Here at The Cabaret, we take the performing arts, and having fun, very seriously – and we want you to be part of the merriment. Enjoy some of the most highly-acclaimed Broadway stars and jazz musicians in the nation – all while sipping craft cocktails from the Glick Bar. And while you’re at it, why not order dinner? We’ll bring it to your table during the show.

The beauty of the Cabaret lies in the spontaneous nature of each show. Unlike well-known musicals, with cabaret, audiences never know what to expect next. Artists can choose to sing old standards or an original number. They can share personal stories or make jokes with random people in the crowd.
“Best in class. A truly delightful experience - over the top!”
“We looked at the many places where we could spend our money for entertainment and realized there was no venue that came close to The Cabaret. The venue and staff simply make this venue the best in Indianapolis.”
"Attending a cabaret show can feel like you're part of a (very stylish) secret society. It's you, the audience, seated at tables, sipping wine or a cocktail, with the vocalist, perhaps fresh off of Broadway, just a few feet away on stage."
"This space is truly what a cabaret is meant to be... an intimate setting of hightops and enclosed booths help the audience feel special and a lone piano with small, personal stage complete the picture."
“Indy's posh landing pad for Broadway stars on Pennsylvania Street.”
“My favorite thing in the world is to connect with people, break the fourth wall, improvise, make people laugh, and talk directly to the audience. Cabaret is basically everything I like to do, all in one.”
“Awesome venue! I tell everyone I know about The Cabaret and encourage them to see a show.”
“The Circle City’s swanky new cabaret space is Broadway’s latest buzz. Old Hollywood meets urban chic in a softly lit chandelier-filled room that holds 190 people—no seat in the house is more than five rows from the stage—it feels like Lea Salonga is giving her life story for you. Stick around for a meet and greet after the spellbinding serenade."
“One of the best environments for serious music fans in town!”
