To those who have never been to the Des Moines / West Wes Moines area or who may have some preconceived ideas about Iowa, "Des Moines Nightlife" may sound like an oxymoron. However, the truth is that Des Moines & West Des Moines plus the surronding area has a fairly lively night time scene and is full of all types of bars, live music clubs, nightclubs, theaters and restaurants with a flair that is unmatched anywhere else in Iowa.

Some of our favorites are listed below!

 

Vaudeville Mews 
212 4th St,
Des Moines, IA

Aura
2700 University Ave
Governer's Square
West Des Moines, IA
(515) 440-2872
 
Unprecidented style, service, and atmosphere put Aura ahead of the rest in the Des Moines area. This new club has quickly become one of Des Moines' most popular. Aura has a good sized dance floor and seating area, but even these become packed as the big crowd comes near 11. In addition to the live DJ Aura also offers booths off to the side which are reserved for groups ordering bottles. They also have table service, and the drink menu consists of a page each for red wine, white wine, mixed drinks, and martini's. Aura's attention to detail and commitment to style make it a must see when in Des Moines. The tables are lit by candle light, the drinks are garnished, and the service excellent.
