The name Cafe aA has always been under debate — some call it a cafe, others call it a museum, and there are even some people who consider this venue a showroom for designer’s furniture. But no matter what you call it, aA Design Museum (Cafe aA) provides a multitude of visual, historical, and culinary experiences that are sure to delight even the pickiest of cafe critics.

What’s up, SeoulGrid? The World Cup is finally upon us, and even if you’re not a soccer fan, you’d be a fool to miss out — Korea loves their soccer, and the whole city’s going to be partying like crazy on Saturday night as Korea plays their first match against Greece.
So if you stay in this weekend, you’re making a tremendous error. But just knowing when party isn’t enough — you need to know where to party! And to find and where to party during the world cup, I consulted a team of around 10 experts (read: Koreans). So where are the biggest World Cup party hotspots? Read on to find out what I learned.
Saturday, June 12th, 2010: John O’Callaghan @ Club Volume in Itaewon, Seoul.
Number 24 on DJ Mag’s top 100 DJs. His style is trance:
- By subway: Come out Noksapyeong station exit 3 and head south. Look for Crown Hotel on the opposite side of the road.
- By taxi: tell the driver “Itaewon Crown Hotel.”
Saturday, June 12th, 2010: World Cup with Emily Scott @ Club Heaven in Yeoksam, Seoul.
Saturday, June 12, 2010: Takkyu Ishino @ Club Eden in Gangnam, Seoul
This guy’s style is just plain cool. It’s a heavily percussive kind of minimal techno with twinges of industrial and traditional drumming.
Definitely not your typical Club Eden DJ.
Friday, June 11th, 2010: “Kombination Vol. 2: Underwater” @ Club Heaven in Yeoksam, Seoul.
Friday, June 11th, 2010: Bliss 1st Anniversary @ Bliss, Itaewon, Seoul.
