The Chamberlain Building was built in 1917 in what is now the Western Gateway of downtown Des Moines. It was originally built to house Taylor Automotive. The building has gone through many different changes since then, but the charm and craftsmanship has stayed the same. From the gorgeous tin ceiling to the original penny tile floor, this space is perfect for any event and occasion.

With over 30 combined years in the food industry, I’m confident that our staff can provide you with an exceptional experience.

With an amazing tin ceiling, visible brick, and a lovely balcony, we're sure you can find exactly the atmosphere you're looking for.

We have a great downtown Des Moines location, so you will be centrally located for all of the amazing hotels, restaurants, and shops Des Moines has to offer.
