Hitting the club scene in Busan offers you a variety of options – from the higher-end clubs in Seomyeon and Haeundae to smaller, more intimate settings where you can enjoy dancing without getting lost in the piles of pulsating bodies on the dance floor.
Ghetto, located on the fourth floor of the building nearly across the street from the Thursday Party in the heart of the Kyungsung University district, takes a no-frills approach to partying, though its excellent sound system is no slouch when the night starts to heat up.
And while Ghetto may not have as much glitz and glamor as other clubs in the city, it is undoubtedly one of the hottest spots to hit on the weekend to get your groove on.
With a laid-back atmosphere and undeniably the cheapest bottle service in the city (bottles begin as cheap as 39,000 won), Ghetto boasts an eclectic mix of expats and Koreans getting down to DJ sessions featuring an explosion of soulful, funky grooves with a hip-hop flavor.
Entrance to the club is free, and, unlike some clubs in the city, there are no discriminatory entrance barriers based on nationality, age or sex – a fact that owner Yoon Han-sik is very proud of.
It’s best to arrive early so you’ll have a better chance of getting one of the booths to settle in at before the party usually gets bumpin’ around 11. Darts and beer pong are also available for those looking to take a rest from the dance floor.
Club Ghetto is open from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. from Friday to Sunday and holidays. No dress code is enforced; however, outside drinks are strictly prohibited. Call 010-4488-4697 or visit them on Facebook www.facebook.com/GhettoHiphopLounge
