If you’re coming to Club Arena, you’re coming to church. This exclusive club in Gangnam will show you how to party. It’s a well-known club, but still has that gritty local, underground club feel to it. It’s an experience totally different than the polished clubs and lounges in Itaewon, or the international scene of Itaewon. This is a true locals club where it stays open into the AM hours (closing at 11AM). One of the reasons Club Arena has become one of the most popular clubs in Seoul amongst locals is because of the pretty girls. The owner of the club also owns a KTV (karaoke) in Gangnam with many beautiful hostesses who end up at Club Arena after work hours. And because of the slightly underbelly-world feel, they like to keep it exclusive to true locals who are in the know. That’s why many non-Koreans are often barred at the doors by bouncers. Most of the time, you won’t be able to enter if you’re not with a group of Koreans. Oh, yea and dress code is pretty strict here, so you won’t be able to get in if you’re dressed like a bum.
