Nightlife in Busan offers a wealth of experiences, from flashing neon in the shopping districts to brilliantly lit historic buildings to pubs, cocktail lounges, breweries and live entertainment. For live music, concerts and performances, check out the Busan Cultural Center in Nam-gu. If you're looking for hip nightclubs, check out MurpII in the Novotel Ambassador. If rock music is your thing, head for the UT Bar, a rock club just across the street from the MurpII. If you want a more Western pub experience, check out HQ Gwangan with pub grub, trivia nights and great Gwangan Bridge views.

    You can find great beer at Busan's first craft brewery, the Galmegi Pub, just steps from Gwangalli Beach. If you want a more refined, casual experience, hit up the Maru tea shop with its warm, calming vibe and great herbal teas.
