Blues Bars

Slippery Noodle Inn

INDIANA'S OLDEST BAR and Blues Club is the Slippery Noodle Inn, 372 S. Meridian Street Indianapolis, IN 46225 317-631-6968. It has a diner for lunches and two stages for entertainment. If you are into blues, and live in this area, you've probably already visited this fine establishment. If not, it comes highly recommended as a nearby venue to see first-class national and local blues performers.

Stevie Ray's Bar

The bar named after the greatest guitar player in memory is located at 230 East Main Street in Louisville, KY. I had occasion to attend the grand opening with a friend a few years ago. Entertainment now includes other types of music, but this bar is still a good place to hear the blues. Cover is only a few bucks, drinks are reasonable, and the sound system is better than your average blues bar. Out back, there is a voodoo garden for when the main room is at capacity. Check this place out. It's worth the drive.
Also worth mentioning are:
The Rudyard Kipling, 422 West Oak Street, Louisville, KY, (502) 636-1311 and
Gerstle's, 3801 Frankfort Avenue, Louisville, KY, (502) 899-3609 .
