Downtown martini lounge in works

Upscale venue is next to Indiana Theatre

TERRE HAUTE — The owner of the Indiana Theatre Event Center plans to open an upscale martini and wine lounge at 107 S. Seventh St., although no opening date has been set.

The lounge will have an adjoining room that can be rented for various events, said owner Rob Lundstrom.

“We always intended to develop the Seventh Street frontage” in a way that complements the overall theater, he said.

On Tuesday, the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission approved a permit that allows beer, wine and liquor to be sold at the lounge as well as the general theater operation.

Lundstrom said he does not plan to open a restaurant at the Indiana Theatre Event Center.

The lounge and rental room will be for smaller groups of 20 to 50 people, which “may be a more economical option than renting the theater,” he said. “It gives us flexibility with more than one event taking place.”

 For those who want to conduct a meeting, family celebration or company event, “This might be a better size,” he said. The event could be separate from, or accessible to, the theater side.

A final plan is still being developed.

He doesn’t yet have a timeline, but anticipates it will open this spring. Right now, the space is used for storage.

The lounge will have a name, he said, yet to be announced.

Construction work and modifications at the Indiana Theatre complex are prioritized, with much of it driven by scheduled events. The lounge could be moved up or pushed back, depending on those priorities, he said.

The goal is to keep adding amenities to the Indiana Theatre operations and add to the community, Lundstrom said, but not to take away from any existing businesses.

The three-way alcoholic beverage permit was a transfer from 1429 S. 25th St., the former Zamberletti’s.

The Indiana Theatre Event Center has been able to serve alcohol through a catering operation, “but logistically it makes things easier to have a permit on site,” Lundstrom said.
