Over & Under: The Rooftops & Underground of Evansville

From rooftop dining to underground hidden huddles, basements and sky-view patios will have you entertained over & under Evansville!


The Rooftop

Sip and see stunning sunsets with live bands and a bird's-eye view of Evansville's downtown from the Rooftop's rooftop. Feeling more down to earth? The street level patio is pet friendly. Play a game of Cornhole and chill around a firepit table when the sun goes down. Indoor or out, relax and enjoy modern cuisine paired with a wide selection of cold beer, award-winning wine, or distinctive cocktails.

On The Roof

A most unique and intimate open-air concert experience running throughout the summer months. The Rooftop Art Deck is an extension of the Arts Council's Bower Suhrheinrich Foundation Gallery on Downtown Main Street

COMFORT by the Cross-eyed Cricket

There's more than COMFORT food over and under on the corner of Third and Main. Don't let the street-level full house derail your dining plans. The Hideaway is tucked away just downstairs with its own unique vibe and the same epic menu. The Collective is where you'll get access to the balcony just above the entrance overlooking Main Street. But wait, there's more! The private dining Oak Room is also on the second floor, and the Upper Room on the fifth floor is an elegant grand ballroom and beautiful loft bar where your wedding dreams come true. 

High Score Saloon

Bargain basement isn't what you think on Main Street where arcade and console play is free and pinball ranges from fifty cents to a dollar. This beercade will take you back with vintage games on rotation so it never gets old. They keep it simply sensational in the kitchen serving up specialty Trash Tots and Dumpster Dogs, the perfect pairings for fourty types of liquor and rotating specialty brews on tap including gluten free. When you have tag-alongs or need a family friendly place to hang out, head over to High Score Player Two, an all age arcade with all the games you grew up with. 

Altar Bar @ Arcademie 

The brightest lights in the city can be found at the Arcademie Barcade, the arcade full of free play video games, pinball, and air hockey. La Campirana is in the kitchen serving up authentic street tacos and more. When it's time to rest your eyes on the horizon, head up to the roof deck and order a more complicated cocktail concoction. 

The Olde Courthouse Catacombs & The House of Lecter

The ultimate in underground, scaring the life out of over seven million souls for nearly fifty years by digging up a brand new theme every year! The tri-state's scariest, creepiest, and most fun Halloween tradition lurks in and under two historic buildings downtown, including the iconic gothic courthouse, where who knows how many souls were sent into the unknown.

Evansville Civic Theatre Underground

A twist on underground, The Evansville Civic Theatre does not hold back with edgy, thought provoking, heart-wrenching titles like 2 Across, Not Someone Like Me, Circle Mirror Transformation, Bachelorette, Man From Earth and more. Aside from the regular season of outstanding performances by local theatrical artists, The Underground takes you deeper.
