A New Home for Cabaret
In the heart of downtown Indianapolis, in the Metzger Building at 9th and Pennsylvania Streets. The Metzger Building, owned by Buckingham Companies, is part of the area Buckingham is developing as "Library Square" an area centered on creative office, gallery, and cultural space, featuring historic loft and new construction, apartments, restaurants, public art, and a pedestrian "living alley." The Metzger Building also houses the Arts Council of Indianapolis and Gallery 924.

A World-Class Venue
An urban chic venue designed by RATIO Architects, featuring state of the art sound and lighting to spotlight the world-class artists who grace our stage. Flexible seating will allow for 180-200 patrons for performances and 300+ for special events.

Arts Partnerships
Shared common space with the Arts Council / Gallery 924 provides opportunities for collaboration and deeper engagement in the arts and cultural community. The Cabaret will also serve other arts organizations and performers in need of rehearsal and performance space.

Expanded Programming
