    I like murphys in urbandale. Nice and quiet and they have some really good beers on tap.

    People's Court downtown is the best live music venue of its size I have ever been to.

    I also enjoy Zimms just for hanging out, and don't forget AKs Beaverdale.

    I like People's court as well but every time I've been there (3 times) it's been completely empty.

    House of Bricks is my #1. GT Lounge is good too. Murphy's in Urbandale is good as well.

    Re: Favorite Bar Des Moines area

    For those of you who haven't found Shorty's yet downtown, you should check it out. During the day and early evening you can get in by going into the grocery store on Court Ave. It is located in the basement. After hours, you will have to go around back - there is door that is unmarked that will take you down some stairs into the bar.

    It is very chill and they always have some decent food and very good drinks. Try a Manhattan.

    Luckily, I think they're all brother bars? A friend's cousin is the part-owner in each of them.

    I love these bars too. Bait shop is owned by them too.
