Bourbon Street Distillery at 361 Indiana Ave. downtown is scheduled to close Friday after 15 years in business, the owner announced Tuesday.

“Bourbon Street Distillery is closing its doors this week,” a post on the bar’s Facebook page said. “Our last day will be Friday, so come out and get one last beer and tenderloin and see your favorite bartenders and servers before they move on to bigger and better things. Thanks for a great 15 years Indianapolis!”

Operator Katie Bray’s late father, O.B. Brant, purchased the property in 2002 and opened Bourbon Street Distillery. Bray was unavailable for comment Tuesday afternoon.

The building and bar are available for purchase, according to the Facebook post.

Besides tenderloins, Bourbon Street’s menu features several sandwiches, as well as chicken, seafood and pasta dishes.

Prior to Bourbon Street Distillery, the building housed the Snazzy Jazz Bistro & Conversation Bar, a business that lasted only about four months. Before that, it was known as The Distillery.
