Nearby Attractions

Since the event starts at 10pm, we have plenty of time to explore near the Art Factory Cheongchun. Let’s explore what are famous near there with me!

* The place for Young Artists, Bongsan Cultural Street!

Bongsan Street was designated as a Cultural Street in 1991. This place was originally famous among Artists, but it became a place for Daegu citizen to appreciate artistic and cultural works. For Daegu citizens, the city organizes various events such as Bongsan Art Festival. At the galleries of the street, people not only can appreciate various artworks but also purchase them. Each gallery owns the owner’s favorite works and displays them but they also give the opportunities for talented, but not famous artists by displaying their art works at the gallery.

* The world first Velvet Gallery, Yeongdo Daum!

Located near Dongseongro, Yeongdo Daum is the world first Velvet Gallery. It has various velvet clothing, fashion and home products. You will witness the whole building is surrounded with beautiful velvet art.

You can also have a cup of coffee on the first floor and buy velvet products in you are interested.

Nearby Restaurants

* Unique pastas in Degu

You must be very hungry after walking around the Art Factory Cheongchun and think you should fill up your stomach before visiting the jazz event. However, you don’t wanna eat Korean traditional food? Then, how about tasting Unique Pastas from Seoga and cook and MIES?

These two places sell unique pastas. MIES Factory is famous for its sweet and sour Salad Pasta and bbq plate. They go very well with draft beer. Seoga and cook offers plus size plate at reasonable price. One place is for 2 to 3 people. It’s interesting that they put an egg fried sunny side up on every menu they serve.

Is your stomach is full now?! Then let’s go to enjoy Jazz music :D
