Venue Info

Fountain Square’s Thunderbird hasn’t completely shed its former guise of a live music venue from the 1950s and ‘60s. The old-fashioned black upright piano is the visual epicenter of the room, and the bar is lit like a stage, though Thunderbird now serves as a southern gastropub, dishing out hot, hearty, and heavy plates like pickled okra fries with roasted garlic and cayenne pepper, Naptown hot chicken biscuits, a pimento patty melt, with pimento, cheddar, shaved Brussels, and roma tomato, and plenty of fried chicken options to grease up your hands. Thunderbird is a gem of a craft cocktail bar; on the drink menu of “Chillers” and “Thrillers,” take a vacation with the Escape from New York Sour, with bonded bourbon, vanilla, lemon, strawberry, egg white, and red wine.
