Downtown Olly’s Restaurant and Bar

Downtown Olly’s, interestingly, is named after a stuffed deer head, mounted on one of the interior walls. This tidbit alone certainly sets the place apart from anything else you’ll find in Indianapolis.

Open 24 hours on the weekends, and accompanied by a kitchen that, unlike most Indianapolis restaurants, never closes, it’s a great place to always find a meal no matter what time it is, and perfect when all the other bars are closed.


Favorites like pizza and oysters are on Olly’s menu, but there are numerous home-cooked meals to tempt you. Try the delicious, tender pot roast with creamy mashed potatoes, or their pan-seared rib eye steak, cooked just the way you like it. There are also salads galore and tons of great appetizers, like Olly’s Chili Cheese Nachos, Sloppy Fries and Poppers.

Though Downtown Olly’s Restaurant and Bar includes the word “restaurant” in its name, and though they do have a great comfort food menu, its atmosphere definitely fits the Indianapolis bars category best. There are lots of great places to enjoy Indianapolis nightlife in bustling downtown Indianapolis, and Olly’s nabs its fair share of fans, for lots of good reasons. They have an actual darts league at Olly’s, and Karaoke on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Along with some shockingly low drink prices, Olly’s manages to serve up frequent specials almost every day of the week.

Feeling nostalgic for that friendly old neighborhood bar you left back home? Looking for a good meal at all hours of the day or night? Or just a change of pace? Check out Downtown Olly’s Restaurant and Bar. A good time will be had by all.
