The Scouting Report

If you know anything at all about Hongdae, then you would expect nothing else from this bowling alley than a thumping good time. In some respects, it feels more like a club than a bowling alley.

Music, strobe lights, drinks. It's all here. Even the bowlers let loose and dance a little while waiting for their turn to bowl.

Yeah...it's probably not the best place to bowl if you are looking for a serious game. However, if you just want to have fun with a group of friends in Hongdae, then Taewha Bowling Alley scores a perfect 300.

The Good Stuff

  • It has an awesome, lively ambience.
  • The air-conditioning is fabulous. It is a great place to duck into during the summer.
  • They have a pretty reasonable drink selection considering it is a bowling alley.
  • The location is great. Doesn't get much more exciting than Hongdae.
  • The hours are great. Open from early until late!

The Not-So-Good Stuff

  • It isn't that big. You may have to wait a bit to get on a lane.
  • It is a little pricey. *See the prices below*
  • If you don'w want to draw a lot of attention to yourself and you are wearing a lot of white...DON'T go here.
