In a time when we can't all gather around a table, we can still come together as a community. We're Open Indy is a partnership between WRTV and our local restaurants and businesses with one goal: getting them through this tough time. Every day, we will help shine a light on the businesses that make up our community by telling their stories and rallying around those who are keeping the grills going, the hospitals running, and the businesses operating.
INDIANAPOLIS — While we can't be sitting on the outdoor patio right now at "Flatwater" enjoying the sun, enjoying warmer temperatures and live music, the popular Broad Ripple restaurant wants you to know they're still open.
On any given day, when the weather is warm, the patio at Flatwater would be packed, the outdoor bar would be open, and people would be enjoying dinner, drinks and live music. Many with their favorite four-legged friends in tow.
While we will have to wait to gather again, this locally owned business is still here to serve you with the same friendly hello and smile that has made this place a favorite place for those who live in the village and from afar.
They are open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and will bring your food right out to your car. You can find the menu on their Instagram.
To go along with the food, you can get wine, growlers to go and make sure you pick up some gift cards as well.
Owners Mike and Allen are doing an excellent thing for all the employees who are currently out of work: whatever amount you spend on the gift cards, 50% of it will go into a fund to be split evenly with employees to help get them through this tough time.
We all look forward to when the bike racks are full, the patios are packed and dining rooms full — not only at Flatwater but all of Indy's great restaurants across this great city.
