The Indy business community is well-aware of the appetite one can develop from enjoying this city's many activities. So before heading out for the evening, let the local restaurants, cafes, and assorted dining options keep you fueled for the nighttime fun. Here you'll find plenty of locally owned and chain restaurants, featuring ethnic and international dishes, fine cuisine, and those indispensable fast-food meals for when you're in a hurry. One of the main nightlife sections is in downtown. Some of the popular places to eat here include Elements, R. Bistro, Taste Café and Marketplace, or at St. Elmo Steak House, all of which specialize in American regional dishes. For more eclectic offerings, travel 15 minutes north of downtown to the artsy Broad Ripple Village. Here you'll find a mix of bistros, boutiques, and other shops and eateries, including Indian food at Shalimar. After some great food, you're ready for Indy's top-notch night spots. The Chatterbox Tavern in downtown features live jazz most nights of the week. For blues, you can't beat the historic Slippery Noodle Inn, a bar established more than 150 years ago. At Broad Ripple, you can dance to rock music at the Rock Lobster club or enjoy some jazz at the Jazz Kitchen. Whether fast and loud or slow and quiet, you'll find it in Indianapolis.
