Seoul is truly the definition of a city that never sleeps, and you’ll quickly realise that the city is even more alive after dark! For a taste of the local nightlife, there’s nowhere better to explore than Hongdae, the city’s spirited and creative neighbourhood which is known for its artistic and student vibes, as well as its vibrant nightlife which is always buzzing - from street art to street performances, there’s always something exciting to see here! Discover the locals’ style of a night out which involves many ‘cha’, or rounds - indulge in some delicious cuisine and traditional drinks from a tiny local cafe, head to a bar for your next ‘cha’, stop by a ‘hof’ where you can indulge in plates of Korean fried chicken and beers, then head to a karaoke bar to finish the night! With your host by your side, enjoy an authentic night out Seoul style, get to know the local drinking etiquette and try the locals’ favourite drinks like ‘soju’ and rice wine. And who knows, maybe you’ll be able to pull an all-nighter in true local style!

What you'll do

Join a like-minded Local Host for a night out in true Seoul style!

Discover how the locals’ like to spend their evenings and immerse yourself in the city’s night culture with your host. You’ll learn the local drinking etiquette, sip Korean speciality drinks and enjoy a night out made up of different ‘cha’, or rounds, which is how the locals do it! 

Start your night in a tiny backstreet cafe, hidden away from the main streets of Hongdae where you can enjoy a bite to eat and a beer, or try ‘soju’, the famous Korean liquor. Your local will share with you the tips and local drinking etiquette with you, so you’ll know you're really drinking like a local!

For your next ‘cha’, head to a bar that your local knows you’ll love. Whether you’d like to catch some live music, see the K-pop scene, visit a ‘self bar’ where you take your own beer from the fridges or sip a fancy cocktail, your host will recommend a spot based on your preferences and tastes.

Your third ‘cha’ will be another opportunity to indulge in some delicious local cuisine, as locals use this round to visit a ‘hof’, a bar where you can sit at a table and where food is served. Enjoy the locals’ favourites of beer and Korean friend chicken - delicious - and refuel ready for the next cha!

If you’re up for more, your final stop with your host will be to visit a karaoke bar! Seoul style, you’ll visit a popular ‘noraebang’, or private singing room, where you can sing your heart out and know you’ve really experienced a true Seoul night out!
