Notes of live music echo throughout the two-story structure of Beale Street Live, summoning feet to the dance floor of this Mardi Gras–themed bar and restaurant. The eatery’s savory appetizers, such as steak fries or mozzarella sticks, make it easy for friends to share or play edible Jenga. Classic pub-style bites such as hot wings and nachos satisfy cravings, and cheeseburgers and classic deli, grill, and barbecue sandwiches quell ampler appetites. On top of nixing hunger, visits to Beale Street Live also conquer boredom with brisk games of pool or live musical performances illuminated by a professional lighting system.
Friendly barkeeps at Bubbaz Bar & Grill distribute domestic beers and plates of hot burgers, pizzas, wings, and sandwiches in a casual, activity-packed sports bar. A menu of fried and grilled fare fills bellies with classics such as the Philly chicken sandwich with swiss cheese, grilled onions, and a side of fries each shaped like a different ward of Philadelphia (a $6.50 value). The California chicken wrap swaddles marinated chicken alongside red peppers and avocados, sweetening the mélange with sliced cucumber (a $6 value), and a 7-ounce sirloin steak roosts over potato skins, mixed veggies, and garlic bread. After dinner, revelers linger to sip suds and shoot pool or watch wide-screen TVs engage in athletic competition. Patrons can plan ahead for weekly activities such as the Texas Hold ‘Em tournament on Mondays, a beer pong marathon on Tuesdays, karaoke on Wednesdays, and DJ beats on weekends.
Blue Crew Sport Grill is a family-friendly sports grill that lives and breathes the Indianapolis Colts. Fandom colors everything in sight—from a blue-and-white fire truck that doubles as a jungle gym in the parking lot to loads of memorabilia, pictures, and jerseys speckling the eatery’s walls. Three extra-large 1080 HD screens capture big games' pivotal moments, and eight smaller screens allow patrons to check out other division scores or reruns of The Facts of Life before having a serious dinner chat with their kids. Alongside enjoyable brews, a full menu delivers an array of pub-style fare such as crispy fried apps, burgers, and sandwiches stuffed with steak and chicken. Blew Crew also hosts weekly events, such as trivia and Texas hold’em, and if that’s not enough, an on-hand ordained wedding official offers lovebirds a nice place for a white wedding without the hassle of searching for something blue.
First-run movies, including 3-D and family films, light up the screens at Republic Theatre Group, LLC's six locations in Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky. Concession stands attract nostrils and stomachs alike with fragrant popcorn, taste-bud-tickling candy, and canteens of soda.
