Old and blue. A hot combination. The oldest continually operating tavern in Indiana, the Slippery Noodle was established in 1850 and is still going strong. Famous for its blues and booze, the Slippery Noodle has hosted such noted musicians as Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Buddy Miles, Rick Derringer, Edgar Winter, James Cotton and Sugar Blue, to name a few. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Slippery Noodle was originally built as the Tremont House, a luxurious roadhouse for railway passengers. Later, it became a brothel and several taverns and was rumored to be linked to the Underground Railroad. Notorious Hoosier criminal John Dillinger reportedly hung around the tavern and used a back inside wall for target practice. You can still see bullets embedded in the brick wall. Loaded with atmosphere, the Slippery Noodle now features local, regional and national blues, along with a full-service menu and full bar.
