Went to this joint on a business trip after a long day of travelling. It an old school blues bar with live entertainment. The food was good and the beer was cold.

Generally stay nearby at The Alexander and this place is 3 minutes walk. It’s a proper bar with plenty of live music & decent food.

Always friendly staff and they always seem surprised to see a Brit. It’s good early evening, especially with the music but usually there for a late one....it helps you unwind right?!

Would rather have a drink here than proper downtown. It’s also very close to the stadium, so imagine a little lively on game days.

Iconic downtown business. Came before a colts game. Good, little above average food, ehh on the drinks. Service slow, but had beer specials. Just another place in downtown

Maybe we went a little early, but experience was just ok. Bartender was nice and it looked nostalgic. After a drink or two, we were ready for the next stop.
