    Bar Dress Code

    My friend was in town last night so I headed to downtown Des Moines to grab a beer. He wanted to go to some bar that had penny beers, I think it was the Kamodo Club. We headed down there, I was in a plain white T-shirt and another guy with us was in a red Nebraska T-Shirt. The bouncer would not let the guy with the Nebraska shirt in because it wasn't a local team, he couldn't turn his shirt inside out because then it would be a solid color t-shirt. I also could not get in because I had a solid colored t-shirt on.

    As we got a little upset and argued a little he told us that every bar downtown had the same dress code. I've been to almost every bar downtown and have never run into any dress code.

    Has anyone else seen a dress code downtown? I'm sure this dress code will stop me from going to the high class establishment called Kamodo.

    Re: Bar Dress Code

    A solid colored tshirt is a bad thing now?

    I went to a parochial elementary and high school, and all we could wear was solid colored shirts.

    But I have to side with the bouncer about the NU shirt.

    Not uncommon at all for night club type places.

    I guess there is a reason no one I hang out with wants to go there on the weekend.

    Re: Bar Dress Code

    Dress codes are fine for high class joints. But if a bar is letting skizzy's in anyway, they might as well drop the dress restrictions unless its offensive or fight provoking.

    That is exactly their reasoning, once again it is mostly for the weekends, it a Larry Smithson (club owner) thing.

    Re: Bar Dress Code

    I feared for my life when I took a chick home from there the one and only night I made an appearance. I'm suprised they said they had a dress code.
