Are you new to the city? Want to try some of the best bars in Indianapolis? We have something for everyone: from wine bars to trendy bars, you will not be disappointed!
No "Must See" list in Indianapolis would be complete without the Ball & Biscuit. Here's why:
- The delicious cocktail, Sazerac is a MUST! It might be the most amazing libation on the planet;
- The interior -- specifically, the intimate seating;
- The service. No wonder they call it “Hoosier Hospitality”;
- The Pork sliders and Mac are also a must!
If you happen to be in the downtown Indianapolis area, make sure you have time for this cozy, amazing bar! Easily the best “Trendy Bar of 2013”.
6 Lounge is a fun bar and the place to be if you want to be amongst the sexiest crowd in the city. It is located in the heart of Indy’s downtown on South Meridian. The music here is generally hip hop/top 40/ dance and the new DJ is on fire! At the risk of spoiling the surprise, the bathroom doors at this bar are the coolest -- you have to see for yourself.
Are you a beer drinker? Want to try out some Indiana beers particularly? Or just want to hang out with friends somewhere in a quiet setting? Tomlinson Tap Room is perfect for you. What I normally do is to have brunch at City Market and then stop by Tomlinson Tap Room for a beer, or a glass of wine from the local wineries. Another suggestion for you is to try a Monon Wheat, which is only available in a can. They have 16 rotating taps so I'm sure you will find something you like. Don’t want to break the bank? Then you have to come here during Happy Hour on Mondays and Tuesdays, since all drafts are only $3.50! Woohoo! The yummy popcorn/chex mix combo topped with white cheddar jalapeno seasoning is a great accompaniment, and it is ONLY $1 with free refills!
Looking for a small, cozy pub with the feel of a true Irish pub? Wellington Pub is the oldest/first established bar in Broad Ripple. This joint is the right place to be when you want to avoid the bar hoppers and club crawlers. This is a small pub, but it’s got character!
Bike Drinking! Pedal on! Want to see all of downtown Indianapolis and stop by some great bars at the same time? Bring your friends and go for a ride on the Handlebar. What an enjoyable way to burn the calories you are drinking instantaneously! Tip: Book early and have fun! Before you go, remember the rules: You can’t hop off while the bike is in motion. This bar only serves beer and wine, but food is welcome.
