Gangnam nightlife

Compared to Hongdae nightlife, Gangnam is more flashy and expensive. The entrance price for the clubs there usually goes around 30.000KRW which is more than double from the Hongdae clubs.
I am not sure I'll be going there, because of the prices mostly, but either way let's just mention a few of the well known clubs there.

Just like in Hongdae, you are able to find NB & Harlem in Gangnam as well. Prices are a bit higher of course. (around 20.000KRW instead of 15.000 or so)

So let's see Gangnam's most famous clubs..

Club Ellui:
It's one of the biggest clubs in Korea and it is considered one of the coolest nightspots. Sometimes, over the weekends, special events take place there, such as having international DJs/artists and so forth.

Here's also a video I came across while doing my research on the club:

Entrance: 15.000 on weekdays, 30.000 on weekends
129 Cheongdam-dong Gangnam-gu (강남구 청담동 129)

Club Mass:
Not as big as its name would suggest but this club is one of the hottest out there, when it comes to house and electronic music. Occasionally, you will also hear trance music as well, around the time the sun comes up again. This club is also considered a bit more trendy compared to all the others clubs of the area that are considered classy and posh.
To get there just get off Exit 6 at Gangnam metro station.

Club Eden:
One of the most luxurious clubs in Gangnam. And of course one of the most expensive ones~
But I have to admit that I think it's worth every penny... here is a video to show you what I mean

Entrance 30.000KRW
602 Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu (강남구 역삼동 602)

Club Answer:
One of the top clubs in the electro-dance music scene, this club has a dress code (just like most of the Gangnam clubs do) so just don't go there with your shorts (unless they are brand heheh..)

Entrance: 15.000 on weekdays, 30.000 on weekends
125-16 Cheongdam-dongm Gangnam-gu (강남구 청담동 125-16)

Club Heaven:
This one opened in 2010 and has become well known. Over the weekends it's usually packed with people.
Entrance 30.000KRW
Subway Line 2 to Seolleung Station (exit 5). Walk straight until you see the Renaissance Hotel (around 5 minutes)

There are still more clubs to go, but I don't think I'll be going either way so that's all I'm going to mention for the moment. So, what do you think of Gangnam's nightlife??
