Happy Hour: Spoke & Steele, Louie's Wine Dive, And More

Where and what you’ll find us drinking this week.

Saddle up to the bar at Bakersfield (334 Mass Ave., 317-635-6962) for a Breckenridge Agave Wheat ($5) that accompanies a rotating tap from Three Floyds as well as classic local mainstays.
Cool off from these unseasonably hot temperatures inside Spoke & Steele (123 S. Illinois St., 317-737-1616), where the Bee’s Knees, a potent mix of gin, lemon, and honey will surely help you unwind.

The Earl of Indy at Louie’s Wine Dive (701 Broad Ripple Ave., 317-722-0140) is a bracing autumn-appropriate blend of Tanner’s Creek bourbon, fresh muddled ginger, and Earl Grey bitters with a sprig of fresh rosemary. Good for what ails you.

Delicia (5215 N College Ave., 317-925-0677) gives your palate a spicy, yet refreshing kick with their signature Fire ‘N Ice cocktail: jalapeño-infused reposado tequila, hibiscus/basil/habanero reduction, and tres chiles ice ball.

One last hurrah for summertime! A tasty (and most definitely boozy) milkshake from Rebar Indy (20 N. Delaware St., 317-685-5100). The Big Lebowski has vanilla ice cream, Kahlúa, vodka, and a malted milk ball. Abide while you imbibe.
