Weekly Events at Nightingale Cocktail

At Nightingale Cocktail, no two nights are the same. Every week, we host a variety of events featuring a wide range of music and a completely different vibe. Pick a night that's tailor-made for your particular style, or step out and experience something new—while enjoying the same fun, upscale vibe regardless of day. Unless noted, events are 21+ and ID is always required.

Caliente Thursday

Looking for something to spice up your Thursday night? Look no further! Cliente Thursdays is Des Moines' best Latin infused dance event. Bring a partner and hit the dancefloor with a mix of Salsa, Bachata, and Reggaeton hits or come solo and meet, mingle, and dance with a fun and friendly crowd. Once you've worked up a sweat, enjoy a handcrafted cocktail and cool down on our luxurious patio.

Doors open at 6PM with free entrance before 9PM. | 21+ with Valid ID

Funkin' Fresh Friday Happy Hours

Those time-to-start-the-weekend vibes happen every Friday from 5-9pm at Nightingale Cocktail.

Des Moines’ best DJs spin everything from classic Motown tracks to current funk-infused hits while our bartenders prepare Des Moines’ best cocktail menu. Each week features a $5 signature cocktail, no cover charge, and complimentary bar snacks. After work, after dinner, or as the warmup for our late night events, this is your destination for good times.

All 80's Happy Hour

Remember when MTV really was music television? We do too! Enjoy those classic hits from the 80's that take you back to an era of big hair, acid washed jeans, and synth driven pop music. Sip on $3 mixed drinks, house infusions and domestic beer all while enjoying one-of-a-kind ambiance!
