Best Of 2019

Surprisingly, there are plenty of cozy spots and corner bars in Northern Kentucky with vintage electro-mechanical coin-op bowling games, but something about Miller’s Fill-Inn makes it one of our favorites. Enjoy live cover bands or a Blues jam over affordable suds and a basket of popcorn, then head to the side room, past the pool tables, and bowl to your heart’s content at just a quarter per game. Six players at a time can play on the bar’s vintage Champagne machine, which was made by the Chicago Coin company (a noted pinball machine manufacturer) back in 1969.
