Sports Bars

Due to COVID 19, we encourage you to check the status of any Indianapolis establishment prior to visiting.

We take sports very seriously here in Indianapolis. From the best TV displays to the tastiest wings, here’s our guide to Indy’s top sports bars to watch a game, race, and everything in between.

Chatham Tap is a neighborhood English pub in the heart of the arts and theatre district. Typically an English-style soccer bar, Chatham Tap has sports viewing parties down pat. If you’re looking for a more intimate setting, Chatham Tap is the place to be.

Kilroy’s is not for the faint of heart. With a chalkboard menu of signature, pitcher-sized drinks and an insane amount of flat screen TVs, Kilroy’s provides the perfect ambiance to get loud and rowdy. When you’re ordering, don’t forget the two most important words: stuffed breadsticks.

High Velocity at the JW Marriott is a high-tech, chic sports bar. Enjoy quality food and beverages while you watch your game on an incredible multi-dimensional media wall, a sports ticker, or with private high-definition TVs.


Located right in heart of downtown, you can watch your favorite games in the epicenter of Indy, one of the greatest sporting cities in the country. An extensive menu of American fare and drink specials make this spot a haven for sports fans.
