Shelbyville Bars: Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Shelbyville, Indiana is a small town located near Indianapolis. There are a few Shelbyville bars serving the area; they’re popular places for thirsty throats fresh off of taking in all the Shelbyville attractions, Shelbyville events, and other things to do in Shelbyville. Many such bars are located in Shelbyville restaurants like Applebee’s, Fiddlers Three, and Santa Fe Cattle Company.

Most of the bars here are small neighborhood bars with patrons who work at Shelbyville businesses; Willie Farkle’s at 639 S Noble Street and Cob’s Place on 900 Miller Ave are two such bars. These bars are comparable to corner bars in Indianapolis cultural districts and other Indianapolis neighborhoods: not exactly hubs of all night parties or lavish drink menus, but a trusty, reliable place to catch your breath after a long day at work.

However, surprisingly enough, Shelbyville nightlife has one huge ace up its sleeve: Indiana Live Casino. Within this 233,000 square foot structure, there are four Shelbyville bars that rival any top shelf Indianapolis bar. Angels Rock Bar offers a comprehensive drink menu, modern design, and classic and modern rock pumping through the stereo.

The Center Bar at Indiana Live Casino is a hub for Indianapolis music; lots of Indianapolis bands play there during the weekend, including acts like American Cheese, Blonde Sonja, and Sherrie Gold. The fourth bar at Indiana Live Casino is just for Shelbyville sports enthusiasts: the NASCAR Sports Grille. Here, patrons can slug down a beer or two and hoot and holler for their favorite Indianapolis sports teams, including the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, and the Indiana Fever.

Other than Indiana Live Casino, if residents of Shelbyville want to take in a one of a kind bar, they head up to the Circle City for the evening. It’s only a half an hour away, and most bars there are within an easy stumble of one another. Regardless, Shelbyville bars can still quench your thirst and help you pass a long night out on the town; especially if you head up to the glitz and glamor of Indiana Live Casino.
