When I first heard the name of this place, I thought it was a barber shop. Turns out it is actually a nice salon with young, trendy girls doing hair. I've had my eyebrows waxed there but never a haircut. The place has kind of an industrial look to it but is kind of cool and contemporary at the same time. I liked that I was able to get my eyebrows waxed in a back room away from other customers.
This is more than just a typical tanning salon. The decor is very upscale with nice leather couches in the waiting area. The only problem is often times you have to wait before being able to tan. The beds are nice along with the rooms.
This is more than just a gym with a few treadmills. Since they have remodeled in the last year, this place has really been upgraded. They offer classes, morning and evening along with some weekend ones to. They also have personal trainers and contests that can help you lose weight. Very nice staff as well.
Even if you don't know what the special is, you will not go wrong! Their sandwiches are out of this world! It gets very busy in there over lunch and sometimes there isn't even a seat. The chocolate cookies are a favorite of mine because they are always warm and fresh. The cheeseburger chowder is also another good option. Remember to bring cash or you will be hitting up the ATM that they have in the store.
I think this place has pretty good food actually. My problem is the terrible kareoke on weekend nights. After about 9pm, this place fills up with 21 year olds that are dancing and singing kareoke. If you are cool with that, you will like it. I have enjoyed dining there on a random night when I want something quick and good. The quesadillas are very good.
Since this place was taken over by new ownership (the people that own Drink, I believe) it has really turned into a different bar. The menu is different and I can't say for the better. Yes, they did add fries...I had a poor experience one Saturday when the owner was sitting on the patio at a table next to us reaming his waitress. Very poor management in my opinion. The patio, however, is one of the best in Des Moines! Check it out for an after dinner drink in the summer.
This bar has it's regulars but it has a great big square bar which is nice for big groups to hang out. It also has plenty of tables to sit down at. It's a good lunch spot as well as a quick bar food dinner night. The burgers are delish!
This place has decent decor but the food was terrible, the service was even worse. There are so many better mexican resturants in the Des Moines area...drive to find one instead of going here. They do bring you a free ice cream for dessert though...still not going back.
This is a nice bar/resturant. Food is along the lines of a bar menu but it's nicer than just your average greasy sports bar. It has a good atmosphere with a nice bar area.
This is an upscale resturant. Somewhat over priced for what you get. The atmosphere is very calming and somewhat dark. The food was very good the times that I have been.
