Welcome to Tinker House Events, an extraordinary event venue situated in the vibrant heart of downtown Indianapolis. Located at the intersection of 16th Street and The Monon Trail, our multi-tenant property thrives in a dynamic and emerging neighborhood. We are proud to call renowned businesses like Hotel Tango Distillery and Small Victories Hospitality our neighbors, contributing to the allure and excitement of the area.

Nestled on the second floor of a historic warehouse, Tinker House Events offers a captivating space for your special occasions. Spanning an impressive 4,000 square feet, our main room features large windows that flood the space with natural light, exposed brick walls that exude character, and rustic timber pillars that infuse an industrial charm. As you explore the venue, you’ll discover unique artistic elements, such as a bench meticulously crafted from a repurposed tumbler drum, showcasing our commitment to creativity and sustainability.

Versatility is at the core of our company, allowing us to cater to a wide range of events, from elegant weddings to corporate functions and everything in between. Our magnificent custom bar, positioned on the north side of the room, serves as a central gathering place for conversations, creating a captivating focal point. The expansive windows provide sweeping views of the surrounding cityscape, creating an inviting and dynamic atmosphere.

One of the standout features of the second floor is our ‘green room’; a serene retreat located just off the main event space. Adorned with lush greenery, vintage furniture, a captivating custom light installation and a beautifully crafted sliding wood door crafted from a reclaimed ash tree, this oasis offers a tranquil space for everything from a space for the bridal party to prepare or a sanctuary for VIP guests seeking solace from the festivities. Step out onto the small veranda, illuminated by enchanting café lights, and relish in breathtaking views of the up-and-coming downtown Indianapolis skyline. This charming outdoor space invites guests to unwind while savoring delectable food and refreshing beverages.

Complementing the second floor’s appeal is Provider Café, a cozy coffee shop occupying the first floor of the building. As daylight fades, Provider Café transforms into an intimate and inviting space available for private event rentals. The interior exudes a warm and welcoming atmosphere, providing an ideal setting for mingling and socializing. On pleasant evenings, the spacious patio becomes a haven for networking, dancing, and live music, enhancing the versatility and allure of the venue. Whether you’re hosting an intimate gathering or utilizing the space as an overflow or transition area for larger events, Provider Café offers a charming and adaptable backdrop.
