Kilroy’s Broad Ripple plan clears another hurdle

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Kilroy’s Bar n’ Grill is a step closer to opening a location in Broad Ripple despite protests from a neighborhood group opposing the restaurant.

It received preliminary approval on Monday from the Local Alcoholic Beverage Board of Marion County, which recommended a liquor permit for the building at 821 Broad Ripple Ave. The site now is home to a Cardinal Fitness.

A final decision on Kilroy’s alcohol permit will be made by the Indiana Alcohol & Tobacco Commission at a yet-to-be determined date.

The proposal to open a Kilroy’s in Broad Ripple has drawn opposition from the Broad Ripple Village Association and some neighbors, wary of another large bar and concerned the outdoor dining area would remove too many scarce parking spaces.

A Kilroy’s variance earned the endorsement of Indianapolis’ planning staff this summer after the owner agreed to scale back an outdoor searing area from 4,800 square feet to 2,000 square feet, allowing for the preservation of more parking spaces.

The Kilroy’s in Broad Ripple would be owned by Paul Murzyn, who also owns another Kilroy's in downtown Indianapolis. The original Kilroy’s is in Bloomington.

  • Cardinal Fitness
    Has anyone heard if Cardinal will stay in the area? If so, any speculation on location?
  • Try parking in a big city...
    Parking in Broad Ripple is very easy almost all the time. The only time you ever have to walk much more than three or four blocks is for a small window of time late on Friday and Saturday night. There is maybe a three or four hour span each weekend night that I would even call remotely tough but even then you can ALWAYS get a space if you are willing to walk seven or eight blocks. Try parking in many areas of Chicago, New York, SF, etc. and then you will really know what not having enough parking is like.
  • Totally agree
    BVRA needs some fresh & young blood.
  • Parking
    Broad Ripple will lose almost 400 parking spaces when the parking garage is built because there will be no more street parking for non residents. People who say there is plenty of parking don't live in Broad Ripple. The problem with parking a few blocks away is that the side streets are poorly lit and there are no lights on the monon so that is when the problems start. So saying there is going to be a parking garage is not a vaild argument either. The arguments should be the fact there are unoccuiped buildings in broad ripple why take one that would not leave unless bought out.Also, why doesn't Kilroy's wait to go under the new parking garage and expand Broad ripple? Finally, there is going to be a logistical nightmare with all that traffic at that conner.
  • parking
    Cardinal fitness whas not private parking all the time. Friday and Saturday nights you can pay to park there. However, the BRVA issue with the parking is really a non issue. There is plenty of parking and there will be a new 400 space garage built. Poor argument, just come out and say you don't want a bar. BRVA need some "younger" board members that "get" broad ripple.
    • Parking
      BRVA loses all credibility that they have when they make their absurd parking argument. Like the other posters have mentioned, the Cardinal lot was private parking. In addition, I have NEVER had any problems parking in Broad Ripple. Granted, I may have had to walk a few blocks. But for most people in this city, they could use walking a few blocks.
    • Parking
      The parking argument is not valid to begin with. Parking for Cardinal Fitness was private and wasn't accessible for the general public in the first place. If you were heading to Broad Ripple for dinner / night out, you never had the option to park there in the first place. The argument of losing parking is simply not valid.
    • Misguided
      I understand the bar complaint.....possibly valid. Fortunately, Killroy's has some ok food. The issue I have is with the parking complaint. This outdoor plaza would have been somewhat unique and fitting with the long term goals of BR Ave. Why do we continue to reduce quality of life for a few parking spots........you want walkability and transit modes, cut parking requirements. It's that easy!

    1. Uh, sorry Johnnie, but you are incorrect. Despite the assertions by yourself and various defenders and captains, sports attendance is NOT off significantly at most sporting events in the US. Variances in attendance has been in the range of single digits, both + & - for years now. MLB has had most of its best overall attendance nubers in the last decade, and that trend has been consistent for most major sporting events. The number one issue cited by most fans when asked about attendance is the overall cost of attending. The presence of HD and big screen televisions in home doesn't even register, as a factor for not attending an event. VALUE in the product is the key, and apparently is something lacking in the current ICS. What other explanation is there when with what is routinely touted as the "best" racing on the planet, fans are staying away in DROVES. A "close" title battle into the last event at Fontana, with the "cars and stars" of the ICS, and who showed up? MAYBE 8K. Sorry, but HD TV isn't to blame for that kind of fan apathy.

    3. If she was worth the $ the public outcry over direct tv dropping them would have kept them on their dishes as we have seen with other companies. I too quit watching channel 13 after she showed up since I left channel 8 because of her all show rather than production results. When Randy on 8 corrected her she had a big head and incorrectly challenged his correction for pronunciation of a city. Other antics while she matures was too much for me with her very inaccurate forecasts. All the forecasters were predicting rain until Thursday except Chris. They predicted sunny on Thursday but instead of rain until Thursday upon which the sun would finally make it out in full glory Chris was right on the money just as I too predicted looking at the radar on weather.gov. One thing I love about Angela is the fear you can see in her every time it thunders in the winter. It far exceeds the entertainment value of her body language (high heel noise drags, depression, etc) when her forecasts are so incorrect. Her hair stands on end, you have to see it!!!
