My sources tell me that there are some major changes happening to the club scene in Seoul, besides the fact that Club Circle is undergoing renovation. I do hope Circle remains competitive after its facelift, and let’s see if they will go by the same name when it opens again…
3 updates happening to the club scene in Seoul after the jump.
1. Club Answer in Cheongdam-dong will be relocating. They will replace Juliana, Seoul’s one of the most established booking clubs. Answer remains to be one of my favorite clubs in Seoul mostly due to the fact that they bring quality DJs to spin in their establishment.
2. Club Air (formerly Garden) will be changing management and they are reverting to their previous name, Club Garden. Whether the club is here to stay I still have my doubts. In my opinion I think the location for this venue is as tight as it gets. What went wrong with the place here? Was the facility not fancy enough? Did they fail to promote properly for larger and special events? Hmm, it’s always good to hear that another club is re-opening though, I appreciate their trying at the very least though. Let’s hope their effort is not in vain.
3. A megaclub “Milk” is about to open in a few months in Artnouveau City Hotel in Yuksam. Apparently substantial investment was put in to build Korea’s by far the largest club. Able to fit in about 3,000 people, there will be two rooms that can fit 300 and 500 people respectively for private/exclusive clients (the rooms also include private sound system and DJ booths). Apparently it was going to be called Club Coming before (I… don’t know what to say to that…) but now I just heard they changed their name to Club Milk - I shall remain silent and not even try to speculate as to where they get their names. It is to open this late summer. I sure as hell think this is a risky thing… a club that can fit 3,000 people… the question is, can they actually bring that many people into a club in Seoul to start with? We will see in a few months.
