The Beacon of Broad Ripple

The Vogue, located in the Broad Ripple neighborhood of Indianapolis, is one of the most popular and storied (21+ only) music venues in the Midwest. The Vogue originally opened as a movie theater on June 18, 1938, and today is considered the top destination for live music in Indianapolis, winning countless awards and earning the accolades of local musicians, industry leading DJ’s, and nationally touring artists.


A Focus on Artists

After an early run as a movie theater, on December 31, 1977, The Vogue opened as a nightclub and concert venue. Since that transition in the late 70’s, The Vogue has continuously been considered the top nightspot in Indianapolis. Many great bands and artists have performed here over the past 25 years including Warren Zevon, Bo Diddley, Willie Nelson, The Ramones, John Hiatt, Blondie, Johnny Cash, and Bonnie Raitt.  To see a list of our favorites, check out our Artists page.
