Daegu nightlife

Daegu is a big city, and has a big nightlife.  Downtown is where it’s at, but stores in all parts of the city are open late.  Even the tiny little “shanty” places – they stay open until at least 10pm every night. 

Downtown Daegu is about a 15-20 minute subway ride from our place.  It’s not bad.  Downtown is a zoo.  There’s shops everywhere, people everywhere, and cars everywhere.  The cars drive down these little streets filled with people – streets that you don’t think cars should be driving down.  So you have to be on the lookout all the time.

Also, there are foreigners EVERYWHERE…and by “foreigners,” I mean Americans, Canadians, Brits, etc.  There are a significant number of English-speaking people who like to socialize in the bars and shops downtown.  It was a little weird to tell you the truth.  I figure, if the time comes when I want to just speak English on a night out – downtown is the place to go.

Last weekend, we met up with some of our new EPIK friends and went downtown.  One of the veteran EPIK teachers (who’s been in Daegu for 18 months now) was hosting a trivia night.  You enter as a team, pay 20,000 won, and the winning team takes all.  He was hosting it at a very popular downtown bar called ‘The Communes.’  Our team started out strong and then quickly went downhill.  The round of questions pertaining to “Life in Daegu” really killed us, since we’d only been there for exactly 1 week.  But fun nonetheless.


Plus, got to check out the infamous “bagged drinks.”  There are four places in the downtown area where you can buy a mixed alcoholic drink…in a bag, a straw included. 🙂
