Big Bang's Seungri is reportedly an owner of a high-class private bar.
The Fact reported on November 16 about 'Monkey Museum,' a bar in the Gangnam area. According to the report, the bar only opens on weekends and is 100% reservation only. Drinks that are sold at this bar are expensive ones like 'Dom Pérignon' and other drinks that range from $1,700 USD to $15,000 USD a bottle. The highest priced alcohol sold is a 12-Liter 'Armand de Brignac Brut Gold,' which sells for $80,000 a bottle.
One staff at the bar commented, "Seungri apparently studied various lounge bars and considered potential profits before opening up 'Monkey Museum.'"
It is reported that even with it operating only on Fridays and Saturdays, its weekly earning is over $100,000 USD. The insider also reported that Seungri had Chinese investments in order to open the bar.
A real estate expert estimates that building in which Seungri's bar operates costs anywhere from $100,000 to $200,000 for a deposit and a monthly rent of $15,000.
YG Entertainment responded to the report by stating, "We don't know what his private business is unless he wants to share with us."
