Milwaukee Fun

Mini Bowling is fun for everyone. The bar is divey, but the people are great and bowling is fun. Make sure you tip the pin setters.

I think Koz's should be on everyone's Milwaukee Bucket List. Anytime we have friends visiting from out of town, we always try to take them to Koz's. It's a great off-the beaten path place- kind of a hole in the wall, cheap beer, a jukebox, and mini-bowling with pin setters. It's unique, fun, and not touristy.

If you are looking for fancy and upscale this is not the place. If you are looking for a classic hometown Milwaukee experience, this is the place for you! 4 lanes of duckpin bowling. Make sure you have a reservation first. The pin setters are so cool and we had a great time. Drinks are pretty reasonable as well. We... More

We took our kids to Koz's to try out the old school mini bowling lanes and had a lot of fun. Small corner bar in a typical older south-side of Milwaukee neighborhood. Don't expect a lot of flash. Pins are reset manually, scoring is pencil and paper, but with that in mind ahead of time we had a good time.... More

Neighborhood bar meets bowling alley...what's not to like? $7 pitchers of Miller High Life, great digital juke box, and coolest party bowling you will ever enjoy. Don't forget to tip the bartenders and especially the pinsetters!

My wife, daughter and I went to Milwaukee to visit my older two daughters to see our new granddog. My older daughters said let's go do something that involves math and exercise. It was going bowling at Koz's Mini Bowling. It was a complete blast bowling and watching others. The place is very old and has only 4 lanes. The... More

We had a delightful time bowling alongside both families and younger adults. The friendly pin setters added to the charm of this quaint Milwaukee bar. Be sure to bring your match skills because there is no electronic scoring!

This is a great place to go for dates... the bowling alley is simple, much smaller than I expected, and they have actual people setting up the pins after each ball. I noticed it got pretty busy towards the end of the night, so you might have to wait a bit. It's definitely worth it though!

A true 'Laverne and Shirley' type feeling, and I mean that in a good way. Koz's should be near the top of anyone's 'to do' list when they're in Milwaukee. These mini bowling establishments used to be all over Milwaukee, sadly, only Koz's remains. Be sure to grab a few drinks and bowl a couple of games, if you don't,... More

I found this place on Trip Advisor and was hell bent on going here. I had the best time ever. We got in about an hour before men's league started, so we got to bowl 3 games and then hang out at the bar and watch men's league mini bowling and get to know Cesar the bartender and Romero our... More
