Nightlife @ Itaewon
Summer 2018 I visited Seoul to get more about it nightlife. I decided to stay @ Itaewon because it is the most international community, so I've met many different people around the world. I partied there for 4 nights. There a lot of different places there and on weekends they are pretty packed.
B One Lounge Club
This club is my favorite. It is a sophisticated & progressive lounge club and it is pretty big. It has 5 dancing areas and around 3 bars. So even if there are many people there is always a place to dance or hang out at a bar. The crowd is pretty mixed there. It is possible to meet cool and young Koreans there too. Working hours are 10PM-5.30AM on FRI, SAT. On others day it works up to 4 AM. Enter is 20k KWN. Cocktails and drink cost about 12-14k KWN, it is a bit expensive, but worth it for such great lounge club.

This is my second favorite club at Itaewon. The interior is magnificent, there no actual fountain, but it has a cool style wall in the design of an old church. The entrance is free and drinks are cheaper than in other clubs. My favorite drinks there is IPA beer for 6k KWN. It works up to 5 am.

It is more a bar than a club, people go there to chat and drink, but the dancing area is also big. It features good and slow atmosphere and music. Don't mind the name it is open on every evening. If you are in more slowly way of partying go there.

This place is similar to B one, but smaller. There one big dance hall. Near it there is a smoking room. They don't allow people in shorts. Prices and music are similar to B one. The place was closed on Sunday. :(
This place is kind of weird. You would never guess what is going on there from the name. It is a place where people from ex-USSR are hang out, similar as the Chocolate club in Beijing. Music is Russian. It is located on a 3rd floor. On the weekend entry is 10k KWN. Beer bottle cost 10k KWN too. If you miss the 90th I guess you can visit the club.
P.S. the best afterparty: Old Town
This place is the best. If you are at Itaewon at 5 am on Friday or Saturday, you should go there. It brings the craziest audience from around the world. I 've never seen so many great people talk with them about anything from relationship to politics. It looks like Russian place from 90th too, but because it is also European and Africans are hanging out there, it makes the place real funny. Inside they have a pool to play. Drinks cost 10k KWN and they are fine. Place work from 4 am till 10 am. On Friday or Saturday even at 9 am it can be filled with people. Don't be afraid that it is located on a hooker hill. It is safe down there.
