  • M2

One of the first House music club in Korea, being around for more than 10 years, touted as a superclub (stretching that word rather far I would say) The most consistently popular House club at the moment. Is often very crowded. The music now is more EDM. You'll know you're in there when you see the crazy green laser.

  • NB2

A big hip hop club. It's touted as one of the best hip-hop clubs in Seoul. Although the club tends to usher in people at numbers dangerously close to capacity, the good track list has the party going strong til the early morning hours. The track lists are updated to the minute with the latest popular hip-hop tracks as well as the unforgettable classics. Rumored to be owned by Korea's YG Family, it is often graced by well known celebrities and boy/girl band groups.

Girls need to be wary of men in this club, however. Groping, forceful grabbing, and even theft are common here due to the thick crowd.
