It's a great venue for live music, especially if you're into jazz. Very small bar. Small, like an old fashioned, neighborhood bar. People are very friendly. Very eclectic feel to the place. Easy to have a special night here.

I've been coming to the CBox for a few years now. They've got an excellent rotation of musicians that play every night of the week... though I usually make it down for Sophie on Wednesdays because she's just too fun. There's no cover Monday-Thursday which...More

Ok so this place.... How do I say it. It's a dump. But I mean that in the most charming, loving, and respectful way. They have amazing music, great service and attentive bar staff, a cozy and intimate atmosphere, as well as a great patio!...More

I love good jazz, and good jazz is hard to come by, except in New Orleans or New York City. I was delightfully surprised to find some great jazz here last weekend! I can't wait until my next trip to Indy to go back!!

Nah, it's a pretty small place. Just a stage for the band and a row of small tables by the bar. Totally worth a visit though!
