I LOVE this place. This is my go to place when I visit Louisville. It's the oldest active bowling alley in the USA and it is just the BEST. Scottie the manager is FANTASTIC!!!! 8 lanes, great selection of music and just a wonderful atmosphere. There's a bar stocked with all kinds of bourbon. Pool table in the back room.... More

Buchertown is a great neighborhood in Louisville, and Vernon Lanes fits right in. This place today has over 300+ bourbons with a staff that knows there stuff about bourbon. They are the only entertainment facility on the Urban Bourbon Trail. They are always busy so please call ahead for reservations. They also have a Music venue that they call The... More

The bartender gave my debit card that I had used to leave a tab open to another customer. Will never return to this establishment again.

Don't play here, the staff was beyond rude and unprofessional. Can't speak for the bowling lanes but the back room was dirty and looked like it was falling apart. Very disappointing experience and will never be back. Neither will the bands I saw play because they were all disgusted with the staff there as well.

Seems to me as if everyone who has complained below hasn't done there research on this wonderful place. This is one of the most unique venues in the city and is really a blast of a place to party at. Weather you are young or old Vernon Club & Lanes does a great job accommodating there guests. Having rented the... More

Kind of a neat place. Old, colorful, and unique. The place has very little seating and is not the kind of place to bring a date. After a few trips around the block we finally found it last Saturday. There was no crowd so we got a chance to look around a bit. OK place for a guys night out... More

For a poor example of a Louisville nightspot I find this discusting little venue to be dark, dirty, and the service is on par with a mall food cart. Night bar manager tries to pass the time harassing the help vs. Providing service to the space array of reluctant guess. I give this dive 1 star on a scale of... More

This is an old 8 lane bowling alley/club in what looks like an old house, however the bowling alley utilizes modern scoring systems. Bumper bowling is available for the little kids utilizing the inflatable bumper pads. We had a good time bowling the evening we went. Lane reservations are HIGHLY recommended as it can get busy! Pizza and drinks/alcohol are... More
