Set in Seoul’s fashion-conscious, upmarket Gangnam district, Glad Live is a beacon of vibrancy that serves as an urban playground for cosmopolitan revelers, both homegrown and international. Offering a “curated lifestyle” that is in full harmony with Seoul’s chic nightlife experiences, the 210 rooms and suites are design-conscious hubs for the stylish at heart. Here, amid sleek monotones that are informed by the stark, sweeping cityscape below, one finds exhibitions of contemporary art and design on the hotel’s 20th floor, accompanied by live music. These two elements—culture and entertainment—are the heart and pulse of the Glad Live experience, with the hotel’s afterhours club, DStar and its live DJ sets and 3D projection mapping, intensifying one’s escape into music and the moment.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Glad Live is housed in a former business hotel, which has now been restructured with two purposes: to welcome passersby inside and to transform the hotel into a neighborhood hotspot. The architecture and design team opened up the first four floors to create a feeling of limitlessness, as well as expanding windows to invite natural light inside and opening up the ground level so that the hotel’s café fuses with the pedestrian boulevard outside. Interior highlights include a metal mesh staircase and two suites with their very own party pools.
