Tavern at the Point
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.
Chicken sandwiches were outstanding along with great service. Very good craft beer selection. Overall, great meal.
Food is very good but not off the chart - its the service and value for the area that is so impressive. Late night food menu is just what you need with appetizer 1/2 off after 9pm. So have that last drink and a app before you head to the house!
Overall this place was great! MUST GET THE BRISKET NACHOS! The service was great! The only negative is the place is not that big! 😊 Definitely pay for what you get!
Limited menu but good
Don't miss the Cauliflower Wings! They are fabulous. Great, friendly service. Can't wait to go back.
