Octagon club is the jewel in the crown of Seoul’s vibrant nightlife. Having first opened its doors in 2011, the 3,000-capacity club is located in the basement of the New Hilltop Hotel, right in the city’s famous Gangnam district. Prior to becoming one of the city’s most loved nightclubs, the venue served as a three-story karaoke lounge bar. The venue is now kitted out with a Funktion-One soundsystem, an impressive lighting system and a huge LED screen. Despite its state-of-the-art lasers and festival-like stage, it still channels original industrial warehouse vibes, reminiscent of ‘90s illegal raves.

Over the course of the last year, the South Korean club completely renovated its first floor, including the main stage and main dancefloor. Octagon has also installed a new bar area, replaced the lift to the VIP area with a new staircase and increased the number of VIP tables to meet the ever-growing demand of its high-end clientele.

The club’s bookings in the past year included a mix of international dance stars like Kevu, KAAZE, Damien N-Drix, Daishi Dance, Klosman, Celine Farach, Charles B, DubVision, Tom & Jame, Maddix, KURA and a plethora of Korean rap stars, attracting an average of 2,500 punters a night.

Further testifying to the club’s popularity both in Korea and beyond, Octagon was featured in Louis Vuitton’s recent Seoul tour guide, CNN Travel’s 10 Things To Do In Seoul guide, and has been a key part of the DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs since 2012.
