2013 Seoul Tango Festival - Map & Venues


The general area of the festival is located around Garosu-Gil (Garosu Street) in Sinsa-Dong (新沙洞, 신사동). It is one of the most lively and dynamic areas in Seoul, with plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, botiques, and night life. Here are some useful tourist information:

The closet subway stations are Sinsa Station and Apgujeong Station of the orange line (line #3).

This is a google map of all the festival venues. Some venues are outside of the display area. To see the map in a larger window with complete listing of festival venues and recommended hotels please click here.


Seoul has a vibrant tango community and there are many tango bars and studios. We are using some of the most established places for classes and milongas in this festival. We have included some beautiful photos of these places below.

We recommend you to walk to the festival venues whenever possible and avoid taking taxis because taxi drivers often cannot find the venues even when provided with an address.
