We ate appetizers outdoors and had beer and wine. Indoors had live jazz and was both modern and homey. Staff was great.

Sat outside with friends and people watched. Shared a few tapas/appetizers with wine and beer. Inside had live music. Modern, yet comfortable area.

On my most recent visit, enjoyed Mimosas on the patio with my daughter before our Mother's Day Brunch. This is the perfect corner to be on a sunny morning or afternoon in downtown Indy. Service was excellent, mimosas were crisp, and location is everything.
