Our 100 favorite bars


How many Des Moines-area bars have you actually visited? Are you a wanderer of watering holes or a nightlife newbie?

It’s not hard to find a good drink in the metro. In fact, the hardest part is probably choosing where to start your night on the town. With hundreds of options, there’s a drink, style, theme, feature, activity and special for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a quiet place to take a date, somewhere to let your inner Beyonce out behind an open mic, or just a place to leave your memories behind — we’ve got you covered.

We can’t possibly list every single bar in the area — and you probably wouldn’t want to read it if we did — but we did make a list of 100 that we like. Grab a pen and check off where you’ve been, then check your score at the end to see how well you know your local establishments. Bottoms up! Download the guide HERE!
