Turn Game Day into a Getaway

Welcome to Hoosier Nation! We're so excited to have you in Bloomington for the upcoming baseball game. While you're in town, it's essential to explore the city that's home to Indiana University. You'll quickly find that Bloomington is a quintessential college town complete with vivacious sporting events and team spirit. Before you arrive in B-Town, we're here to give you the rundown on how to make the most of your game day getaway. 

The Schedule

The Food

Janko's Little Zagreb exterior sign

Looking for a place to grab a bite before the game? Treat yourself to a top-notch steak and potatoes dinner at Janko's Little Zagreb. The iconic steakhouse in downtown Bloomington is known for their perfectly-grilled steaks, spicy Meatballs Bucharest, laid-back atmosphere, and IU-themed decor. The restaurant is very small and very popular, so we recommend you book a reservation to guarantee yourself a table.

Another local-favorite, laid-back restaurant is Upland Brewing Co. The brewery serves up artisan food and hand-crafted brews — their food menu changes slightly each season, but some staples on the menu include their Upland nachos, Hoosier tenderloin sandwich, and Bad Elmer's Fav burger. While they also feature seasonal beers, two year-round favorites are the Dragonfly IPA and the Bad Elmer's Porter.

The Lodging

Two queen room at the Memorial Union IU

There's no shortage of hotels in Bloomington, but if you're looking to stay near Bart Kaufman Field, check out the Hampton Inn or Home2 Suites by Hilton. Those wanting to spend the night on campus should look into The Biddle Hotel, located in the Indiana Memorial Union. The Graduate Bloomington is also a great option for those looking to bask in the spirit of game day, thanks to the hotel's IU-themed decor & design. No matter where you choose to snooze, B-Town lodging options span an assortment of styles, locations, and price points.
