Bottleworks Hotel isn’t just a place to rest your head at night. It’s a destination in itself where history meets modern luxury and style with distinctive art and architecture at every turn. Allow us to show you a new way to stay.
As you make your final turn onto Carrolton St, you quickly lock eyes with the valet. Before stepping out of your car, you scramble to tidy it up before handing him the keys (and your number).
You confidently saunter into the terrazzo and tile-scaped lobby. Anastasia, at the warm, handcrafted front desk greets you with the most comfortable smile ahead of handing you your room keys and directing you around the corner to the elevator. Before stepping away, she offers you a tea-stained newspaper that reads "The Distribution" and goes on to explain the bounty of things to see and do in the district. With the newspaper and room key in hand, you grab your bag and proceed past the pool table and through the lobby. Up to room 2011.
Damn, this artwork is cool.
The polished red door swings open and you're able to let your hair down. The king bed faces windows overlooking pedestrians coming and going from The Garage Food Hall and retail shops below. You make yourself comfortable in the upholstered armchair while catching up on the group chat.
Freshened up, you head downstairs and back through the sun-lit lobby. Sunglasses were the right choice. The team at the front desk is as friendly as ever, and you assure them that this must be the place as you pass by.
Your friends wait outside as the valet pulls the door open for you. Him again? A "thank you" is paid as you quickly walk by. It's time to get this party started.
After some small talk, the group makes their way just steps to Living Room Theater, where you each grab a fruity craft cocktail before heading in to see the most anticipated flick of the season. Get comfortable... it's showtime!
The movie did not disappoint, and neither did the cocktails. You step outside of the theater with what will arguably be the most difficult decision of the night. Dinner…and two of Indy’s hottest new restaurants are just steps away.
Go left, and you’re at the Asian-fusion restaurant, Modita, quietly tucked inside Bottleworks Hotel. Go right, and you’re on the corner of Mass Ave. and Carrollton Ave., at Bottleworks’ newest pop star, The Fountain Room. You literally can’t go wrong.
Dinner was to die for and the dessert was insane. You finish your after-dinner drinks and peer out the restaurant window to decide which spot you’ll hit up next. The lights over Carrollton sparkle light diamonds in the sky.
The night is young, and so are we. Let’s do this.
You gather the group for a photo op in front of the bistro lights and the iconic Bottleworks Hotel doors. The valet slowly walks toward you with a half smile on his face and offers to take the pic. He’s back for more.
Anastasia mentioned something about Pins Mechanical at check-in. You see the word PINS in lights, and decide to give it a try. It’s an easy yes.
You thank the valet (for the second time tonight) and make your way toward the massive green entryway doors at Pins. They pop perfectly against the smooth, white tile walls. This place is an Art Deco dream. The doors open and music floods into the streets. You grab a couple of lanes for Duckpin bowling and a Pins Passion Punch for the group. Leave the tab open.
A little bar inside the hotel caught your eye earlier in the day; Sundry & Vice. Sounds like the perfect place for a nightcap before retreating back to suite 2011 to indulge in a hot shower and that amazing bathrobe that greeted you earlier.
“What a night,” you think as you peel back the crisp, white comforter and crawl into bed. This is definitely the place.
