It’s Saturday night. The buzz and the beats are palpable as the party people begin to queue up for a night out. As you enter, you notice the sleek marble bar, coolly lit with a soft blue glow. From this vantage point, you catch a view of the DJ, confidently manning his post, polished high tops around the bar, comfortable cocktail tables and inti- mate booths flanking seven black-light bowling lanes with neon lines resembling Tron cycles.

These lanes are raised and are furnished with leather sofas while you wait your turn to roll. They are center stage and seem to double as a dance floor so it’s best to bring your game.

The crowd is as diverse as their duds, from casual to retro Material Girls dressed for the ‘80s/’90s Rewind dance party. It’s easy to forget that this is the basement of the SFUNZ building in Haeundae, South Korea.

Welcome to J Pub Sports, the newest creative collaboration from expert club managers and party planners Min Jae-Ha and Marco. Mr. Min’s distinguished service to Busan is well-known from his founding of Club Elune and consulting with top clubs such as Grid and Fix. Marco brings 20 years experience, from managing Thurs- day Party to consulting across Korea. These gentlemen both have a passion for service and a commitment to innovation.

I sidle up to the bar and ordered Marco’s signature drink: tequila silver margarita. Smooth silver blue agave with a freshness of orange, cranberry, and pineapple juice reminiscent of Cabo Wabo, it’s a top-shelf quaff. Despite being quite busy, Marco is patient and engaging.

“I have always been fascinated by music, great cocktails, and creating an attractive and friendly atmosphere,” he explains. Having worked for French giant Pernod Ricard spirits, he certainly knows his craft. Furthermore, besides being the bar manager, he was also J Pub’s designer.

Marco continues, “It’s always fun hanging out with friends, foreign friends, new people I meet here. That’s why it’s so good to start doing this,” referring to opening J Pub.

In addition, the kitchen offers pizza, pasta, salads and appetizers that reflect Mr. Min and Marco’s dedication to crowd-pleasing quality fare.

Also, into games? Besides bowling, there’s top-of-the-line electronic dart boards, two full-size pocket ball tables, a new basketball game and a state-of-the-art hunting game way beyond Duck Hunt or the usual shooting arcade ma- chines.

With 16 flat-screens showing Korea’s AFC Asian Cup games, in addition to hosting disco dance parties and other fun-filled evenings, J Pub is the ideal venue to revel in such occasions. Check out J Pub’s Facebook page for upcoming events. Let the good times roll.
