The Mousetrap is one of Indianapolis Indiana’s oldest north side watering holes. Since 1957 we’ve been slinging strong drinks and serving up great food. In the early 70â€²s 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 120â€³ and a 140â€³ 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 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.
On Tuesdays, we even have a “Cash Payout Poker tourney”. 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 Midwest, 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. Every Wednesday Adam Catron of The Twin Cats and Josh Oldham of Front Porch Swingers host a Family Jam featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the city. On Thursdays INDY MOJO/ G9 Collective present Altered Thurzdaze!..dubstep, broken beats, etc. from all over the country. And, of course, every Friday and Saturday we have the best music in the city! The word is out! Come see for yourself.
