Hannam Bowling Center

Not far from the main strip running through Itaewon, there lies an extremely popular bowling alley. It isn't the newest or nicest bowling alley in Seoul, but it is well known in Seoul among bowlers.

Hannam Bowling Center, as mentioned above, isn't the best bowling alley in Seoul. However, for whatever reason, it is very popular. It has even seen a number of celebrities stop in for a game or two.

The Strikes

  • There is plenty to do while waiting for a lane to open: pool table, table tennis, arcade, etc.
  • It is open 24 hours.
  • The location is great. Central Seoul. Close to Itaewon.

The Gutter Balls

  • It is a little expensive.
  • It is a bit of a trek from the nearest subway station (Line 6 - Hangangjin).

If you wanna roll, then you've gotta show the dough.
