The NFL is in da house! The Indianapolis Colts Grille in downtown Indianapolis is the first ever NFL team branded sports restaurant. This state-of-the-art high-end sports bar/restaurant has all the “bells & whistles” imaginable in a great sports bar.
Let’s start with a state-of-the-art audio-visual presentation which includes 66 high-definition TVs from 52- to 65-inch flat screens and two 100-inch high-def projection screens that cover the 10,000-square-foot restaurant with the best sports viewing anywhere (please see attached file on entertainment), these TVs along with Martin Mania Intelligent Lighting placed throughout the restaurant and bar allows us to accentuate any sporting event and replicate a dynamic, energy filled stadium like experience. Our foldable, glass, nana-walls that we import from Germany allows us to sub-divide the space into five separate sound zones allowing us to offer multiple sporting events to multiple fan bases all at the same time.
Our menu offers over 70 awesome choices that are both familiar and unique and great for lunch or dinner even without a game (see menu attached).
Our bar offers 32 (one for every NFL team) draft beers, 32 bottled beers, 32 unique martini’s & specialty drinks, 32 bottles and 32 glasses of wine.
Our décor is dynamic yet comfortable, wood & brick is used through-out the space to give it a warm & friendly feeling yet it is gender-neutral in design so that all groups see the venue as a place they can enjoy seven days a week. The venue also offers fun elements like our famous one-way mirror over the men’s urinals that ensures you don’t miss a minute of any game or the crowd reaction!
Great entertainment, great service, great food and great beverage are the cornerstone of our success and whether the Colts are winning or not the Indianapolis Colts Grille always provides a winning sports experience for sports fans of every team and every sport.
To be told by Jim Irsay (Colts owner) and the COO Pete Ward that the Colts Grille exceeds theirs & the NFL’s expectations & standards is a major compliment. The grille can only be fully appreciated when experienced...see you soon!
