Our Story

The Hulman-George family legacy lives on and the restaurant pays tribute to Anton “Tony” Hulman Jr., who purchased the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in 1945 to prevent the track from closing after being on a four-year hiatus after World War II. The family maintained the property until 2020 when it was sold to the Penske Corp. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway remains an iconic landmark to this day with thousands of attendees flocking to it each year for “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing”.

The Hulman Restaurant lets guests experience the Circle City’s rich history intertwined with Hotel Indy’s modern luxury and charm. The Hulman family chose to continue their legacy at Hotel Indy where we pay tribute to the Speedway with intentional nods throughout the space like checkered tile of the floor and the rounded elements of the design. In the famous words of Tony Hulman said before every running of the Indy 500, “Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines” and your dining experience.
