One of the best things about being a K-pop fan is that there's always something to look forward to: There are always songs to sing and dance to, variety shows to binge-watch, birthdays and milestones to celebrate, and cupsleeve events to host. And where better to celebrate your love for your idols than in K-pop-themed cafés that are inspired by them, too?

Here's a list of K-pop-inspired cafés that will feed your inner fangirl:

1. Café 408

Location: The Rock, Holy Spirit Drive, Quezon City

It's finally happening, Eris (EXO's fandom)! We're getting the first ever EXO-inspired café in the metro. Café 408 is a must-visit for all Filipino EXO-Ls. The coffee shop's interior hints at a minimalist industrial chic design with concrete floors and a restrained color palette of black, white, and gray. It also houses plants and EXO memorabilia. Instantly giving the atmosphere a cozy vibe, you'll feel like you're sitting next to Kyungsoo in "Universe" MV. On their drink menu are lattes, pastries, and Insta-worthy non-dairy alternatives available for our lactose-intolerant eris, too. Spoiler: Chanyeol's famous tteokbokki recipe is also going to be part of the menu! Pull up a seat and drink a cup of their signature coffee while vibing to EXO bops when they finally open their doors at the same time as EXO's 11th anniversary, April 8. Visit here for future updates.


2. Caratreats

Location: 2/F, Millenium Building across SM Dasmarinas, Sampaloc 1, Cavite

Take a step into Caratreats and you'll be transported to a pastel candyland. The SEVENTEEN-themed interior easily makes it a ~very nice~ spot to fangirl and chill. While you adore the signed albums and memorabilia, you can bond with fellow Carats (SEVENTEEN fans) over treats, pasta, and pepperoni pizza. Complete your Caratland experience by trying out their SEVENTEEN-inspired milk tea specials. Fun fact! The homey café is totally *approved* by one of the members, DK, during a fan call with the café owner herself! He even promised to stop by when he visits the country again. You never know, you might run into DK while sipping their refreshing Carat Pop drink.

3. Purple 7

Location: 37 Tomas Morato Ave., Quezon City

There are several BTS-themed cafés in the country and Purple 7 remains at the top. From the purple (borahae!) and pink pastel interiors, aesthetically pleasing neon signs, to the BTS merchandise adorning every corner, Purple 7 is a haven for ARMYs (BTS' fandom).  Every spot warrants an IG-worthy post or two making it the best place to dine in and meet with your fellow fans. Its tastefully designed interiors and large space are perfect to host for cupsleeve events, or just simply enjoy hanging out and casually talking about your biases with fellow ARMYs. You can dance along to BTS bops 'till ~zero o'clock~ and fill your stomach with their wide array of drinks, sweet and fluffy baked goods, and pasta for an affordable price!


4. Chingu Dachi Café+

Location: 2/F 3388 Magsaysay Blvd. Sta. Mesa, Manila

K-pop fans from every fandom are welcome to enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee at Chingu Dachi Café+. Eat your kilig feels and shop to your heart's content at this Korean café that doubles as a K-pop store. There's coffee, smoothies, and pasta to devour. And a *budol* corner of albums and photobooks which you can come home to! *winks* You might want to try Busan Sea Salt as you waltz along this aesthetic spot perfect for your multifandom heart.


5. Sincerely, Shawol

Location: L 14 B21 Carnation St. Phase 1-B Vista Verde South Exe Village, Mambog 3 Bacoor, Cavite

As fans, we are always reminded of our bias group whenever we encounter the fandom color, right? Then this is your sign to visit Sincerely, Shawol. As a fan of SHINee, you might want something with a tinge of blue and pearl aqua for the 'gram. From the pastries like cake pops to the feature wall that displays the legendary K-pop group's physical albums and portraits, this is a museum-like experience for every Shawol (SHINee fan) out there. It's a total eye candy that's perfect for brunch or afternoon tea! But if you're digging something savory, the café also serves a plethora of cuisines such as rice meals, classic Korean street food, and also many delicious desserts you can enjoy. All while listening to the constant stream of SM songs playing in the background!
