What started as a shotgun saloon with little more than a tap and a table has become one of the Midwest's premier bars. After expansion in the mid-nineties, which included the addition of mixed drinks, live bands, dance music, as well as the purchase of the Indianapolis Star building to make room for a larger beer garden (which eventually became a permanent structure), the Ballyhoo has continued to grow in reputation and tradition. It remains the top destination for Indiana State alumni when they return to Terre Haute for homecoming, ISU sporting events, fraternity, sorority functions, or to visit friends and family. Whether you are visiting us for the first time or the thousandth, we thank you for making the Ballyhoo one of your memories.
