This diamond in the rough in Koreatown might not be the shiniest on the block, but Shatto 39 Lanes' discount Thursday nights are enough to drag out even the most tightwad fellow. Standing strong since 1954, the bowling alley boasts (surprise) 39 lanes complete with a roundabout bar, coffee shop, arcade and billiards room. Pre-game at the bar with $4 cocktails served up by Eddie, a veteran employee and staple bartender for 35 years, then graduate to a round of in-house bevvies—the super strong Shatto Sandbagger, a mind-bending blend of Bacardi 151, Remi Martin, Grand Marnier, sweet and sour mix, and cranberry juice, promises a punch. In between celebratory strikes, refuel with salty snacks like heat lamp–ready (and heartburn-guaranteed) nachos or the Shatto Special, a combo of chicken wings, stir-fried cabbage and fried egg over rice. Consider this no-frills, no velvet-rope joint your pocket change playground.
