Sara’s Soirée Music Lounge Features Food, Spirits and All That Jazz

Many will find the latest addition in downtown Noblesville to be music to their ears – literally.

Sara’s Soirée Music Lounge, located on Noblesville’s historic downtown square, opened its doors on April 20. Owner Sara Howe calls her new business a music listening lounge with a speakeasy, downtown-Chicago feel.

“I wanted to build a place around music where there is also space to enjoy great ambiance, food and spirits,” said Howe.

Howe’s vision for a music lounge was several years in the making. Finding the right location was crucial, and Howe was thrilled to land her business in Noblesville. She touted the community feel and energy in Noblesville as the impetus for her decision. Her music lounge sits at the former location of Texy Mexy restaurant.

As a vocalist, instrumentalist and band leader, Howe’s passion is to promote and support musicians.

“My heart song is how to make my space better for musicians, and bless them and continue to grow,” said Howe.

Howe was very intentional about creating a space where musicians don’t have to worry about setting up equipment or running their own sound.

Sara’s showcases highly trained musicians. The establishment entertains all genres of music, but hones in on jazz. Music acts play six days a week, with two acts playing on Friday and Saturday. The lounge is closed on Mondays. In the upcoming weeks, Freddie Mendoza, the Naptown Strangers, Rob Dixon, and Gordon Bonham will be performing.

“Fifty years ago there were many places like this,” said Howe. “They dwindled over the years. There aren’t a ton of places in the state of Indiana like this where you can listen to live music.”

Howe’s focus has not just been on the music, but also the food and spirits. She enlisted friend Emily DiRosa, former co-owner of Matteo’s Ristorante Italiano, to create the menu and assist with the wine, champagne and bourbon selection. The music lounge offers fine dining, with an eclectic, modern European and American menu that includes everything from an ahi tuna dinner to an American jazz burger. Dinner is served by candlelight, creating a cozy atmosphere for guests.

Sara’s Soirée Music Lounge is located at 818 Logan St, Noblesville, IN 46060. Click the image above to visit their website, make reservations, or connect to social accounts.

Reservations are not required but are recommended, as the space seats 66 guests and interests has been high since opening. Business-casual dress is recommended. Currently, the music lounge only allows guests 21 and older. Parking is offered on the street or in a free public parking lot.

Howe’s hope is to continue to grow what her business offers, and plans to explore brunch music options and other avenues of music listening in the future.
