Probably Gangnam’s most well-known club, Octagon has ranked among the world’s best: standing at 6th best in the world in 2015, 5th best in 2016, and 7th best in 2017 according to DJ Mag’s Top 100 clubs. Consistently beating out some of the best clubs in the world, Octagon is easily the highest ranked club in Asia. There are four bars on two floors, with food and drinks served by world-renowned chefs and bartenders. Be prepared to drop some cash though, because Club Octagon is one of the more expensive club venues in Seoul, but once you’re in the door you’ll see why the place garners such lofty praise. As usual they have a “dress code,” but in reality that means, “no flip flops, jogging suits, or t-shirts,” so use common sense.
Music and Atmosphere: An EDM and Club Experience For All Stripes
Club Octagon hosts world-famous international DJ’s from a variety of musical genres. It is also a well-visited venue for Korea’s most well-known domestic DJ acts. Be prepared to get down to all kinds of EDM, hip hop, house music, and pop. It all happens on state-of-the-art Funktion-One audio system, giving clubbers a transcendental sound experience. Each of the four bars has different musical and architectural themes, which make it a frequent hangout of local celebrities and Hallyu stars.
