Bar for the best bar downtown. And might I add the cleanest. Finally a bar that I can actually go to the bathroom at without stepping through puke and.. ya know. Haha. Great music and great staff. They're always so much fun! 3 different levels to party on with different music on each almost makes it seem like you can hit multiple bars without even leaving! Love this bar for sure.

NEGATIVE STARS this place takes absolutely no covid precautions, the food is awful, drinks are too, but the best part? It's extremely homophobic!!!! I wouldn't wish my worst enemy to go here!

You won't go wrong bringing friends to a place like this. Never met a stranger in this bar.

I'd never visited this bar previously, but I definitely thought the bar gave quite a presentation. For as busy as this bar gets, the place was clean. All visible surfaces had a shine to them, showing that the owner/management definitely places a lot of attention on making sure they operate a clean establishment.The bar staff was friendly, polite, and ensured everyone was taken care of. Orders were placed and filled promptly and with professionalism. The drinks were well made, and generous in proportion.The DJ booth really shined. The individuals running the booth knew how to interact with the crowd, new how to keep things fun and interactive, and it really showed that they understood thier customers.If you are looking for a club style bar in Des Moines Court Avenue district, I would definitely add this bar to your places to visit.

Bartenders like to give you expired beer and tell you it’s fine if it’s within 6 months ?

I wanted to go to the bar with my boyfriend which we have gone to many times before and I was wearing a tank top (which many other people in the bar were wearing) and the POC door person checked my ID and said I was good to go and after my boyfriend was checked in he door person looked at me and glanced at my rainbow wristband then made up a rule that tank tops weren’t allowed and told me I had to leave. I will never visit this bar again and I will be sure to tell all my friends this place is a homophobic bar.


Amazing bar great staff. Our server Cyndi made amazing mixed drinks. Everyone had a great attitude and vibe.
