A stalwart on the Busan music scene, the Basement is a long-running pub and music venue in the heart of the thriving area around Pusan National University (PNU). It’s known by expats and Koreans alike for promoting great independent music from Korea and beyond. The bar also has cheap drinks and a welcoming, inclusive vibe – at the venue’s frequent gigs, you’ll often see bar staff and owner Liam on the dance floor. Head upstairs for comfy sofas and a more intimate space with a bird’s-eye view of the performance.
