Love the vibe in this tiny, darkly lit spot in Meridian Kessler. Feels that you are transported to another, bigger city – say, Chicago or New York. The drinks are fantastic, and if I have any quibble about the menu, it's that I often want twice as much of some courses. Reliably delicious, thoughtful food, with exceptional, tailored service. The vinyl collection is top-notch, and the tandem restaurant/listening room setting also serves to set this spot apart from the herd in Indy's dining scene. Grateful for Bar One Fourteen.

It's like a secret place that is designed for the most intimate and perfect setting for a fabulous meal. The music selection is eclectic to say the least and the food! Ah the food!! Inventive and delicious. The sous vide prepared short ribs were truly better than any steak of any kind that I can remember ever having!!

We will definitely be back. A tremendous meal and wine pairing for valentine's day / my husband's bday.
The short-ribs were INSANE.

Not our first time here but that in itself should say a lot. Indy has a great food scene and the amount of great places usually out weigh the amount of dinners you can plan. 114 is different, it’s dark, intimate, above the norm. Mixology is above the bar along with the menu. An experience along with a great meal. Yes, we’ll do it again.

Truly unique dining experience! Anyone passionate about food and music will love this place. Very intimate, very dark. Music at just the right volume. Belle, our server, was wonderful; attentive and enthusiastic about the food, drinks, music, and also about the very interesting antique glass and dinnerware. I highly recommend.

$28 for a very small burger. $14 for potato chips and dip. $18 for one of only three red wines to choose from. Making reservations 1 month in advance and paying a deposit to make sure we came to the “listening room” that according to legend used to allow the patrons to peruse the music library and make their own selections and now mandates that one of the servers picks her selections : priceless.

I dined here with a girlfriend on Saturday night. The food was delicious. Moreover, the music selection made my night. The listening experience was part of why we had wanted to try this restaurant out. I’ll note that it is fairly dark inside, and the music is played rather loudly - just be aware if that’s not your thing. I’m looking forward to coming back with my fiancé because it seems like the perfect date night spot.

Nice cozy bar with excellent drinks, limited food selection. Must make a reservation at least a week or more in advance. Was a little upset our table wasn't ready for 20 min after our reservation. But excellent service otherwise.

Went in with very high expectations and they blew us away. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and it couldn’t have been better. We are wine drinkers and were nervous by the limited selection but the quality more than made up for it. Food was creative and simply outstanding. Server could not have been more accommodating and friendly. The atmosphere was terrific, music was excellent Highly recommend.

The truffle burger could have been the best burg I’ve ever had, and that’s not an exaggeration. Very good cocktails, professional and experienced staff, overall had a great experience. Will eat there again (hopefully sooner rather than later).

Very cool space with a special feel and nice music, spanning from classic jazz to rap.
The limited menu is quite inclusive of most palates, focusing on elemental flavors and fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Service is superb. Although you have a server, everyone there is available to all and very pleasant. We look forward to returning soon to taste the chef’s next series of creations. A unique but very repeatable experience.

This was our first time to Bar 114. What a delight! We were enthralled by the dark ambience with fantastic audio sound. The drinks were interesting and delicious, particularly the Paper Plane bourbon inspired cocktail. The food was inventive and tasty. We highly recommend the crudité starter, which is the most sophisticated take on veggies imaginable. The Potato pave and the lobster tail were also winners.
This bar/restaurant is unique and wonderful. It is somewhat surprising to find it in Indianspolis. Chicago would be a more likely location. The service was excellent and helpful. This is a great date night place.
We will definitely be back.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in town! It’s not for everyone and that’s a good thing since they only have a few tables. I highly recommend reservations! If you like music and great food then you will love Bar One Fourteen also.
