Audience Testimonials

"Excellent is an understatement. It was truly memorable."

"Great job and LOVE the setting!!! Perfectly intimate venue."

"I appreciate the personal contact The Cabaret staff dedicates to all 130-some people in the venue.  It feels very haute, very exclusive, and it's very rare!"

"Awesome venue!! I tell everyone I know about The Cabaret and encourage them to see a show."

"Best in Class. A truly delightful experience over the top."

"The Cabaret is such a fit for the venue, the class, and the entertainment ranges from classically Broadway to edgy Janis Joplin and I love it!!!!"

"Thanks for bringing the world to Indy. Remarkable and delightful experience."

"I think the opportunity to hear professionals from all over the country is a gift that The Cabaret brings to Indy and it has never been before. So, thank you!"

"The Cabaret and the Columbia Club are a perfect match.  The venue is intimate and incredibly beautiful.  We are always thrilled when the draperies are open and we can look at the Circle while watching a fabulous performance.  The first event this year was stellar.  Sam Harris gave all of himself - his rich vocals and wacky sense of humor.  What a start.  Each year the schedule gets more and more enticing.  We are disappointed to miss a few performances when we are away from Indy.  Although Broadway and jazz are my favorites, we find each entertainer brings something unique and especially enjoyable to your star-filled roster.  Thanks to you and Shannon for creating and administering this wonderful opportunity for Indy."

Performer Testimonials

“I travel a lot. I see a lot of venues and a lot of promoters, hotels and audiences. Everything about my experience at The Columbia Club was spectacular. From the attention to show detail and the hands-on personal care to the gorgeous, historical venue to the amazing packed house – it was a thrill from beginning to end. This is the way it should always be!”   
   - Sam Harris

"Wow! The Cabaret at The Columbia Club is one of the best nightclubs in the world!  From the glorious cabaret room to the joyous audiences to the great food, this is the perfect cabaret experience for everyone!  Including this singer!  Thank you, Shannon!  You and your staff make this a uniquely wonderful experience! Please have me back soon!"

"The Cabaret at the Columbia Club was the most picture perfect example of what an evening of song should be for both the performer and the patron.  I'd like to say it's the stunning design of the room with the breathtaking view of Monument Circle framing the stage that makes it so special, but I know in my heart it's really the audience that elevated the experience for me.  Everyone was engaged and jovial, intelligent but not above a good low down belly laugh.  The Cabaret at the Columbia Club just has the perfect combination of ambience and audience. All other cabaret venues will have to live up to this experience and I only hope they do but I doubt they will."

"The Cabaret at The Columbia Club in Indianapolis stands among, in my opinion, one of the best Cabaret clubs in the country.  I haven't been treated so royally in a long time. The ambience, the waitstaff, the acoustics, the sound, the respect that was given to me by all who worked there was extraordinary. The staff of The Cabaret run this club with passion and efficiency. I thoroughly enjoyed my engagement and look forward to returning in the very near future."     - Lainie Kazan
