If you’ve been around downtown Indy lately, you may have noticed a lot of new businesses popping up.

From restaurants to electric bikes and everything in between, there’s plenty of new places to try on your next outing.

Now open

If there’s one thing we love even more than looking ahead to the future, it’s enjoying the present at one of Indy’s newest spots. Check out this list of recently opened establishments.

Dining
Nowhere Special Cocktail Lounge | 608 Mass Ave. | Opened June 11, 2023 | The former Libertine Bar spot is owned by the same people behind Ambrosia, Bocca + The Commodore. The new lounge focuses on gin, tequila, and whiskey drinks with a sommelier-curated wine selection and non-alcoholic options.

The English | 5380 N College Ave. | Opened March 31, 2023 | This cocktail lounge across the street from Jazz Kitchen focuses on tequila, bourbon, and champagne with a food menu that includes salmon, steak bites, and charcuterie boards. Pro tip: This is in the same building as The Bulldog — head to the back.

The Quarter | 925 E. Westfield Blvd. | Opened March 2023 | This new dining spot in the heart of Broad Ripple offers a traditional New Orleans cocktail experience with southern-style eats. Pro tip: The patio is dog-friendly + visit on a Tuesday from 7 to 9 p.m. to play Singo (AKA music bingo).

Retail
Digs Garden Center | 1302 Columbia Ave. | Opened April 2023 | Downtown Indy’s only garden center is open right around the corner from North Mass Boulder. You can shop flowering perennials, shrubs, trees, mulch, compost, veggies + supplies while you take in the peaceful atmosphere.

Coming soon

Every time we look around, it seems like something new is popping up in Indy. Whether you’re looking for a new drink destination or your next go-to spot for a new hairdo, we’re rounding up a few things coming soon to the Circle City this quarter.

Dining
A Cup of Chai | 1028 Shelby St. | Saturday, July 14 | The new chai cafe located in Fountain Square will feature authentic Indian drinks and snacks. It’s also still looking to hire team members. Those interested can send an email with their resume.

Memento Zero Proof | 8701 E, 116th St., Ste, 145, Fishers | September 2023 | This non-alcoholic cocktail bar claims to be the first of its kind in central Indiana.
