South Korea’s bustling capital is not only a major hub for music, fashion, and entertainment. The local gay scene has been growing in recent years, and more and more LGBT establishments have popped up. Here are the eleven best LGBT bars in Seoul.

Owoo

Owoo is amongst the younger gay establishments in the city. The bar has a Nordic interior with many wood features. The place has become so popular that there is almost always a line outside. Once you’re in, you’ll have the choice between delicious drinks and food that are moderately priced. We recommend the Honey Butter Chip and delicious sweet crispy fried chicken.

The biggest lesbian club in South Korea, Club Labris only opens its doors Friday and Saturdays. The delicious cocktails are crafted with high-quality liquors and juices, and DJ Limzi heats up the dance floor with sick beats. Admission is only for ladies, which might not appeal to everyone but definitely creates a safe and comfortable environment for the female party animals.
