This is a nice place to see a show, seems as though most seats have a decent view of the stage. We were in row kk, orchestra. This is kind of just too far back for my liking. A few of the seats near the aisle were obstructed by a giant pole. Event parking, $10. I would definitely go there... More

The Murat is a fantastic venue - have been visiting this place for twenty years, and it's great to see that they haven't taken out any of the old architecture. The Murat is one of the few beautiful concert structures in Indianapolis, and I'm glad to see that it's still being used by many different, unique acts!

Attended a folk music singer/songwriter show here in November 2016. The performers were great and this review focuses mainly on the failing of the venue. Staff members outside doors insisted you needed to show ID and get wristband to purchase alcohol inside. Wristband ended up hidden under coat sleeve and no staff member at any of the bars visited asked... More

No matter the seat you are close to the stage action. The interior is majestic- an old Shriners facility that has been left intact and restored. The food and refreshments are very good and plenty of room in the restrooms, preventing long lines. Parking is adjacent to the building and box office is just inside the building- where you can...

I have been there twice. John Prine in 2009, and The Moody Blues November 1st of this year. The venue is beautiful, convenient, historical and Accoustically excellent. Best place in indy for a musical event!

Liked our riser seats for a concert. Sound was great, very loud but mixed well and smooth. Food is available but popcorn had lots of hard pieces, almost inedible. No obvious signs on the building, so kind of hard to locate. Nice parking at the local Catholic Church.

Obviously,The Deftones put on an amazing show... But, this facility was amazing. It was absolutely beautiful. We were both very impressed. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The parking, we prepaid for it, was so convenient. We had an amazing night. Definitely interested in attending more shows at this venue!!!

I love the style & elegance of this place, so much more romantic than modern arenas. Good acoustics.

I have been at the Marat twice - Salt N Papa and Jeff Foxworthy/Larry the cable guy. Beautiful place inside and out. Seats are arranged where you get a great view no matter what seat you get. They also have VIP parking that is only a little bit more than outside parking. It definitely worth it. I was able to... More
