Rainbow Hookah Bar — Gangnam


One of my favorite hot spots in Gangnam is Rainbow Hookah Bar. It’s a really cool place with a laid-back lounge type of atmosphere. They have live music sometimes and a DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. The DJ comes on the scene around 11pm and plays a variety of hip hop, rap, kpop, and electric/dance music. There is always a good mix of Korean and foreign patrons, and even when it’s crowded, it still feels very comfortable and cozy inside.

When you walk downstairs into the Rainbow dungeon entrance, you will be greeted by an ID checker. You must show your passport or ARC (Alien Registration Card) to get in. Once you are cleared, you will be given a soft storage bag for your shoes. No shoes allowed inside of Rainbow. Then, you will proceed into the huge, dimly lit open room to your spot on the floor with your shoes in hand. They have a few different sitting areas, and you can choose to be near the DJ, in the center of the room, or on the outskirts.

The room is filled with Rastafarian colors and hanging lights, which gives it a kind of hippie vibe. After you get settled on the floor, you can go to the bar and order your drinks. I would highly recommend that you try one of their “bucket drinks” and share it with someone. It’s a huge and powerful tasty mixed drink for 30k won. You and your drinking partner will only pay 15k won each, or you can also try to drink one whole bucket on your own.

They also have Hookah and food there, so you can order a flavored Hookah of your choice for 15k won and/or some bar type food items. It’s best to go with a group of friends and split the cost of everything.

For a fun night out in a really different kind of atmosphere, I would highly recommend that you check out Rainbow in Gangnam. You will definitely have an unforgettable experience there. I have been there several times, and each visit has been a blast. Rainbow is a great “pre-gaming” spot before clubbing, a nice option after dinner, a cool place to go with co-workers or friends, and an awesome place for dates. Rainbow is really the perfect place for almost any occasion.  Enjoyyyy!!!! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ 😊 ☺

To get there >>> Take the Green line #2 to Gangnam Station. Exit at #10 and walk straight for about two blocks. Turn left at the Mixxo Store Corner. Keep straight until you see Dunkin Donuts. Turn right at Dunkin — and Rainbow will be on your right. Walkdownstairs to enter. **Remember your ID!!!**

There is also a nice foreign bar right across the street called Woodstock. If you want a smaller bar atmosphere with a dart board, check out Woodstock, which is just across from Rainbow — upstairs on the third floor. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ 😊 ☺
