Apgujeong – Once in a Blue Moon : Seoul

One of the amazing things about Seoul is that in almost every district there are lots of nightlife options. Pedestrian streets packed with attractive young folks occupying an endless selection of pubs, clubs, restaurants, street food eateries, etc. It’s one of the remarkable things about Seoul. I was blown away by how many wonderful nightlife district options they have and how nice it was to wonder around them.

 

But different streets do have slightly different themes and target audiences. Looking for a live jazz band performance, almost all the guidebooks were unanimous in their recommendation of Apgujeoung, off Gangnam. Plenty of options there, but one of the first jazz clubs in Seoul still operating today is “Once in a Blue Moon”.

 

Apgujeong – Once in a Blue Moon : Seoul

 

Lonely Planet has the details :

An intimate and famous Apgujeong club with live jazz from two groups of performers every night, each performing two sets between 7.30pm and 12.40am. The free admission is offset by charging W15,000 for cocktails and beers, and eating costs lots more.

  • Address – Seolleungno Gangnam
  • Transport- line 3 to Apgujeong, Exit 6
  • Website – www.onceinabluemoon.co.kr
  • Phone – 02 549 5490
  • Price – admission free
  • Hours – 5pm-2am

Wikitravel writes –

“Great food and atmosphere are a plenty at this snappy restaurant/jazz bar. Well worth the money for a nice night out. Live jazz music every night.”
