Chatterbox Jazz Club
It only takes a few minutes to understand why Chatterbox has earned its reputation as the Best Dive Jazz Club in Indianapolis, inspired filmmakers and generated dozens of news stories. The live jazz is unforgettable. And the place is most definitely a dive. It’s a combination that has inspired a loyal following of music lovers for decades. It wasn’t always the place to go for live music. When David Andrichik purchased the building that housed Chatterbox in 1982, he primarily was looking to make a real estate investment in downtown Indianapolis. The bar on the first floor of the building was just part of the deal. And there wasn’t much going on along Massachusetts Avenue, with the exception of a few shops and some sketchy activity in nearby buildings.
