Great Craic at Nine Irish Brothers


"What's the craic?"

Visit the Emerald Isle and you may be asked this question. Don't worry — in this context craic (pronounced "crack") is a good thing! "Craic" is simply a term used to describe fun (something the Nine Irish Brothers family happens to do quite a bit). Good pubs are great craic — good times, good music, good food and drink, and good conversation.

You'll find plenty of craic at Nine Irish Brothers — seven days a week. We've got world-class live music, special music events, and session bands on a regular basis. In fact, in 2009, readers of the Purdue Exponent, Purdue University's student newspaper, chose Nine Irish Brothers as the Best Music Venue. We also show the best in American and Irish sports on the telly, and, of course, the patio is open for summertime enjoyment. For a list of upcoming entertainments and events, please visit our events calendar. In the meantime, feel free to browse our picture gallery to see what kind of craic our friends and families have been having!

Traditional Irish Music Sessions - West Lafayette & Indianapolis

Walk into our West Lafayette location on most Thursdays, or our Indianapolis location on some Wednesdays, and you may find a group of local musicians enjoying a few pints and playing in a session, or seisiún, while enjoying the craic.  A session is a great opportunity to kick back, relax, and enjoy an evening of great spontaneous Irish music!  If you're a competent musician with a knowledge of Irish music, stop by for the next one and pull up a stool!
