Tavern at the Point is a friendly neighborhood tavern with a pub style menu and a full service bar selection of beer, wine, spirits, and cocktails.
Patti and Chic Perrin took over Old Point Tavern in 1990 from James Newlin who operated the 401 Mass Ave corner bar since 1954. The bar itself dates back to 1887 when the location’s first liquor license was obtained. Old Point Tavern was the second oldest bar in Indianapolis after Slippery Noodle on Illinois and South.
Nachos and half pints, laughing guests and full bowls of chili brought locals and visitors to the authentic tavern experience. Nostalgia and stories kept the corner space a favorite of Indianapolis’ bar scene alive for many years.
When the Perrins decided it was time to retire, they went to Cunningham Restaurant Group to pass on the baton of the iconic corner of hospitality. “It’s bittersweet, but we’re super excited about the Cunningham Group” Patti Perrin told Indy Star in the announcement in January 2018.

    First time visiting. We all tired different items. Naked and spicy margaritas were fantastic. Loved brisket tacos and open face quesadillas. Thumbs up for fish tacos. Spicy chicken sandwich with fries also nice. No complaints snd service was fantastic. Sat outside. Great late lunch. 100% be back

    We went there before the Pacers / Lakers game. The meal was perfect and the service was excellent, as usual. This is becoming our go to place when on Mass Ave.

    Brisket nachos are a must try! So delicious. Our server, Regan, was very attentive and friendly. We are on the patio on a warm March evening, place was busy due to St. Patrick’s day weekend. But the patio was perfect, quieter and good for people watching. Had fish tacos and brisket tacos for dinner, delicious. Ask for salsa verde to go with fish tacos. The blood orange sparkler cocktail is so good!

    Overpriced. Brisket tacos were really bad. Wings were just ok. Drinks were good. Just all around odd vibe.
