Downtown Indianapolis' Modern Event Venue

Where Every Event is One of a Kind

The Crane Bay Event Center is a truly unique event venue located steps away from the Lucas Oil Stadium in Downtown Indianapolis. The décor features a modern, contemporary, and versatile atmosphere that can be transformed to meet the needs of any event!

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 in 2012. With the investment of time, capital, and the partnership of Crystal Signature Events, Crane Bay has become quite the event venue.

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. Another aspect to note is the wide-open indoor space that can be kept or divided using our complimentary in-house 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.

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. During the summer months the scene is set with beautiful hanging plants and greenery. Make the patio the center of the event by incorporating grilled to order kabobs for the guests to enjoy while they are sipping on a craft cocktail from the outdoor bourbon bar attached to the fireplace.

With our dedicated team and trusted vendor partnerships, Crane Bay delivers unparalleled service, creativity, and attention to detail for truly unforgettable events.
