1 of the Most Haunted Place in Indianapolis

This is a great little place to visit if you're into the's where they cater to REAL spirits!

You can even call management & ask for a personal tour, or, they may even allow you to make arrangements to perform your own paranormal investigation. I don't know if they will for sure, but they have done that before, because it's been reported in local newspapers in years gone by...especially around Halloween.

Also, they may charge for allowing the investigation. If so, I've heard it was well worth it. Since the place is so small it makes it easy to set-up equipment, or great for new-comers into paranormal investigating, and also great for small PI groups.

The upstairs is said to be where most hauntings take place. I can't remember if it has a basement, but not a bad place to go.

As far as a business it's a very smooth, relaxed, atmosphere. A lot of yuppies & groupies, but it's just the usual fitting for most of dwntwn Indy bars & saloons. The dim lighting makes it feel warm, comfy, & inviting.

Inviting various musical artists from local or all throughout Indiana is a real plus! It's a real treat for a great night out where you don't have to be too dressy, or too dressed down. Come in as you are with your date, & you'll fit-in just fine.

Amazing music and atmosphere

I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Great bar, if it's not the weekend

I can't sit here and recommend the Noodle on the weekend. Can't do it. If you've never been there and you're from out of town, by all means, go pack yourself in there and feel hip. If you want to hang out and relax? Visit there on an off night, you'll thank me later.

Good Drink Prices and alot of FUN

This place has it all. It has the Blues and every other kind of band just depending in what room you are in. It is a great place to hang before a colts game. But the Food is great!! Try the nachos

Smoky, but Great for Live Music

SNI is def. a great spot for Live Music (although it gets very smoky)! Usually there is a $5 cover for nights when there is music; but if you were dining in before they start charging at the door, you can get around that! Definitely the place to go on Thursdays, half price drinks! Not a great place to eat dinner with a large group; we once went with about 15 others, and they did not separate the check at all (they said we would have had to tell them far in advance). This can be very difficult for people who don't regularly carry cash, but there was an on-site ATM!

touristy, but a good time at a cool venue

This is one of those must-visit staples in Indy, but there is a reason for that. There are three rooms in this club, one straight-ahead bar and two rooms for live music of different sizes. There's also a dining area as well. Check out the open-mike night, is one of the best of its kind that I have ever seen.

This place is a must if you like live music and a laid back atmosphere. My boyfriend and I went to Indy for the weekend and everyone recommended this place. It was pretty crowded but no one was rude and the staff was friendly as well. Would definately go back if I ever found myself in Indy again!

The best times happen at the Noodle

The environment is always happening, the people are fun and friendly, the staff is great, and the bar itself has so much character! I drive 150 miles oneway to go every few weeks!
