Established in 1993, Seokparang [석파랑/石坡廊] is a Korean table d’hote restaurant located in Seoul’s neighborhood Hongji [Hongji-dong/홍지동] —administered by the neighborhood Buam [Buam-dong/부암동]— in the Jongno District [Jongno-gu/종로구].

This Korean restaurant consists of two meaningful buildings: ‘Bonchae [본채]’, which was where the birthplace of Empress Sunjeong was moved to from Okin-dong; and ‘Byeolchae [별채]’, part of the villa ‘Seokpajeong’ (석파정/石坡亭) owned by 19th century Regent of Joseon Heungseon Daewongun — of which ‘Seokpa’ was his penname. It is designated as Seoul Tangible Cultural Heritage No. 23. Originally collected in the same space by traditional calligrapher Sohn Jae-hyung (1903-1981), the buildings were eventually bought over from their descendants by Seokparang’s owner Kim Joo-won in 1989.

Stone Hill [스톤힐], which has the tagline ‘Italian dining with a view’, is an affiliated Italian restaurant that has been in operation since before or around 2014.

In 2019, the Seokparang Art Hall was established in this complex.
