Are you seeking a wonderful place to chill and relax while listening to live jazz music in Seoul? Boogie Woogie l in Itaewon could be a fantastic destination for you. Along with lovely live jazz music, they also serve delicious food and drinks at a very affordable price.
Entering Boogie Woogie
Boogie Woogie is located in Itaewon near Noksapyeong Station. It is on the 2nd floor of one of the buildings in the area.
Upon entry, you will notice that the place is quite small, so that is why I think a reservation is required. You MUST make a reservation via text message. The number can be found at the end of the article.
But, there’s enough room for at least 20 people inside the live jazz bar. It is perfect for a couple looking for a memorable date or for a small group of friends looking for somewhere to chill out after a long day at work.
Every night during the week, there are two groups of jazz musicians that perform for two hours each and three groups of jazz musicians on the weekend.
The first jazz performance starts at 6:00 in the evening and the last performance ends at 10:00 PM on weekdays, and at midnight on weekends.
You are welcome to stay as long as you wish to watch and enjoy the jazz live performance, which is absolutely free to attend and includes deferred payment for the jazz artists.
After the performance of each musician, you will be given an envelope by a bar employee. You can fill the envelope with any amount of money to show appreciation for the live jazz performance. So, make sure to bring some cash.
Food & Ambiance
The delicious food and drinks that they serve are among the things that I enjoy the most. Given the high quality of the food and drinks, plus the jazz show, the price is fairly reasonable. Their pizza and buffalo wings are top-tier!
The jazz bar’s interior has a highly romantic ambiance, and the fascinating music will make you feel wonderful.
The area is adjacent to the Banpo Han River park, so witnessing the rainbow fountain show there to conclude the night will be lovely after spending a wonderful evening listening to live jazz music.
