  • Tavern on South
    On the second-story balcony of a century-old brick building, diners at Tavern On South find their meals illuminated by a blend of moonlight and the glowing Indianapolis skyline. The tavern might also be within walking distance of Lucas Oil Stadium?100 feet, to be exact?but its upscale ambiance and seasonal menu subverts what you'd expect from your typical sports bar. A Dining Room with a View As noted by Indianapolis Monthly in 2011, the interior's wooden accents and iconic photos of the city "lend the tavern a timeless patina." It's a somewhat modern, toned-down take on a typical pub look, with granite bartops and exposed brick. When the weather's balmy, a meal on the patio offers unmatched views of the skyline. Exquisite Ingredients Seasonal ingredients and creative flavors give Tavern on South's traditional offerings unexpected twists. Buffalo wings are made from Maple Leaf Farms duck rather than chicken, and hefty burgers are crafted from house-smoked bison. Even the meatloaf is made from prime rib. Craft Beer and Cocktails At the bar, the craft beers on draft change with what's available from local breweries, but patrons can also find favorites from Flat 12 and Sun King Osiris by the bottle. The tavern's habit of bucking tradition also carries over to signature cocktails, such as the Cucumber Collins and a mai tai made with spiced rum.
