Discover the best of Indianapolis' chefs and artisan craftsmen in new modern market
Bottleworks District is kicking off the new year in a big way with the official opening of The Garage Food Hall on January 5. The city’s first food hall and community-focused marketplace offers Indianapolis-area residents and travelers alike the opportunity to delight in the food and wares from local chefs and artisans in a lively, welcoming atmosphere.
Aptly named, The Garage Food Hall occupies two of the historic Coca-Cola bottling plant’s original garage buildings, just steps from the 139-key Bottleworks Hotel, which opened December 15. Akin to the hotel, The Garage sports masterfully restored Art Deco terra-cotta facades and design features that pay homage to the District’s rich history. More than 20 independently owned local and regional food vendors will take up residence in the 38,000-square-foot marketplace, offering a variety of culinary styles and flavors.
Visitors hungry for experiences can enjoy the following food, beverage and retail vendor line-up behind The Garage’s roll-up doors on January 5:
Azucar Morena: traditional Venezuelan fare making its debut at The Garage;
Abbiocco Pizzeria: pizza and pastas made fresh to order;
Clancy's Hamburgers: a menu with a 60’s diner feel;
Gaucho's Fire: a mix of flavors from different regions and cultures throughout Brazil;
Hard Truth Distillery: cocktail bar offering signature cocktails with a significant twist;
HercuLean Meal Prep: takes fast and easy meal prep to a whole new level;
J’s Lobster & Fish Market: signature lobster rolls and savory sides;
La Chinita Poblana: Asian-fusion taqueria;

Becker Supply Co.: plants a tree for every purchase made of the clothing or personal care items;
