Very cozy and warm place to see basketball. Not a bad seat in the house. Went there for the NCAA three point and slam dunk challenge. Fun was had by all. Great venue.

While visiting Indy, we stopped by Butler University. After walking the campus, we walked over to Hinkle Fieldhouse. It's a big, old-fashioned, "barn." Unlike more modern gyms, this has lots of character. There's a display of memorabilia in the concourse area. Includes memorabilia from the movie "Hoosiers" which was filmed here. Basketball fans and movie buffs will love this.

This place redefines the definition of nosebleed seats. They were awkward and very high. Not too much fan interaction as some other stadiums. No free t-shirts being shot out, etc. Say a Pacers game. Would not return for another.

I'm an old soul, or so I've been told. I enjoy the older things, the vintage, and the classic. It doesn't get more classic than Hinkle. Went to a Saturday afternoon game. The place was almost packed and loud as loud could be. The student section makes the game feel like a high school game and the facilities make it... More

We took our grandson to a Butler Basketball game in the newly renovated Hinkle Fieldhouse. I'm an alum and sat in the section reserved for alumni. We had visited Hinkle many times before but were so impressed with the renovation that kept the historic feel and made the seating more comfortable.

this is one of the great fieldhouses in the nation and I grew up in the hinkle household I've known this place since 1960, and, to my knowledge, not much has changed. all the high school basketball championships used to be played here, during nonclass basketball, and the spring days were filled with buses and cars from around the stae....

The field house is a place where history was made in Indianapolis. The feel you get when you step inside is amazing. You can see basketball games and the seating is great. There is a feeling of "Hoosier " when you go inside. The area is in the Bulter Univerity district which is something to see as we'll.

Bultler Bulldogs are awesome, and the newly renovated Hinkle Fieldhouse is, as well! The original building is one of Indy's most famous landmarks.
