“drunken bowling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

after everything else in LPB closes this is the place to go, and this is also where all backpackers go to continue their drinking. In short, there are drunken backpackers here who play bowling and drink cheap alcohol (LAK 45.000/ $7 for a whole bottle of whiskey) as they continue their night. Worth a visit, but don't expect too much

“Bazaar but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Get pilled into tuk tuks post shutdown of utopia and get ready for actual bowling (and booze).

Loads of one night worth of fun but not worth a repeat. Like my mate said, "been there, done that, didn't get the t-shirt"

“strange but true”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

the most random place to go for a night out but as the bars have a 11.30pm curfew this is where the backpackers flock for the night and you can have a great night down there especially if you have a big group the alcohol is quite cheap and the tuk tuks are waiting for you when you stumble out at 2am!

“Bowling In LP? Who Knew?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We went to the bowling alley around 10PM and then closed it down at 2AM. An eclectic group of 7 of us went there and had great fun drinking Lao beer and bowling. The place was pretty full at around midnight. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. Total price for a tuk tuk ride was 35,000 Kip.

Great fun!

“Not what you would expect but good fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

So if you think you are amazing at bowling and want to show off your skills, this is not the best place to go. It has almost nothing to do with the bowling, the lanes are old and the balls limited. However the social side is great a good way to end off your night! Tuc Tucs wait for you as it is a bit further out of town!
