As the name indicates — and the sports memorabilia, 20 beers on tap and 36 plasma flat-screen TVs confirm — Indigo Joe’s Sports Pub & Restaurant is a sports bar.
But underneath Indigo Joe’s sporty exterior beats the heart of a family-friendly restaurant with a menu far beyond that of the average sports pub.
While hard-core sports bar fans can enjoy a separate, enclosed room with a classic sports bar ambience, families can feel comfortable dining and catching games in the main dining room.
"We’re trying to bring sports to families with this concept," said Nathan Trent, who with partner Christine Chan opened Indigo Joe’s at 7260 S. Cimarron Road Aug. 18.
"We have people who come here who aren’t even sports fans," he added. "They just enjoy the food."
Indigo Joe’s is open 24 hours a day and seats 205. Reservations aren’t required.
