About The Vogue
The Vogue opened in Broad Ripple 1938 originally as one of the premier movie houses of the Midwest and was even an adult movie theater during the 70’s. It has since become the neighborhood’s best nightclub spot for dancing, drinking and catching live music. This place is always a good bet for solid concerts. A hot pick for bands that aren't quite able to sell out Banker’s Life or Klipsch always ensures that the house is packed and tickets go fast. The Vogue is an obvious Indianapolis icon for live music and has also become a staple for lovers of great cover bands, which come through the venue often. Tickets to a show sell out? You can always grab a latte from Hubbard and Cravens across the street and listen to what comes out the stage doors, or meet up with the band afterward at Vogue performer favorite, the Alley Cat.
