The quality has taken a sudden drop. The menu makes some bold offerings, but it's small enough that there's a fair chance nothing on there will sound appealing to you if you're planning on dinner there. The cocktails and wine/beer list are still on point, so it's a killer early evening spot (but who makes reservations for those kinds of things?)

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Fancy AF burger is still on the menu, but they've changed the cheese and now goat cheese is the only option. Unfortunate AF.

Thanks for your feedback. We strive to offer an edited menu that will appeal to any and all. IMPORTANT NOTE: we have not changed the cheese on the Fancy AF Burger or the Fancy AF Burger with Truffles. It has always been Malvarosa - a Spanish Sheep's Milk cheese.

Phenomenal service with complex and incredibly flavored cocktails all while cocooned in an intimate and unique backdrop that highlights the entire experience. A new Indy highlight that is not to be missed.

This place was very overrated in my opinion. Was expecting it to be delicious based on all the hype. We ordered 3 dishes - the soft scrambed egg with caviar, the potato pave, and the fancy AF burger. All three only tasted like salt and butter. Couldn't taste anything else. Also, I appreciated the music but it was so loud I couldn't even hear the waiter...and I'm 27 so my hearing is still pretty top notch. Was disappointed to say the least.

This is a really great foodie special occasion dining experience. I recently took a friend here for her birthday and she loved it. People should be forewarned that it is a state-of-the-art listening room and they play vinyl so it is kind of loud. And dark. But the service and the food are exceptional and you go in knowing about the atmosphere. It's great for two people it's really harder for larger groups to converse so I don't recommend that. I will be back again and again but only as part of a pair.

My wife and I reserved a table for two to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary and perhaps had one of the best date nights in our 12+ years together. The setting was intimate and dark, gritty vinyl beats from The Fugees filled the listening room, which made the mood vibrant and energized. With glasses of champagne flowing and perfectly suggested small plates coming in rotation, the only thing we were left wanting was for more time within the walls of Bar One Fourteen - which we fulfilled by savoring a last round of delightful desserts. 5 stars, easily. Surprise your spouse or significant other with this spot - you won't regret it. #lovewhoyoulove

Daimien was one of the best bartenders we've ever experienced! He was very knowledgable! He made cocktails that I typically don't order, but ended up loving! 10/10, I've been recommending this place to everyone.

Great overall experience! This is one of those places where you’re not only paying for a well planned and perfectly executed menu but also an ambience that is unique compared to any other eatery in Indy. The food was outstanding. We both had the Fancy AF burger with truffles which was worth the price. We will definitely be coming again and recommending Bar One Fourteen to our friends.

I would definitely recommend Bar One Fourteen to certain friends, but not to everyone. Its fabulous cocktails and food are worth making a reservation. The ambiance - very small, cozy, dark, with moderately loud (and very cool) music - makes for a unique experience. We very much enjoyed our date night there!

Food was good, atmosphere was unique. We had a 6:30 reservation and arrived at 6:29- ordered a cocktail and bottle of wine and about 75% of the food menu. Unfortunately when we ordered an after dinner cocktail at 8:00 we were told there was another reservation and we would need to leave the restaurant for their sister Napolese. What?! An end time for a reservation in a place that bills itself as a “listening room”? I can’t recommend this experience.

I have not had a bad experience or meal at Bar114. The menu may be small but is focused on creativity with an emphasis on flavor. The ambience is wonderful for a date night and listening to vinyl makes the evening complete. This is one of our go-to’s in Indy - you should make it yours.

Third visit punctuated by unexpected disappointment. Poorly managed reservation system with a subsequent one hour plus wait. For a policy of charging guests $50/pp for being late or no showing on a reservation there was no attempt to rectify making guests wait over an hour in the closed portion of their neighboring Napolese. Often a fantastic small bite menu with never miss cocktails the music was too loud to converse and the dim lighting has been replaced removing any unique quality to the setting. An unfortunate and unanticipated miss for the Patachou brand in all regards, but most notably service and ambience.

I love this place and this was my third visit. I was excited to take my family there (including one visiting from out of town.) However, my guests didn't feel the same. The music was TOO loud this time, it seemed much louder than my previous two visits. The DJ was accommodating and did turn down the music for a bit, however, it went right back up again after a while and it was VERY difficult to carry on a conversation. For the price point of the food, you HAVE to be responsive to what customers want...and keep the music at a "conversation level." Thanks and keep up the good (food) work and EXCELLENT service (thank you Amelia! you absolutely ROCK) but turn the music DOWN to a level where people can hear one another. Thank you!

Wow! We cannot say good enough things enough Bar One Fourteen. Our waitress was phenomenal and walked us through all of their cocktail options as well as gave us recommendations based on our food selections. The music was groovy and the Truffle Burger was to die for. I really would drive to Indy every night of the week for that burger. It is the kind of burger that you really never want to stop eating for the rest of your life. And this is coming from self proclaimed burger expert. So basically what I’m trying to say is you need to go to this place ASAP - you won’t regret it.

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!!
