Groove Korea celebrates its ninth year in publication and we need you to celebrate!
Taking place in Thursday 22nd October, Groove Korea will take over the Platinum Beer Pub in Hongdae for one night only.
The party will go back in time with a Back To The Future theme to coincide with the 30th year release of the popular Michael J. Fox movie. Fancy dress as one of the characters is optional and other Back To The Future games – together with a Groove Korea twist – will be played on the night.
Starting at 7.28pm, the anniversary will celebrate the time that the characters return to the future in Back To The Future 2. For three hours (between 7.28pm-10.28pm), a special Platinum all-you-can-drink period will celebrate nine years of Groove Korea for a mere KRW 15,000. Enjoy any of the Platinum brews from Pale Ale, Oatmeal Stout, White Ale and Gold Ale and a side of scrumptious snacks.
For entertainment, an eighties to noughties playlist has been prepared and HBC-based group Too Much will be belting out some classic covers. The pub will also be divided into Back To The Future areas with a fifties Enchantment Under The Sea area, a Western photo corner and a Back To The Future Groove Korea headlines post-it wall.
The party will also have a charity raffle, with tickets on sale throughout the evening. Prizes have been kindly donated by Platinum, Banyan Tree Seoul, High Street Market, Airbnb, What The Book, The Bungalow, KISS, Body & Seoul and Gavin’s Sausages which means a host of prizes are up for grabs. All money raised will be donated to charity – to be revealed on the night.
The party continues at Freebird after the round at Platinum. Djs and bands including Shenanigans, Sons of Tiger, and Blue Turtle Land will be performing well into the night. The Platinum entrance fee includes free entry to Freebird for our own Enchanting dance evening.
Groove Korea’s ninth anniversary party will be attended by all your favorite Groove Korea editorial team and contributors and should also be an evening to celebrate our favorite publication. We are ready to go back in time and to celebrate a bright and entertaining future – are you?
