
When I visited the MECENATPOLIS at first, I felt a delightful and a new sensation. The colorful umbrellas, lined on the sky, fixed my attention. From the second floor, I could see the view of a main square on the B1 floor. From the ground floor(B1), I could see the view of the sky as well. Both taking a rest with the sky and shopping were available together on such a sunny day.
From the domestic brand stores to international ones, total over 100 shops gathered. Also, there is a variety of restaurants such as Korean, Italian, Japanese, Indian, etc. You can have a meal whatever you want even the light meal.
If you stay in the Hapjeong or Hongdae area, you don’t have to go to other areas for shopping such as Myeong-dong, Dongdaemun, and Gangnam area. You can enjoy the shopping in the MECENATPOLIS as well, very close to your accommodations.
