Nightlife in Seoul

There is no shortage of places to drink in the city. Upscale bars are found in the Apgujeong or nearby Shinsadong districts, where there are good clubs in the major hotels. Good nightlife can be found in Myeongdong, where you can stop for a cup of coffee or a beer at many of the area's establishments. Itaewon has the most foreigner-friendly places for drinking, dancing and partying, such as the 3 Alley Pub.
