Kelly’s Grille: You should always start the week with pizza and poker night. It’s a good way to meet new people and a good indicator of how the rest of your week is going to go.
The Chatterbox: Wine and jazz are always excellent stress relievers, and the Chatterbox has some of the best in town.
The Upper Room (above the Broad Ripple Steakhouse): This is the best place to bring a friend and catch local talent in an informal, intimate setting.
Birdy’s Bar & Grill: Great music, great stage, great drink prices. One of my favorite venues.
Radio Radio: Fountain Square is always fun. Grab some food, bowl and then check out up-and-coming local and regional acts.
Joe’s Grille 2: Quickly becoming the premier spot for live music on the Northeastside, it has plenty of space, good acoustics, a decent crowd and consistently great entertainment.
Claude and Annie’s (Fishers): It’s always good to catch Sunday sports close to home in a place where everybody knows your name. The venue has the best chicken wings in town, and you can’t beat a 32-ounce beer for under four bucks.
