Noblesville Nightlife: Things to Do When the Sun Goes Down

Noblesville, Indiana is a growing, prosperous community located on the north side of Indiana state capital Indianapolis. The suburb is home to mostly affluent families with children, families that are concerned about having good Noblesville schools, Noblesville parks, and other assets for Noblesville children.

However, residents searching for Noblesville nightlife aren’t entirely out of luck; there are enough things to do in Noblesville once the sun goes down to keep almost anybody occupied.

The first places most people look when in search of nightlife are the local pubs. Noblesville bars shouldn’t disappoint on the nightlife front; there’s a bar for nearly every type of patron out there. Mo’s Irish Pub, located in the Hamilton Town Center shopping mall, is your typical Irish pub in the vein of Claddagh Irish Pub in downtown Indianapolis and Fionn MacCool’s in Fishers, Indiana. This Noblesville business features live music, a delicious food menu, and an expansive beer list that will have you trying something new all night long. Indianapolis bands like American Cheese, Lemon Wheel, and Through Being Cool often make stops at Mo’s Irish Pub, especially during weekends, so the venue provides some great opportunities to get out on the dance floor.
