Indiana Live Casino: Modern Hub of Entertainment in Shelbyville

You might think of Shelbyville, Indiana as a small town with not much in the way of entertainment. After all, Indianapolis is only about twenty minutes northwest of this Indiana town, so it only makes sense that residents would simply take in the fun and excitement of Indianapolis nightlife without fostering any of their own.

However, you might be surprised to find out that Shelbyville is home to the Midwest’s largest land-based casino and one of the most modern and exciting entertainment venues you’ll find anywhere: Indiana Live Casino.

This massive, 233,000 square foot entertainment center opened its doors only recently, on March 13 of 2009. Prior to that, the casino had been housed in a temporary, 70,000 square foot building that had been built in just five months. One year, there was no Shelbyville nightlife, and in the next, the sleepy town became party central. Indiana Live Casino has an unthinkable 2,000 games for gambling enthusiasts to experience. Try your luck at one of the 1,800 slot machines, try not to bust at the electronic Blackjack tables, exploit your opponents’ tell at either the three card poker tables or the state of the art, fully automated Poker Room, or cross your fingers and hope your number is called at an electronic roulette table; no matter what your gambling pleasure, you can risk it all at Indiana Live Casino.

However, Indiana Live Casino is far more than a warehouse of slots, poker, and roulette. This is your one stop place for things to do in Shelbyville. There’s no finer example of this than Maker’s Mark Bourbon House and Lounge, located inside Indiana Live Casino. This Shelbyville restaurant is built around the whiskey known the world over, but also features 50 other varieties of bourbon and scotch in addition to whiskeys from around the world. Stop by Maker’s Mark Bourbon House for perfectly cooked seafood or beef, all set in a modern and classy atmosphere. This is a great place to hold Shelbyville events as well, including Shelbyville business meetings or parties.

If you’re looking for a place to party, look no further than Indiana Live Casino. In addition to its gaming room and Maker’s Mark Bourbon House, the casino is also home to no less than four Shelbyville bars: chic, modern bars that can compete with any Indianapolis bar. If you’re looking for something a little moreĀ  classic, head over to Angels Rock Bar, also located inside Indiana Live Casino. This bar is similar to Mosaic, a dubstep bar that used to be inside Indiana Live Casino, except it features classic and modern rock on the state of the art stereo system. Angels Rock Bar is classic and classy, like a sports bar without the cheap beer. Perhaps the biggest bar within Indiana Live Casino is the Center Bar, the hub of everything at the casino. This Shelbyville attraction hosts live Indianapolis music every weekend, boasting such names as American Cheese, Blonde Sonja, and Mike Milligan & Steam Shovel.

For those with Indianapolis sports on the brain, an excellent place to catch all the action is Indiana Live Casino’s NASCAR Sports Grille. Featuring big screen televisions and all the deliciously greasy tailgating food you can handle, visitors can watch the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, and other Indiana sports teams slug it out in the utmost of comfort. The NASCAR Sports Grille also hosts special events from time to time, including live music and radio talk shows.

And if all the slots, poker, blackjack, bars, and dancing arenas aren’t enough for you, Indiana Live Casino is also home to the popular Indiana Downs, a horse racing facility much like Hoosier Park in Anderson, Indiana. Like Indiana Live Casino, Indiana Downs is a brand new, state of the art facility that has all sorts of modern conveniences for today’s horse racing fan. Simulcast races, live races, and a bevy of special events make this a staple of Shelbyville entertainment and an integral part of Indiana Live Casino.
