Our History

The Vogue Nightclub in Broad Ripple is one the most popular and storied venues in the Midwest. The Vogue opened as a movie theater on June 18, 1938. Through the next 3 decades, The Vogue was one of the premier movie houses in the Midwest. In the 70′s The Vogue’s image shifted a bit when it became an X rated movie theater, and even featured cult classic “Deep Throat”.

On December 31, 1977, The Vogue opened as a nightclub. Since our opening in the late 70′s, The Vogue has continuously been considered the top nightspot in Indianapolis. Many great bands and artists have performed here over the past 25 years including Warren Zevon, Bo Diddley, Willie Nelson, The Ramones, John Hiatt, Blondie, Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, The White Stripes, The Flaming Lips, Cheap Trick, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Byrne, Rusted Root, Bob Weir & Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead, Frank Zappa, Govt Mule, Keb’ Mo’, John Mayer, Kings of Leon, Ice Cube, The Dave Matthews Band, and many many more!

Not only are we known for our great concerts, but over the past 10 years, we have been the #1 dance club in Indy, as well. Every Wednesday and Saturday night, we are host to some of the hottest dance parties in Indiana. Spinning everything from retro to top 40, hip hop and techno, The Vogue’s dance nights are considered the place to be seen.

Our goal is best expressed in our mission statement: To provide our customers with the highest possible entertainment value in a nightclub setting. To achieve this goal, we provide the best service, the best drinks and the best in live music and the best in recorded music dance club formats. This has been and continues to be the goal of The Vogue!
