The Wellington

I was there the night The Wellington closed for good. It was just a couple weeks ago. And it was packed, just packed.

This was assuredly the smallest bar in Indianapolis’s Broad Ripple neighborhood, and perhaps in all of Indianapolis. I never measured, of course, but I bet it was no larger than my home’s kitchen and family room, combined.

A group of co-workers from three companies ago have met there the first Wednesday of the month for something like ten years. I’ve always been invited, but I usually had my sons on those Wednesdays and couldn’t go. Now that the parenting-time years are over I was starting to make it most Welly Wednesdays. And now it’s closed.

The gang will find some other Broad Ripple bar. But it won’t be the same.

    • As you’ll see in tomorrow’s post, the Electro and I didn’t exactly get on. But I did get a few really good photos from it, like this one.

    I’m not much of a bar person, but I’ve had a number of favorite restaurants close down.
    Certainly not the worst sort of loss, but unsettling just the same.
