Neighborhoods in Seoul all have a 'Meokjakolmok', which literally means food alley. In these alleys you'll find three-five storeys of neonlit bars and restaurants. Some neighborhoods with a large concentration of universities will have several streets lined up with restaurants, bars and lounges. And other areas such as Itaewon and Gangnam have up to one mile of bars and lounges on both sides of the street. It might be hard to choose, but on the other hand, you're never short of places to go out in Seoul, that's for sure!
