Visit a PC Bang in Koreatown LA For Your Gaming Needs

Do you like PC gaming? PC Bangs, or Internet Cafes, are catered towards who don’t have a PC currently or for a new experience with friends! They are usually close at 2am so you can definitely try to visit late at night if you wanted to. 

What is a PC Bang?

PC Bangs is a store with multiple PCs lined up on desks and equipped with headphones and mice. Bangs, translated to rooms, is a great place to stop by as you can play most any game in a PC room. PC rooms also serve delicious snacks and food, like Korean street food and chips. 

Each place charges a different amount, but one hour does not usually exceed over $10. You can also get a discounted price if you play for a certain amount of hours. With fast-speed internet and high-quality computer parts, you have to visit a PC room to enjoy that gaming experience. 

In South Korea, PC Bangs are open for 24 hours! With affordable prices, PC bangs are loved by all ages to play games or to even just hang around with your friends. You can get that South Korean PC experience right in Koreatown.

What can you do at a PC Bang?

As a gamer myself, it was truly interesting to enter a PC room where you can see everyone playing games and enjoying their time. Especially during COVID, it seems distrustful to play on a gaming computer where many people have touched it before you have. The staff makes sure to sanitize everything, and the headphones have disposal covers they can switch out.

I’ve also seen young students study in PC rooms if they don’t have a PC at home to study with. Even if there are people talking loudly in the PC Bang, it’s a similar ambience to being at a cafe. The clicky sounds of the keyboard is quite calming and acts like white noise, just like a espresso machine at a cafe.  

The PC games that are available would be Fortnite, League of Legends, Valorant, Player’s UnknownBattlegrounds , Overwatch, and more. Most PC bangs offer the most popular FPS games that you can think of. As most people gaming in a PC room, you can definitely feel the excitement and tension around you. 

Are there snacks offered at a PC Bang?

Although not all PC rooms will offer snacks, you can order them if you go to a PC Room with snacks available. Snacks like ramen, Korean corn dogs, and more are served along with refreshing drinks and chips! You can usually eat in your area or the eating area near the snack station. 

In Korea, the menu is more diverse and a lot of PC Bangs allow customers to order delivery food. Eating in front of the PC at a PC Bang is quite common, but you have to be careful to not spill anything. The food served at a PC Bang are similar to a Korean street food restaurant with an array of spicy rice cakes, fish cakes, hot noodles, dumplings, Chinese takeout, fried food, and more. 

How long can you stay in a PC Bang?

There isn’t a specific limit for staying at a PC Bang during business hours. As long as you’re following their rules and paying for the hours you play, the PC Bangs are similar to a cafe. If you visit a PC Bang often, you should definitely apply for a membership! You can get a discount for the hours you play, which will be more convenient if you visit a PC Bang consistently.

However, if you don’t want to open a membership, you should take advantages of the special discounts they can offer. Discounts are usually offered up front, and a lot of PC Bangs will have discounts at around 5 hours of playing time.

You usually pay up front before your session begins. A notification pops up on your screen so that you don’t get kicked out of your session right when it ends. Usually, the notification will signal whether you have 10 or 5 minutes left. At that time, you should finish up the round you’re on, or else you will be kicked out of the game right when your session finishes. You can extend your playing hours by talking to the staff in the front at any time.
