Live Music

We LOVE Live Music and it sounds cool in the bar. Patio sets or even a parking lot party is feasible…  Contact us through FB and convince us why it would make sense for us to host you or your band.  We are also open to hosting jam sessions.

Where are we located?

We are located just .2 miles from the Inter-Urban Trail that connects Beaverdale to Trestle to Trestle and Neal Smith Trail. Just to the North of the Hy-Vee on MLK and just south of Taco Casa in Des Moines.

Our address is 2506 Post St – which is the self-proclaimed shortest street in Des Moines.  Head west out of the bar and you’ll run right into the VA Hospital.

Looking for a short ride from downtown?  The Triangle Tap is an easy 5 miles trail ride from the East Village with a couple bridge stop options and our friends at Captain Roy’s along the way!
