This Indianapolis bar, dance club, and concert venue was opened in June of 1938 as a movie theater. It was a prominent Midwest movie house for three years before closing down. It then reopened in 1977 with a different breed of films. The Vogue became known for its showings of X-rated films and even ran the cult classic Deep Throat.

As the times changed, The Vogue has most certainly adapted. Today, it has morphed into a well-known dance club and hosts musicians from all over the country. The famous singers and bands that have taken the stage cannot be listed in their entirety, but it should be noted that Bo Diddley, The White Stripes, Johnny Cash, The Dave Matthews Band, and Bob Weir and Mickey Hart (of The Grateful Dead) have walked through the back entrance of Indianapolis‘ premier nightclub.
