Clubbing in Hongdae!
Last night a group of students and teachers went to Hongdae to go clubbing. Everyone knows Korean clubs are the best so we had to experience it at least once. We decided to go to NB1 and NB2 because they are hip-hop clubs and play the best dancing music (most clubs play techno, but we all preferred hip-hop). Before 10pm it costs $10 to get in and after that until midnight it’s $15, which is still very cheap compared to others (from what we researched most clubs cost around $30 to get in). The cover fee includes entrance to both NB1 and NB2 along with two free drinks. First, we went to NB2. There are three floors and each one was packed to the max. The scene was insane and there was never a dull moment. I absolutely loved it and plan on going back my last weekend here. Half way through the night we went to NB1 across the street. The same type of music is played here, but it’s much smaller and hardly crowded. Besides size, the difference between the two is that people at NB2 never stop dancing while at NB1 more people are drinking and talking. People still danced, but not as much as NB2. There were also more foreigners at NB1 compared to NB2. Plan on having all eyes on you anywhere you go though because everyone knows you’re a foreigner and will want to dance with you, especially at NB2. We arrived to the club at midnight and did not leave until 5am. Arriving earlier is fine, but the most popular time to go clubbing is 1am-5am. The night went by so fast and was over before we knew it. I definitely recommend experiencing a Korean club! Just be prepared for the big crowd and non-stop dancing!
