Seoul is one of the craziest cities for a good night out! In this article I featured the top night clubs you must visit in Seoul and which ones you should avoid.
- When: Best time to visit is fall (September & October)
- Tip: Korean clubs are open until the early morning, do not go clubbing prior to 12am. Stay in the bar district Hongdae before making your way to Gangnam on the last train.

The nightlife in Seoul is vibrant and full of energy. I visited the best nightclub in Korea which has been ranked in the world's top 20.
Best Places for Nightlife in Seoul
1. Club Octagon
The most popular nightclub in Seoul & Korea - many famous DJs have played here
2. Club Ellui
Second most popular nightclub in the Gangnam district
3. Club Cocoon
Not as great as No. 1 and 2 but still good for a fun night out - the Koreans here go absolutely crazy
Octagon has a good balance of girls and guys. It even has an open concept kitchen where you can order top quality dishes until the morning hours.
I had so much fun at Octagon that I forgot to check out Ellui which is another popular club and #39 on the world list.
During the week I checked out bars and clubs in the Hongdae district. Cocoon was one of the better places in Hongdae and is always packed no matter what day of the week primarily with university dudes (sausage alert!).
It is also funny that Hongdae is swamped with a bar chain called Ho-Bar. You can find them all over the district ranging from Ho-Bar 1, Ho-Bar IV till Ho-Bar 10.
I've made a lot of new friends in Seoul and I hope to be able to return to this place again in the near future.
