Stopped in here on a Sat. night recently while in town. Really liked this bar. It was small, but comfortable. It had an old look/feel to it. Bartender was very friendly, drink prices about right. We will stop here again next time we are in town.

This was very crowded when we went there as it is very popular. Hard to get a drink for the crowds. Found it to be a fun atmosphere with no cover charge

Stopped in on a late Friday...small, dark, typical dive bar. We think the bartender may have been drunk but overall fun place to make a pit stop in

My wife and I visited Indy for a night out on the town, and this was (I think) the last place we visited before heading back to the hotel for the night. It's small-ish, and was pretty jammed with people, but it was a LOT of fun. They had karaoke the night we where there and this big dude sang... More

Pretty dead, very small, no food or draft beer. Probably better on a different day of the week. Just stopped in at night during a conference.

This is place is hilarious. Fun atmosphere. Went a couple times during my stay in Indianapolis. Sometimes there is Karaoke, or some good top40 with everyone dancing, even on the bar top. Outside you can enjoy some cornhole, which I learned how to play here! They also have souvenirs.

We rolled in on a Sunday night on our way to Printer's Alley. Who can resist a place called "Wild Beaver"? The two women I was with couldn't for sure. The place was pretty dead, there was the 3 of us and probably 6 other people in the bar while a young hopeful belted out tunes on stage. Drinks were... More
