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.

It is such a great experience to sit and watch a fantastic basketball game in this historical arena! It has had a major updates to the facility, but kept it historical feeling.

If you enjoy college basketball - you must see a game here. Too much history....and Butler plays some amazing basketball, so go catch a game. I recommend spending the extra money and buying seats in the 100 level. They are full seats and a comfortable (I'm 6'3"). I would not recommend the 300 level seats as they are bleachers. 200's...

This was the second time my husband and I visited the Hinkle Fieldhouse. ("Hinkle" rhymes with "wrinkle" by they way, so don't embarrass yourself by mispronouncing it, like I did!) We are fans of the Xavier Musketeers (Cincinnati) so the drive was about two hours from our house. The court is featured in the film "Hoosiers," so we had a... More

The renovation of the fieldhouse did not disappoint. The floor is the original floor that has been kept up impeccably. Opportunity to get close to the players since there isn't much distance between the floor and the fans.

I was able to attend a BU exhibition game and very excited to see the nostalgia of Hinkle Fieldhouse. I was told that renovations were done in the off season, which really disappointed. I wanted to see more of the natural look of the field-house as I could. But overall it looked really good, and up to date. A little... More

And in Indiana, basketball is about as close as it gets to a religion. For non-Hoosiers, it should be noted that this building was built before but named after Paul D (Tony) Hinkle, legendary Butler University coach who was to Butler basketball what John Wooden (also a Hoosier) was to UCLA. For basketball fans in general, this was the site... More

We attended the very first exhibition basketball game after the renovation and enjoyed it very much. Even in the "cheap seats" we could see everything. Food and restrooms are conveniently located.
