Why Lao Bowling Centre is special ?
The Lao Bowling Centre is conveniently located near Lao Plaza Hotel on Khoun Boulom Road in Vientiane, Laos. The centre offers bowling lanes along with music and the ubiquitous Beerlao.
The Centre can accommodate large groups with its 12 lanes and up to six people per lane . A special offer for bowlers is the Point Score Competition held every Tuesday evening. Whoever gets the high score will get prizes from the Centre.
As well as the bowling alley, Lao Bowling Centre also offers pool and snooker tables for hire by the hour. A useful tip: this place has a more ‘flexible’ closing time than other nightspots in the city and is usually busiest when all other bars have closed.
What to explore at Lao Bowling Centre?
A visit to a bowling alley is a definite ‘must-do’ for anyone interested in a lively night out with loud music, cold beer and chatty, smiling locals.
The 10-lane bowling alley is open during the day at a discounted rate – a great time for families to have a peaceful game – but it’s at night when this place really comes alive. The music is the first thing you hear before a scene that can’t fail to make you smile: local people using all manner of styles to knock the pins down; some in bowling shoes, most barefoot, all jovial.

Tips for you
The lanes are uneven, the music selection is eclectic, there's communist paraphernalia everywhere, and the bowling system looks like it was installed during the Cold War. Believe it or not, this all adds to the charm of the Lao Bowling centre. It's only $2 AUD per game, the staff are very friendly, and you're guaranteed to see some of the most atrocious bowling there is. Check it out!
A good experience. Were allowed to bowl barefoot. Alley computers are absolute antiques! (the screens are as round as the balls). All the balls have dings, so good luck aiming!
