Once upon a time, there was a culture space called Platoon Kunsthalle. If you're still mourning the demise of the former creative hub, you'll be happy to hear that the Platoon team is back, this time in the heart of Itaewon. If the opening party was an indicator of things to come, the future looks bright—a completely packed out venue with a healthy mix of foreigners and Koreans. Platoon Sonnendeck just might be the hippest place in Seoul this summer. The venue, with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, a motorized roof and generous grassy areas— albeit artificial—lives up to its promise. This will be a space to properly chill out in the signature beanbags, sipping on cocktails and beer. The daytime vibe on the roof is relaxed and calm, but on weekend evenings people get into a dancing mood thanks to electronic music by resident DJ Tobias and guests. Diverse program formats like the Donnerstags Bar, which takes place every Thursday; parties; and the odd exhibition keep it interesting and worth visiting any time. And in case you don’t feel like partying all the time, you can apply to rent one of their co-working desks that come with perks like free coffee and juices and are available weekdays.
