I'd like to introduce you to my new favorite local hangout Shatto 39 Lanes. There is nothing new about it, actually it's a pretty old-school bowling alley. I drove by it everyday and lived within walking distance for the last 4 years but never stepped foot in the establishment. Maybe it was because of the hideous beige stucco exterior. But oddly enough, now that I am no longer walking distance to it, I go there.
I love everything about Shatto 39, even it's kitschy architecture now (it adds character!). The more practical reasons why I love it is because it has a parking lot and it's free! That is unheard of in ultra crowded Koreatown. As for atmosphere, Shatto 39 is old-school-cool, low-key, no-fuss, laid-back, and awe-some. They also have billiards, a coffee shop, and a dive bar serving cocktails at $5 a pop. Yes it's true, cocktails that don't cost the price of your first born child do exist in this city. That alone should have you up and clapping on over there.
