    From the poor service to the rude owner, this place is a dump

    Don't come here unless you enjoy being treated rudely
    I don't know what kind of crowd this place usually attracts but I can say that I will never come back here. I was checking out the bars on a Sunday before flying home. When I walked in, the bartender demanded my ID - which was fine, but I didn't like his tone. After verifying my age, he returned my ID to me and asked me what I would be having. I politely said "Nothing, thanks." I then attempted to go back to view the patio - just wanted to see what the place was like. The bartender stopped me and said that if I wasn't going to buy something I would have to leave. I certainly will never come here again, and I recommend others to avoid it as well unless they don't mind being treated rudely.

    Very laid back and intimate bar.
    Zonie's Closet is a very fun and entertaining bar on the near east side of Indianapolis. When you walk in you are greeted by a warm and intimate atmosphere. There is something about this bar that just makes you feel at home. If it isn't the extremely friend bar staff, it is the very candid entertainer on the mic stalling for the next performer. This is drag at it's realest. There are not a lot of limits at this bar and everyone is welcome. Everyone is there to have a good time... no drama. You can call to reserve seats or just show up 5 minutes early, because every seat in the bar is taken by the end of the night. This is a small town bar just located right outside downtown. They have shows 4 days a week, Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. They all start at 10:30... ish. Grab your cocktail and strap yourself in for the ride. Zonie's Closet will amaze and confuse you every show.
