This place is good, prettty much better than any other club in Korea.
Volume brings in many of the world's higher ranked DJs, and the Friday/Saturday entrance fee reflects this. Entrance is usually 20,000 won before 11pm, with a free drink. After 11pm, price is 30,000 won with a free drink.
DJ spins in the center of a large LED lightbank displying visuals. Interior is multi tiered, with the second floor reserved for VIPs.
Mixed drinks are not cheap, over 10,000. Heinekens are only 5,000 each.
Atmosphere inside was great! Everybody out for a good time, and friendly...
The entrance fee discourages both the military guys and Koreans that like to get drunk and cause a rukus from going.
Dress Code: They have a sign ay the entrance, saying "Dress code: Club Trendy".
A bit more upscale than the typical gungy Itaewan or Hongdae club, but I still got in wearing jeans and a Tshirt. Very similar to Apgujeong clubs. Dress to impress.
It's way cheaper to drink at hotel room than going to hofs and night clubs and bars. If your sort of a cheap skate then this is way to go. You can Buy beers at 7-11 stores for 1000 won for a 600 ml bottle and 2500 won for a 1.5 liter bottle plus snacks for 500 to 2000 won and if your room has a kitchen then you can cook frozen foods which can be bought for as low as 1000 to 4000 won hence you save a lot and still get drunk and happy while at it and still you save about 70% when going to bars! try it!
Dress Code: none! this is your hotel room, you can be naked for god sakes!
You Can Order Assorted Korean Style Barbecues which are Both Sweet and Spicy. Prices range from 800 to 2500 won (depends if its beef, chicken, fish, pork, etc.) and Barbecue stands are available everywhere and even in the Markets like Namdaemun since it is way cheaper to buy these things as bar chow too!
Dress Code: none!
Hang out in the park in Hongdae long enough and you'll get to meet the Makoli man! He's such a character it's worth it. Only a buck a bottle- give the guy a break! But careful drinking that stuff... Plus something interesting usually happens in the park- from live music to dj's to improve to art or korean punks up to nogood. (haha)
I used to go alot, but no more. Music got too trancy.. people got too snobby. But if you're in town for the weekend- it's a sure thing to be packed and a good time. There is a Hiphop club upstairs which is equally huge and also good.
Dress Code: They don't care about girls... dunno for guys.
Itaewon is a place where quite a reasonable number of South Koreans speak English because of the American presence there.
This is because ~ I have never see American Military Police (8 of them) going round each bar/shopping outlet in full military gear Exerting/Showing their presence and keeping the "Peace" in another sovereign country like South Korea
Apart from this there are loads of shops selling wares which can easilt obtained in Dongdaemun. Comparitively more expensive then other places but the has the ADVANTAGE of nightlife which unrivalled in other spots.
I did not spend a lot of time here but some people enjoyed it.
Dress Code: Usual wear.
Want salsa, but too new to adventure?
This is for you. They have free lessons almost everyday, and once you learn the basic steps, half is already done.
ok ok. I am a bit exaggerating. but it's true that they have free lessons everyday, I am very new though, and also I don't think I was talented about dancing, but was a great fun to be there. There are also many warm-hearted people, who'd be willing to dance with you even htough you can only do basic things.. =)
Dress Code: whatever suits you the best. you can also bring your clothes there and get changed int he club. =)
In front of the University of Hong-eek, there are a lot of bars and clubs. Usually the street is packed with people who seek for good fun for the night on the weekends..
The last friday of everymonth is called club day. On the day, if you pay about 15 US$ you will get a white band. With the white band around your arm, you can enter around 10 clubs for free, and have free beer, coke etc as much as you want. ( unless you order something real posh.. ) Once you get there, you can get all those available clubs' info pretty handy.
Well... However, since almost every club's jammed with people, you gotta keep special eye on your belongings, and also be careful of drunk-violent people, too. I wouldn't recommend going there all by yourself.
you can get there by subway, line2, come out from the gate 6, it's about 10 min walk away.
Dress Code: Whatever suits you is alright
If you go out drinking with Koreans, prepare to consume a lot of soju. Soju is that national drink, and it comes in small bottles of clear liquid. It is not as strong as vodka or gao liang, with an alcohol level of about 25%, but if you drink it in the copious amounts that some Koreans do, you'll be buzzing nonetheless.
Drinking with Koreans comes with its own set of customs, the most important of which is that you never pour your own glass. If your neighbor's glass is empty, he is expecting you to fill it (but would never ask). Once you top him off, he'll return the favor.
If you are being required to drink more than you can hold, it is possible to sneak water into your soju glass and get away with a few shots of H2O if no one is looking. But if you get caught, be prepared to drink enough soju to more than make up for what you skipped.
Woodstock is a tiny, dingy place. The music is loud and the place is usually packed. The music is by request and you can hear anything from The Doors to Britney in the same night. This is a great place to let go and dance and drink pitchers of beer.
