Nice time

We went there and had great fun playing bowling and drinking beers. Price per game is quite expensive on the bad side, many foreigners there mainly.

Such a good way to finish the night once the curfew kicks in. We managed to get a ride for 5,000 from the centre. Beer isn't over priced at 15,000 and a round of bowling is only 20,000. Such good fun and you can get pizza and snacks.

Its the only thing left after 11pm. Make sure you already got some alcohol and its a surreal experience: expect nothing and bring some people, you'll get a great night.

Overcrowded, no guarantee of a bowling alley, very hostile atmosphere. Sort of feels like you're being closely 'monitored' by staff. Staff look like they're hating their job :-( maybe they need better pay?! The bowling is good fun though! WOULD LOVE TO SEE: *STAFF TREATED BETTER *HEALTHY SNACKS *BETTER ORGANIZED QUEUE SYSTEM

OK, you are at a bar downtown, it's closing early (11.30pm) and you think it's a good idea to continue your night at the bowling, because it closes later. Well, it's a terrible idea. First, the tuktuk will agree to drive you there for 5000 but then he will make you pay twice that price when you arrive. And for... More

I would definitely not recommend to go there after the curfew as it is over crowded. We save our night hanging outside with taxi drivers, the only Laotian people anywhere near this place, sharing their BBQ!

You go here! Tuktuks are waiting for you outside utopia so easy to get there. I was pretty drunk so don't remember a lot apart from throwing a lot of gutter balls. There are no European toilets here just squatting so have fun with that after some brews. They also make pizza here which is perfect. It costs 20,000 kip... More

I visited the bowling alley late at night as it is open after all of the bars closing. We weren't even a full game in and there was a power cut after about half an hour of waiting we decided it was time to leave. Obviously the power cut was out of their control and they were happy to give... More

Bowl and drink until the early morning, really good vibe and a surreal experience as a change of pace from all the culture that has been consumed!

Get ready to throw a lot of gutter balls. The one and only reason people go here is because it's the only place open after all the other places where you can get booze close up. Booze and bowling makes for good fun though and that's why you should definitely go here.
