"The Best Place for Night-life in Downtown Indy!"
Meridian Street is a section of US-31 that runs directly through downtown Indianapolis. It is a hub of activity nearly anytime, day or night. While parking anywhere on the street can be tricky (parallel parking or expensive parking garages are the only real options), one could spend hours going from restaurant to restaurant, bar to bar. In fact, almost all of downtown's big-name restaurants are located either on Meridian, or within a short distance. Some of these restaurants include Sushi on the Rocks, the Old Spaghetti Factory, and a downtown favorite for pizza, Giorgio's. There are a number of bars scattered along Meridian that cater to nearly any crowd - country, hip-hop, cigar-bar regulars, and more. Meridian goes right through the heart of downtown, snaking around Monument Circle and past the Hilbert theater. Overall, I would recommend the downtown Indy leg of Meridian as a great place to relax, whether a native Hoosier or an out-of-towner.
