Stop by Flatwater to get a whole new view on the canal. The folks at Flatwater have built a gorgeous outdoor deck behind the restaurant (and a smaller one out front), where they feature tons of live music whenever weather permits. The patio really shines on Sunday when you can grab a pint or a build-your-own Bloody Mary (made with Hoosier Mama mix) and catch a few healing rays after a wild weekend out. Everything about Flatwater makes it feel like a marina bar in a coastal town: the water, the relaxed vibe, and the outdoor space that’s about double the indoor seating. Grab a plate of pork sliders and see for yourself.
