About this Venue

The Mousetrap


The Mousetrap is one of Indy’s oldest north side watering holes. Since 1957 we’ve been slinging strong drinks and serving up great food. In the early 70′s we began serving our famous beef stew and the same people come back time after time for another super hot helping.

In recent years we’ve added lots of TVs (20+), huge 120″ and a 140″ Hi-def big screens, new windows, carpet and an overall make-over. The stew was brought back to it’s original recipe and the rest of the menu was revamped.

We now offer Huge Wings, Hand Patted Burgers, Fresh Breaded Tenderloins, Pizza and a *Healthy Menu* as well as homemade daily specials such as Kandas Famous Meatloaf or Chicken Salad and Jess’ Homemade Soups. With 5 pool tables, video games, dart boards and dozens of board games, there is always something to do.

Most importantly, we brought in live original music. Concentrating on jam bands, we have played host to numerous up and coming bands from around the country, as well as many that are already very well established.

This place has a vibe and soul that’s electric. Bands can’t wait to come back and there are always more fans to greet them at their next show.

**Sundays- Enjoy a Bloody Mary w/ some Bluegrass. Flatland Harmony Experiment hosts an open session of kick-ass Bluegrass. In warm weather, we even jam out on the deck as we grill out. Yes, Sunday Funday indeed. Bring your instrument or voice and join in. (no drums please)

**Mondays- Indy's Live Trivia hosts a musically inclined live trivia game for teams or individuals w/ cash payouts! Bring your friends in to see how much useless info is stored up in that melon.

**Tuesdays- “Bourbon For The Brain- Jazz For The Soul” —-Nicholas Gerlach heads up an all-star cast of Indy’s best musicians for a raucous night of Jazz, Soul and Rye. And we taste some great bourbons and whiskeys, with a new feature weekly.

** Wednesdays- Adam Catron of The Twin Cats, Max Allen of MAB and Josh Oldham of Acoustic Flyer (among others) host a Family Jam featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the city in a freestyle format.

**Thursdays- INDY MOJO/ G9 Collective present Altered Thurzdaze!..electronic, dubstep, broken beats, etc. from all over the country. We literally have to tighten all the light bulbs in the house before each show.

** And, of course, every Friday and Saturday we have the best Jam Bands around putting on the best live shows in the city!

The word is out! Come see for yourself.
