Under 21 Dance Clubs in Indiana


The dance clubs in Indiana that cater to an under-21 crowd schedule the majority of DJs and bands for the weekends. As more under-21 dance clubs are opening throughout Indiana, the live music and dance scene continues to grow in alcohol-free environments. Note that while a club may be labeled as ‘all ages’, it’s always a good idea to call ahead and ask if there’s an age minimum. Most venues list upcoming shows on their websites, but only sell tickets at the door.

The Emerson Theatre

  • In central Indiana, the Emerson Theatre is a fully restored vintage movie house presenting local bands every weekend, and occasional performances on weeknights. While concessions are available, the venue doesn’t sell alcohol and only admits patrons over the age of 15. The seat-less space features much of its original architecture, a large dance floor, pool tables and a lounge area. Known for its high energy, the majority of the music is hard core, punk and metal. An eclectic list of national bands, such as Sugar Ray and L7, has sold out this 400-person venue.

Fountain Square Theatre

  • Less than two miles away from downtown Indianapolis, Fountain Square Theatre is part of a multi-venue complex including three restaurants, duckpin bowling with vintage lanes and a hotel. The all-ages theatre is housed in a former vaudeville motion picture house that first opened in 1928. The space was then converted into a Woolworth shop, and later renovated into a cultural center for live music. The theatre has a distinctly retro vibe with furnishings from the 1950s and entertainment to match. Fridays feature Midwestern swing bands and dance lessons early in the night. Known for its friendly service and diverse entertainment, Fountain Square is a stop along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail.
