Downtown Des Moines has grown into a business and cultural center that consistently receives national attention. In 2014, Fortune named Des Moines the #1 city with an up-and-coming downtown and Politico wrote an in-depth report on how Des Moines went from “dull” to “cool.” Des Moines is attracting a broad spectrum of people because the city holds something for just about everyone, which the city’s many recent national media mentions illustrate.

For Efficient Living
I think what’s happening here is hugely encouraging…. It makes things possible: performances, exhibitions and all that, which can provide an essential venue for all the creative folks around here—and their audiences. But it’s also what it says, a social place where folks can come in contact with people they never ordinarily would meet. Worlds in collision.
For Great Food and Nightlife
Award-winning martinis at The Lift, locally sourced shared plates and craft cocktails at RoCA, attitude-free French delectables at Django, and inventive Latin American cuisine at Malo are just a few of the abundant choices in the downtown neighborhood. If you’re in a more casual mood, you can enjoy an undead-themed burger at Zombie Burger + Drink Lab or kick back with the local crowd at The Royal Mile. The choice is yours.
