Best Nightlife in Hongdae
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Seoul team
Finding nightlife in Seoul is not a difficult task. Everywhere you go, you will see Koreans, expats, friends, couples, students and business people partying it up. Whether you like clubs, lounges or bars or perhaps pool parties? Seoul by night is...
Surprisingly unique...some say crazy, but in a good way. This is probably the first impression most people get when they experience Seoul by night. It is hard to overstate how much nighlife this city acommodates. The national past time is drinking and Seoulites simply love to go out and have fun. Koreans work hard and play hard, so what better way to spend their free time, than meeting friends over a shared meal and a few (sometimes more) shots of Soju. Try the Korean way of pouring each other's alcohol and experience the typical first, second and third round of drinking - Karaoke included of course and finish the night off in style and go clubbing and rub shoulders with the rich and beautiful in one of the many trendy clubs in Cheongdam and Apgujeong, go bar-hopping and party with the expat crowd in Itaewon or see how Korean students and underground artists party it up Hongdae.
