Basement nightclub on ‘Homo Hill’. TRANCE is especially crowded on late Friday and Saturday nights when they have drag performances.

There’s a cover charge which includes one free drink. Drinks are reasonably priced. Cruisy. Attracts both locals and foreigners. Open every night until late.

weekday: 23:00 - late

weekend: 23:00 - late

  1. Hello!!

    “I went there on 2014 and I really love this t-night club. So do you have some web site or KakaoTalk of this bar. I wanna see it again. Or maybe some pics about it.“

  3. Don't bother

    “Don't even bother. They have a bouncer who doesn't let foreigners in.“

  5. Trance Bar

    “I went there in 2004 and had a great experience. Came back to Korea to teach in 2013. I went there once and it was so-so. I went again . It was Saturday. The door keeper said sorry: "KOREANS ONLY!" I was shocked but had to leave. I went again much later- in January 2015 "Sorry-KOREANS ONLY." Yep, I was refused entry again. I am Western and white. I am not coming back and I am not sorry to have to give this bar a very low rating. This is such a pity, because in 2004, I would go there often, it was relaxed and Korean and western gay guys were welcoming. It was a regular friendly bar. I even dated a guy I met there. Now it's not nice. Even if they let you in you might not be welcome.“

    “Lousy place. Poor crowd with cover charge. Does not come with house pour on cover charge as mentioned. Will not come back“
