Club District – Grand Opening

District is fairly new on the club scene and is having an official opening this weekend, which is likely to be massive. It is an elegant, stylish place, which is definitely a welcome venue to the somewhat grimy Itaewon. District also holds a bar and grill, with a great selection of beers and cocktails to start off your night. This weekend they have some pretty exciting acts – including a burlesque troupe and numerous DJs. Like District on Facebook and you can be kept updated on the opening and future events.

SATURDAY

Crime Scene Sketch Night

If you like art, CSI, or are having withdrawal symptoms from the absence of Dexter in your life, then this could be right up your street. There will be an opportunity for you to draw a nude model in various poses (ooh, err!) such as stabbing, suffocation and suicide. We know it sounds random but it will definitely make for an interesting start to your Saturday evening. For details on how to take part, take a look .

The charity flea market FIFTY SEOUL has been ongoing for almost a year now and is always worth swinging by to pick up some second-hand or vintage at dirt cheap prices. We went to a previous market run by the same people at Customellow in Hongdae and took some pictures, if you’d like an idea of what it’s like. The location changes often and this time around the market will be at Suninjang Space ‘Ways of Seeing’ in Yongsan gu. To keep updated with times and changes check out the FIFTY SEOUL .

Rock도 Fundraiser 2

The purpose of this night is to raise money for a free summer festival, showcasing some of Korea’s biggest acts. It’s cheap at just 5000 won entry, with the promise of 5 bands (Magna Fall / Table People / The Rub / The March Kings), popular within the expat and local community. For more info, click
