Trippy is one of the underground clubs in Korea with a proper sound system. It’s a well-designed club with a light installation on the ceiling, a proper DJ booth and great drinks. Located in Itaewon, a district that some Koreans might consider a bit seedy and might not have ventured into 10 years ago, has seen drastic gentrification and the growth of nightlife, restaurants and BBQ around the area. In fact, popular clubs like Cakeshop, Faust and Venue are also around the same area, as is the American military base. The Korean rock scene started at bars and clubs in the neighborhood that GIs used to go to, where Korean bands would play covers of Iron Butterfly and Procol Harem. But Itaewon has gentrified so much since then. Now it has a Comme des Garçons store and a myriad of dessert cafes.
