“Fun late night activity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

It's surreal at first but quickly becomes good old fashioned fun. After grabbing a few beers at Utopia a group of us loaded up into a pickup taxi (negotiate round trip price) and went to the bowling alley. Keep the drinks coming and enjoy!

“Bowling and Lion King whisky”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Every traveller tends to hang out at Utopia bar each night. Once it shuts all the tuk tuks take you a 15-min ride to the bowling alley, as there's not much else to do at night. It's a proper bowling alley, albeit one in the middle of nowhere. Handy tip: bowling is more fun when drunk and the cheapest way is to buy a bottle of their Lion King whisky. A most amusing night. Although, due to drink, we decided to shun the tuk tuk home and walk back. Took 90 minutes. Not recommended!

“Crazy place, a unique experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

As said by others, this is the only place open after midnight in LP. I presume as it's a bowling alley it has some loop hole regulation to stay open. Otherwise they would surely just make it a proper club.
Nevertheless, it's fun, what could be more fun than drunken bowling?! Everyones had a few and having a good laugh. 20,000 a game sounds cheap but we ended up playing four of them. Soon adds up.
However, it's a great place to meet other travellers, LP can seem pretty quiet as there's so many restaurants and bars. But this place gets full by midnight and reminds you of just how many people visit LP. A nice break from the culture heavy LP experience. Wouldn't go every night, but all things in moderation. Great laughs to be had.

“Only place open after 1130 in LP.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great place to go after the bar to keep drinking and keep the fun times going but it is expensive. 100,000 kips for one game of 5 players. Basically you need to be drunk and have good people to have fun here because it is very average!

“Unique asia activity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

After travelling for a few months bowling was a welcomed change and it was very fun! The staff were all awesome and very friendly. Very budget friendly which was also nice! It is pretty far out of town but worth the drive and you can haggle for a good tuk tuk price.
