The Libertine and their famous Bacon Flight were recommended to us by the VRBO hosts we were staying with. We had an amazing experience with our mixologist, Michael. I say experience because that it what it truly was. During our first visit, we sat at the bar and Michael immediately introduced himself. He explained the food menu in detail, his favorites and the most popular, and then ... we got down to the business of cocktails! If you're expecting to pop in for a routine, run of the mill, quick beer or standard bar fare, guess again. We had already discovered that Indianapolis and the Fountain Square area are famous for creating unique and special cocktails so we asked Michael about his specialties. Order the "Lil birdy tweet", named after a former, obviously very special girlfriend. You'll love it. The "Pink Lady" was terrific. He created a few unique-to-us drinks based on our preferences for alcohol, sweet vs sour, fruity vs bold. The garnishes and finishes were beautiful and only added to the experience. Watching a true mixologist create something unique and visually beautiful is truly a sight to see.
In addition to the Bacon Flight (3 types of locally raised meat/bacon with 3 dipping sauces), we had the "Warm Ricotta Soppit" based on Michael's recommendation. We thoroughly enjoyed both.
One thing to know about Indiana is that bars are for 21 and over. Our kids wanted the famous Bacon Flight after our lengthy description. We just returned from our 2nd visit to Indianapolis and unfortunately since the Libertine is a bar, the kids could not go in. But we will definitely return!
