My wife and I had our wedding here and I couldn't have been any happier with the venue or Carrie. It had everything we wanted: location, atmosphere, amenities and affordability. Carrie allowed us and helped us create something that truly fit us. We can not stop recommending Grove Haus for your wedding or for any event or party for that matter.
This space is fantastic for weddings, private parties, and concerts! The owners are great people to work with as well and will do what it takes to make your special event happen. We had our wedding at this location and couldn't have been happier! We've also gone back for other events and have not been disappointed... the acoustics are fabulous for all different kinds of music from classical to rock and it's a chill atmosphere. Definitely recommend this place!
Such a great space for an event of any kind! The staff is so accommodating and focused on serving the community! Would recommend this place to anyone for your meeting, workshop, festival, or function!
A flexible venue space for nearly any occasion. The stained glass windows and raised stage help set it apart from other spaces. Located in Fountain Square with easy parking.
AMAZING VENUE! A great positive space. Great decor and extremely clean. The owner is one of the nicest, most positive people I have ever met, and to say she helped out a lot, would be an understatement. The sound in the building was perfect. Just an amazing atmosphere to have an event. Thanks so much and God bless!
This is one of the best venues in the city. Grove Haus is equipped to present music of all genres. I was 100% satisfied with the experience I had performing there - best value and best experience of working with an Indianapolis venue in my career so far.
Beautiful venue, Amazing people, the space to entertain is filled with a warm and inviting spirit and look. The stained glass in amazing!
The Grove Haus is my favorite spot in Indy to catch a live show and the owners are two of the coolest people I have ever met if you have never been here you definitely have to check it out.
Best event place in Fountain Square!!! Has the best feeling of being like you are at home. Just the warm welcome you get stepping inside is amazing! I would highly recommend this place to anybody.
Grove Haus is a Top Shelf venue! The sound quality is amazing. The owners are very cool. It's in a neighborhood of Indianapolis called Fountain Square, which has taken off in the last ten years. I highly recommend using this "Diamond in the rough" for your next event. You will not be disappointed!
