Club Answer, a monument located on the ritzy Cheong-dam district strip, has dominated the electro scene in Seoul for the past few years with the likes of heavyweight acts such as Justice, Deadmau5 and Benny Benassi. Comprised of three floors, the stage is on the first floor, VIP tables are on the second floor and private rooms on the top floor. With a strict smart dress code, the bouncers at this club have a reputation for denying entry based on attire. If you’re new to Seoul, this is a great place to check out. Just don’t wear shorts or flip-flops.

What Mansion lacks in size, it makes up for with lashings of cool. Located in the student/indie district of Hongdae, Mansion is “party central” north of the river, and functions as a lounge on weekdays and as a club on weekends.

Featuring chandelier lighting with a chill lounge feel — in contrast to other Seoul clubs that prefer chaotic lighting — Mansion’s atmosphere (or its lighting anyway) is on the more relaxed side, and gives off a different vibe from other clubs in Hongdae.

One huge plus is that it is not as crowded as other clubs; it’s unusual to wait in line longer than 30 minutes.

That isn’t to say, though, that the parties aren’t wild.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
