The tickets are bought. The plans are made. The anticipation is hightened. You’re making your way to Bankers Life Fieldhouse in beautiful downtown Indianapolis for a date night. Or maybe a girls’ night out. A bro fest. A mom and daughter day. Whatever the case may be, you have some planning to do.
Instead of taking the traditional route of heading down for just the event, make a night or afternoon of it.
Downtown Indy has a variety of ways to make the most of an exciting event, so why not do so?
Say you are going to an Indiana Pacers game. Did you know that tailgating is not just for football? A group of dedicated Pacers fans meet at the corner of South Street and Pennsylvania across from the Arby’s and spend time together before tip-off. Get a chance to mix and mingle and start the night off right with a rowdy gang.
Or perhaps a meal before the game at one of the many walkable restaurants:
• Buffalo Wild Wings $$ ($9-$15)
• Champps Americana
• Hard Rock Café $$$ ($16-$25)
• Harry and Izzy’s $$$$ ($26-$30)
• Hooters $$ ($9-$15)
• Mo’s a Place for Steaks $$$$$ (#31 and up)
• Morton’s the Steakhouse $$$$$ ($31 and up)
• Ram Restaurant and Brewery $$$ ($16-$25)
• Scotty’s Brewhouse $$ ($9-$15)
• St. Elmo Steakhouse $$$$$ ($31 and up)
Whatever the occasion, a concert, a bull riding competition, Disney on Ice, you name it: downtown Indianapolis has the perfect accommodation to make the event you choose to go to into a perfect night.
Now, it is to just choose how you decide to spend your time before (and after for a drink maybe?) to make the most of it.
