Tavern dining provides hearty fare, frosty drinks, and a backdrop of bawdy tales told by a group of aged pilgrims wearing matching sports jerseys. Begin your own voyage of epic gustation with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of tavern dining and drinks at The Slippery Noodle Inn, located on Meridian Street.

The Slippery Noodle is Indiana's oldest bar in continuous operation, providing a massive menu of classic tavern fare. Jump-start a meal with a sample platter ($11.99) of four buffalo wings, three mozzarella sticks, and four chicken strips with marinara and ranch dipping sauces. Or dine in musical style with a blues burger ($9.49), a half-pound Black Angus beef patty crowned with sautéed onions, green peppers, mushrooms, bacon, and a choice of cheese. A hefty plate of Southern-style pork barbecue ($13.99) may trigger sudden regional-dialect shifts with tender mouthfuls of simmered pulled pork in a sweet, slightly smoky barbecue sauce. Wash it all down with a domestic draft beer for $4.50 or an imported bottle of Red Stripe for $5, taking care to clink bottle or cup with your dining companion, whether a friend, loved one, or Winston Churchill impersonator.

Founded in 1850, the Slippery Noodle Inn features a spectacular pressed-tin ceiling, 'tiger oak' bar and back bar, and diverse history, including a period where it served as a way station for the Underground Railroad. Currently, the Noodle hosts live blues seven nights a week as it obliterates hunger with savory fare. Stop in to experience this historic bar for yourself, which is much easier and more pleasant than constructing an elaborate time machine and accidentally getting stranded in the primordial future-past with only a race of reverse-mermaids to keep you company.

You must be 21 or older to use this Groupon. Not valid with other offers or drink specials. Valid for dine-in only. Cover charges may apply if arriving after the music starts.

Historic bar, great music and atmosphere - one of our favorite Indy spots to hook up with friends and dance, or just sit back and sip a drink to some wonderful blues!
