Commission Row hopes to finish Pacers’ block in the downtown area



Indianapolis, Indiana – Right next to Gainbridge Fieldhouse, a brand-new entertainment venue is set to open in time for the 2024 NBA All-Star Game.

The newest development by Pacers Sports and Entertainment in the downtown Wholesale District is called Commission Row.

Now that it’s finished, the organization’s executives want to wow the throngs of fans that will be in Indianapolis on Thursday, April 25, exactly, when the All-Star Game takes place.

It caps off years of development in the neighborhood, which included the opening of Bicentennial Unity Plaza last year and multi-million dollar upgrades at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.

PS&E and the Indianapolis-based Cunningham Restaurant Group collaborated on Commission Row management.

According to Executive Chef Corey Fuller, his staff is ready for the All-Star Game crowds and beyond.

“Being down here next to Gainbridge is fantastic,” Fuller said. “We have such a vibrant area around us, so much to do. Right now, we have an ice rink, soon it’ll be basketball courts. Being right next to Gainbridge right in the heart of all the action is just fantastic.”

The actual space is three stories and 30,000 square feet. An event space is located on the upper floor. A speakeasy is located in the basement and a steakhouse is located on the middle floor.

Fuller claims that developing the idea has been fantastic.

“Building this team has been nothing short of a dream come true for me,” Fuller said. “Growing up in Indiana I always dreamed I would do something this big and it’s finally coming true.”

According to officials, the name Commission Row is a reference to a previous moniker for Delaware Street, which was known for its commerce in the middle of the 19th century.

The restaurant will open for business Monday at 10 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
