The Press Box

Sports are all about forming an allegiance to a team and rooting for that team through thick and thin. When it comes to local sports bars, Indy readers are firmly waving the giant foam finger for The Press Box. At this point, the venerable East Broadway spot is a dynasty akin to the 1980s Edmonton Oilers, Red Auerbach’s Boston Celtics and the 1947-1962 New York Yankees. Unless, of course, you don’t care for those teams. Then The Press Box is more like the 1970s Pittsburgh Pirates, Phil Jackson’s Chicago Bulls and, well, you get the idea. The Press Box: 835 East Broadway, 721-1212,
