Chan Restaurant is the only Korean gastropub in Seattle. Our intimate setting is located within the historic Pike Place Market complex and is reminiscent of the places we love in Seoul, Korea.
Chan offers traditional Korean dishes using Western ingredients and modern cooking techniques. Korean-born Chef Heong Soon Park and his team bring diners an outstanding array of powerful flavors which blend spicy, salty, sour, sweet and umami on the plate.
Our focus is on the creating an immersive Korean culinary experience for our diners. Our full cocktail bar features an array of craft cocktails developed specifically to complement our menu. In addition, we make our own soju and shrubs in-house and serve makgeolli as well as a selection of local and Korean beers.
