This 16 lane alley is the default downtown bowling option for most people and it’s easy to see why: it’s open 24 hours, has a fun atmosphere, and a good location (provided you can make it through the crowds of scantily-clad youth outside Phebe 3D Club). Friday and Saturday nights have a relaxed, party-like feel to them bolstered by blaring pop and cheap drinks. The staff are generally friendly and attentive, though the quality of the lanes is fairly average and the alley’s popularity can often mean a wait at peak hours.

Games range between 16RMB (1am-midday, Monday-Friday) and 35RMB (6pm-2am, Friday-Sunday). Members enjoy 1-5RMB discounts (cards cost 200RMB). Shoe rental is 5RMB (sizes go up to 49).

After bowling, stick around and enjoy the small arcade, a decent range of pool tables and the 15RMB beers as well.
