The Red Room is a staple of Indianapolis nightlife and one of the premier restaurant and bar venues in Indianapolis. Located in the heart of Broad Ripple, it’s a cult favorite among the college-age crowd. Situated near Butler University, The Red Room provides a perfect option for students and other Broad Ripple residents to relax, unwind, or cut loose on a Friday night after a long week. Depending on your prerogative, all of these options are viable ones when you enter The Red Room.

While a variety of tantalizing appetizers grace the menu at this sophisticated Indianapolis restaurant, most come for the unique signature martinis. As far as atmosphere goes, no big surprise there: the rooms are painted a bold, inviting red. If it gets too hot, you’re welcome to stop out on the balcony overlooking the buzzing streets of Broad Ripple. The view out over the area is nice, but most of the action takes place inside on the dance floor.
