Get to Know Us

The Crane Bay is a truly unique event venue located steps away from the Lucas Oil Stadium in Downtown, Indianapolis. The décor features an modern, contemporary, and versatile atmosphere that can be transformed to meet the needs of any event! The walls of the facility are painted white; a blank canvas so to speak, that will allow you to adjust the LED lighted columns to any color to match your event.
Perhaps the most remarkable feature of Crane Bay is the private outdoor patio that faces the downtown skyline. On a chilly evening, the fireplace and heating elements will keep you warm while you cozy up on the comfortable lounge furniture. Another aspect to note is the wide-open indoor space that can be kept or divided using our draping system, allowing for smaller groups, if needed. This naturally progressive layout allows you to surprise your guests with a “room reveal” and move from cocktail reception, to dining or dancing with ease.
The building itself has been in existence since the 1800’s, but was taken over and transformed for the Rolling Stones Magazine Super Bowl XLVI Party. With the investment of time, capital, and the partnership of Crystal Catering, The Crane Bay has become quite the event venue
