Daegu Nightlife, South Korea


Daegu, known to be the entertainment city of South Korea, it offers a colorful nightlife to visitors and locals alike. Its nightlife includes a wide selection of bars, discotheques, Western clubs, dance clubs, as well as dining and drinking spots around the city. During daytime, visitors spend their time roaming the city for its sights such as ancient temples, pagodas, and festivals that reflect the city’s cultural heritage while at night tourists will experience the modernity of the city through its night spots with locals displaying up-to-date fashion.

When you long for a night-out with your friends and you want a place full of a lot of bars and pubs, just go to the Dongdaegu subway stop since it is just across the street from the popular night spots of the city. In fact, if you are on the subway, stop and you can see the Dunkin Donuts, then you are near the popular bars in the city called the Tombo and the Mask.

Be amazed to find out that Elvis’ fame is still very much alive in China when you run into a popular nightclub called the “Elvis Is in the House!” The lights of this bar are simply amazing; it is perhaps one of the few bars that have lights that change the color of the beer from red to blue. Another thing locals and tourists love about the place is that they do not have a very strict dress code.

Longing for a barbeque at night? Then go grab a taste of the delicious Galbi. This is a Korean-style barbeque meal, where you and your friends will have a table with your own grill to cook your marinated meal brought by the attendants. After which you can have your Korean friends take you to a noreibang, which is a room with your own karaoke, to sing your heart out with Japanese music.

If you want cinemas then you are at the right place since Daegu offers a number of cinemas and theatres to its local citizens and tourists alike. One of which is the Kolon Outdoor Concert Hall, a popular place for its suitable concerts venues. This large outdoor hall, that started to operate on September 29, 2000 in Duryu Park, can accommodate up to 30,000 people offering a variety of performances like musical plays, operas, live music, and a lot more.
