Imagine your favorite watering hole and the live music club rolled into one. Broadripple Rick O'Shay's Irish Pub is that dream party house that never ceases on giving you a great night out. Open on weekends from 6p, the club attracts a number of independent rock and punk bands, who consider this their favorite stopover in Fort Wayne while on tour. Delicious sinful libations are churned out by the skilled bartenders, and the dance floor is flooded with revelers dancing to the tunes. Popular bands like Autovator, I,Wombat and Taproot have performed here in the past. Open till late, this club is 'the' spot to go to for a happening party.
This entertainment center is located in Fort Wayne, which is just a short drive from Chicago. It has five clubs under its roof and the main room hosts as many as 65 national concerts every year. The state-of-the-art technology distinguishes the place from others of its kind. Computerized lighting and a 3,000 watt sound system are some of the highlights. The establishment also features a large dance floor, where bands perform acts that are projected on a big TV screen. Past performers include Willie Nelson, Creed, Godsmack and REO Speedwagon. Refreshments are available on-site. An ATM machine near the entrance will help you load up your wallet, but don't worry if you can't access it—the place also accepts major credit cards.
