Through Feb. 28: The spirit of Baccarat shines brightly at Four Seasons Hotel Seoul this festive season, where the iconic luxury of the renowned French crystal house sets the glittering scene for the hotel’s glamorous “Time to Celebrate” — complete with incredible photo opportunities.  

Known as ‘King's Crystal’ — thanks to the company's first royal commission from King Louis XVIII in 1823 — Baccarat has been hand-crafting fine crystal products for dignitaries for over 250 years. Now, for the first time, guests to the contemporary Four Seasons Hotel in Gwanghwamun, Jongno District, central Seoul, can savor the fruits and flair of a classic collaboration between two iconic luxury brands for the ultimate in festive style.  
Throughout December and into the New Year, a dazzling arrival awaits guests on the Hotel’s first floor where stunning Baccarat crystal showpieces meet with the exuberant festive floristry of world-renowned floral artist, Nicolai Bergmann. Baccarat also dazzles in an exclusive festive Room Package with a Baccarat Tumbler Gift as well as a unique jewel-inspired Christmas cake featuring red octagon crystals and four festive cocktails served in luxurious Baccarat glasses.  

From Dec. 1 to Jan. 1, 2023, hotel guests can savor a gourmet journey inspired by the Baccarat brand. Sophisticated speakeasy, Charles H. — voted Korea’s number one bar — showcases four Instagramable cocktails, each served in a unique Baccarat glass which is priced from 250,000 won to 400,000 won.  

Cherry Manhattan — served in a Harcourt 1841 coupe glass — combines warming whiskey with sweet cherries and festive spices for a classy winter tipple, while Crystal 75 merges citrus flavors with a gin and champagne base in an elegant Mille Nuits Flutissimo glass.  

Chestnut Eggnog, a quirky take on the festive favorite, artfully blends chestnuts and custard cream in a Harcourt 1841 glass, while Hibiscus Highball is a berry-scented marvel in a Harmonie highball glass that harmoniously unites sweet rum, sour hibiscus and soda.  

The special edition cocktails are priced from 32,000 won to 33,000 won each.  

Looking to take home a slice of Baccarat magic? Confections by Four Seasons — the Hotel’s creative first-floor bakery — presents Christmas Jewel: a limited-edition cake (just 1,000 available) representing Baccarat’s signature red octagon jewelry. Gingerbread mousse spiced with cloves meets sweet vanilla crème Brulee and refreshing orange compote in each flavourful and texture-rich mouthful. Each Christmas Jewel cake (76,000 won), comes in Four Seasons Hotel Seoul and Baccarat branded box and bag: the perfect festive table centerpiece or gift for someone special. The cake can be served at Maru — the Hotel’s lobby lounge.  
Every guest to the hotel from Nov. 25 can enjoy beautiful festive decorations as part of the collaboration. Combining unique Baccarat items from classic chandeliers to glistening tree ornaments, rarely seen in Korea — with Nicolai Bergman's avant-garde flower arrangements, the elaborate decorations are set to become one of the city’s most sought-after festive photo backdrops.  

In addition, “Festive Magic Moments,” a limited-edition room package that includes a set of two beautiful Baccarat Beluga Tumbler Glasses worth 420,000 won, is also available until the end of December.
