3. Stowaway Lounge
After this Dayton bar racked up more than $5,000 in civil fines over a six-year period for violations of Ohio’s smoking ban, state liquor-control officials decided not to renew the bar’s liquor license.
The Stowaway Lounge has been shut down since at least last February, but for the low price of $105,000, this bar could see new life.
