We can save you money on the room fee! Here at the Park View Banquet Room, we are committed to making your very special event a time to remember!

Indianapolis 500 Parades
Consider reserving the Park View Banquet Room and Blue Room to watch the Parades from inside! The Park View Banquet Room, along with the 2nd Floor bar is available for up to 100 guests. The Indy 500 Parade begins right outside the Elbow Room Pub and Park View Banquet Room, on Penn & North Streets. Guests have a full view of the entire parade from the Park View Room, as well as being close up with celebrities and Indy Race Car Drivers. This would surely be a great way to impress friends and family!
Guests may also be interested in enjoying the Elbow Room menu, along with the breakfast menu that afternoon, or simply pre order items off the Park View catering menu. With the room rental, guests will have a cocktail server/bartender available for all of their beverage needs.
Blue Room
For smaller gatherings, we offer our Blue Room, a semi-private room located next to our upstairs bar with a view of the historic Scottish Rite Cathedral.  Ask about reserving the Blue Room along with our Game Room for your next happy hour, bachelorette or bachelor party, or to keep the celebration going after your reception. Couples wedding showers, political fundraisers, and birthday parties are also very popular!
