Midwest Living Review
While small as big-city theater districts go, Mass Ave is home to Indy's concentration of art and theater venues. Located in an up-and-coming neighborhood on the downtown's east side, the street houses a mosque-turned-concert venue, community theater playhouse, and multiple comedy clubs. The arts district also has a variety of great restaurants, shops, live music, alfresco dining, great architecture and some art galleries. Overall, the neighborhood is a must-see for those visiting Indianapolis. With that said, if you're visiting after dark, be aware of your surroundings and make safety-conscious choices. The neighborhood houses some less-than-savory characters in additon to the arts scene.
