Attending a jazz show in Seoul may sound like rather fancy activity, but there are ways to find a pure jazz spirit without spending a lot. Take, for example, the monumental All That Jazz, where you can enjoy a show and a cocktail at only 16,000 won. Step into the alley by the Hamilton Hotel to bask in the lively atmosphere of All That Jazz. Founded in 1976, All That Jazz is the oldest jazz bar in Korea. Despite its long history, All That Jazz continues to be one of the hottest jazz clubs in town, with a constant flow of visitors even on weeknights. If you'd rather head yourself to Hongdae, there is Club Evans which has been staying in the area for almost a decade now offering quality jazz shows. Cocktail prices range between 5,000 won and 9,000 won, with 7,000 won - 15,000 won admissions, it's a great place to enjoy music and booze without draining your wallet. In the Daehangno area, there is Chunnyundongando. It might not seem like much from the outside, but Chunnyundongando is one of Seoul’s well-established jazz bars that began its story in 1996. Feast on the live jazz music split into 2 sections with the first starting at around 7pm and the second at around 9pm. The admission during weekdays is 6,000 won and 8,000 won for the weekends.
Movie: 10,000 won. The "popcorn combo": 15,000 won. It just feels way too easy to drain your wallet in Seoul without doing a whole lot. There are ways, though, to fill your day with what would be considered luxuries, at only 20,000 won. You can get inspired at the master artist M.C. Escher's first exhibit in Korea, enjoy jazz shows and a cocktail at Seoul's iconic old-school clubs or, simply, indulge yourself with a juicy hanwoo burger or 3-layer high tea for two and a pâtisserie buffet with a Hangang view. If you're in a mood for partying, you can also bar hop and go clubbing under 20,000 won, and if you're in need of some serious R&R, you can check out the many high-tech rooms at an uber-swanky sauna.
