Enjoy the Last Days of Summer at a Hotel Pool Party in Daegu

Summer in the city is best enjoyed poolside, with a cold drink in hand, chill music playing in the background, good food, and a lively crowd.  Whether you’re looking to spend the day unwinding by the pool or to dance the night away, a summer hotel pool party is a way to take a mini summer vacation without ever having to leave the city.
Located just across the street from the convention center, the Inter-Burgo Hotel at Exco features a second story pool with a stunning mountain view.  Picnic benches and umbrella-covered outdoor seating line the pool on three sides, with the last side devoted to those that wish to sunbathe in for-rent lounge chairs.  At the far end of the pool there is a smaller pool for kids, as well as an air pump to inflate beach balls and inner tubes. 

While the pool itself is the main attraction, on weekends the outdoor kitchen serves up massive plates of made-to-order fried chicken and platters of fresh fruit and cheese.  The poolside bar offers everything from draft beer to ice-cold cocktails and bottles of champagne. 
The laid back atmosphere, live DJs, and poolside refreshments contribute to the loungey, resort-like vibe.  It’s not quite like a raucous Vegas-style pool party, but it’s not a pool solely for children either.  The Inter-Burgo falls somewhere in the middle as a place where both adults and families can enjoy a day of sun and relaxation.
At night, Daegu’s pool scene transforms into a pop-up club as the lounge chairs are removed in favor of an outdoor dance floor and illuminated strings of overhead lights.  Every Friday and Saturday throughout the summer, the Inter-Burgo Hotel hosts a variety of pool parties in collaboration with their popular club, Second Hotel.  Upcoming pool party themes include a water gun party and beach ball love matching.

The Inter-Burgo Hotel at Exco is just one of many outdoor pools to escape the heat.  If you haven’t already, add a pool party to your summer bucket list and enjoy the remaining days of summer, poolside.
