Mug Shots Cafe: Broad Ripple’s Best Biker Bar

Given the title of Best Biker Bar in Indy by Nuvo Magazine this bar is decked out with cheap Christmas lights and card tables and chairs. It carries a tough but somehow happy vibe, and seems to attract a lot of tough but happy people.

Mug Shots offers live music in Indianapolis every Saturday and ‘Karaoke with Norm’ on Wednesdays.  It is a small-town bar with a delicious tenderloin known by many Indianapolis residents.  The live and background music style is country, classic rock and a bit of punk.  Six large televisions also make it a great venue to watch your favorite Indianapolis sports event.

Mug Shots Cafe is located in one of the famous cultural districts of Indianapolis, a section called Broad Ripple Village. This neighborhood is considered one of the trendiest in the Circle City, and attracts a young and vibrant energy.

Mug  Shots has been around a while, and its fans consider it one of the best bars in Indianapolis. In fact, many visit Mug Shots from other cities in Indiana and beyond. The cafe was at one time called The Steel Pony, then, before it arrived at its present name, it was known as The Stone Mug. Any night of the week, you can enjoy some fun Indianapolis nightlife at Mug Shots, where the drinks are stiff and fairly priced, the people are friendly and the jukebox actually plays songs you want to hear.
