6 Spots for Happy Hour in Speedway

One of the best things about living in Downtown Speedway is that it’s a very walkable and bikeable community with many errands and entertainment spots that are accessible without driving. If you’re new to Speedway or considering a move, you may be interested in these local spots that are perfect for grabbing a drink or a bite after work. Many of them are just a short walk from Wilshaw Apartments. 

Dawson’s on Main

Literally 23 feet from Wilshaw Apartments, you’ll find Dawson’s on Main. Try the famous hand-breaded pork tenderloin or share a generous platter of beef or chicken nachos. 

Tacos & Tequila

Head directly across the street from Wilshaw, and you’ll find Tacos & Tequila, a fun local spot for you-know-what! In addition to margaritas and other fun cocktails, wine, and beer, you’ll find an impressive variety of tacos, fajitas, nachos, and other snacks that pair well with an after-work libation. 

Barbecue and Bourbon

Walk one minute south of Wilshaw, and you’ll be at Barbecue and Bourbon. Have some Memphis-style barbecue with a selection from their extensive whiskey list, and walk home when you’re finished. Even if you’re not a bourbon drinker, there’s something tasty you’re sure to enjoy. 

O’Reilly’s Irish Pub

Every neighborhood needs an Irish Pub, and the one in Speedway is O’Reilly’s, just a minute’s walk north of Wilshaw Apartments. Try one of their house specialties like the Guinness beef stew, fish and chips, or Irish meatloaf. 

Big Woods

Less than half a mile from Wilshaw Apartments, the Speedway location of Big Woods Brewery has become a Main Street favorite with rotating food and drink offerings throughout the week. Enjoy $1.99 tacos on Tuesdays and $5 pints on Wednesdays!

Daredevil Brewing Co.

The Daredevil taproom is almost as much of a westside Indianapolis landmark as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway itself, and you can find locals enjoying a snack nearly any day of the week. Best of all, it’s just a 5-minute walk from Wilshaw! Share a tavern-style pizza with your friends and sample a flight of local beers. When it’s warm out, you can bring your dog and sit outside near the designated dog area by the patio.

Keep in mind that happy hour specials and menu items may vary, so it's best to check with the individual establishments for their current offerings.
