Up-and-coming Meridian-Kessler attracts a hip crowd to North College Avenue for its stylish Latin American and Italian restaurants, brewpubs and quirky bars serving burgers, pizza and vegetarian food. The memorabilia-filled Red Key Tavern retains its original 1930s murals. Striking, early-20th-century mansions in a mix of architectural styles are preserved in the leafy North Meridian Street Historic District.
With a vibrant mix of homes, local merchants and open green spaces, the Meridian-Kessler neighborhood is far enough north of downtown Indianapolis to be thoroughly laid-back—yet near enough to be completely urban. Our community is comprised of passionate residents of all ages who love the winding streets, support established and emerging local businesses, and take advantage of nearby schools and faith-based institutions.
