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.
