No. 10 – Wellington Pub

Best Hideaway

Surrounded by the noise of Broad Ripple, this snug little watering hole is as authentic an English pub as you’ll find this side of the pond. Upstairs, patrons vie for the handful of tables near the fireplace to chat. Downstairs, they take in live bluegrass music. There are plenty of other holes-in-the-wall in Indy, and you can’t throw a dart (another Wellington pastime) without hitting a corporate bar marketing itself as a British-themed pub. But the leaded glass and woodwork here make most of those other places seem like a trip to the loo.
