And the locals smile.
Slippery Noodle Inn is the oldest bar in Indiana. Although it’s been called many names in its time, it’s been in this building since 1850. It’s listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
All Hoosiers would do well to spend at least one evening at the Slippery Noodle Inn.
Where I spent the winter weekends of 1995. I’ve been there plenty.
My nephew was recently initiated into the splendor of what may well be the happiest bar ever. Not only patrons, but staff always seem to be having a good time, too. It’s got good vibes.
This joint is jumpin. Live blues DAILY. Many places in Indy are hyped-up as essential to tourism, but this one is beloved by locals as well.
On Slippery Noodle Inn’s site, one can read about famous guests and musicians, the slaughterhouse, its part in Prohibition, the Underground Railroad, and what crimes may still haunt it. In addition to food and drinks, they sell music and memorabilia. They offer a virtual tour, free photos and logos (like my header) and best of all, seemingly unending hospitality and generosity of spirit.
Also, many doors.
