Top Clubs in Seoul,Difference between GANGNAM & HONGDAE & ITAEWON District !
#1 reason why the nightlife in Seoul is so special is because Koreans love to get drunk. Every year, South Korea tops the charts for the highest consumption of alcohol per person in the world. In fact, Koreans drink more than twice the amount as Russians, with an average of 13.7 shots of liquor per person per week (2014). They like to drink soju and it is veeery cheap. Koreans drink it like beer.
1. Bring the real passport ( copy of passport or other ID cards won’t work in some clubs )
2. Be aware of Age Limit
I went to many clubs around the world, and I was very surprised when I saw 30, 40 years old people were in the clubs. In Korea, normally age limit is 19~30 years old.
If you want to go to some place, check the age limit first before you decide to go.
3. Be aware of Dress Code
Some clubs are VERY STRICT to the dress code and your appearance. This is quite subjective, but you should try to look formal & proper. GUYS!!! Don’t wear a short pants even it’s very hot in summer.

Gangnam– Gangnam is the main district for Seoul’s luxurious and posh nightclubs that are multi-leveled with massive dance floors and top-notch sound systems. Gangnam is compared to the “Beverly Hills” of Seoul with its wealth and fashion. Basically, this is where all of the celebrities and rich folks hang out and spend ridiculous amounts of money, but it’s also trending for young 20-somethings who want to party all night. If you want to do some serious clubbing in Seoul, then definitely go to Gangnam!

Hongdae– This is the ultimate hipster area of Seoul. Go here to see young Korean trends and fashion at its finest. Hongdae is like a college campus, because there are several big universities around the area. Everything in Hongdae is cheap, and there are more bars and clubs than I can count. It’s always crowded, and the street vendors/local restaurants stay open 24 hours. Every night you can find several amazing streetartists, but also in the afternoon there are some streetartists. In the evening Hongdae is very crowded, mostly in the weekend.
