Drinks Are Served With Colorful Twisty Straws At Bellhop, A 1960s Inspired Iowa Tavern

During the 1950s and 1960s, there was one trend on everyone’s mind – the tiki bar! These quirky, tropical-inspired retreats served sweet drinks in over-the-top mugs alongside an assortment of Polynesian-inspired food. Some were bustling family restaurants, others were classic dive bars – but eventually, they all seemed to fade away. By the 1990s, this offbeat brand of American restaurant was rarely seen – but it lives on today in Des Moines! Bellhop, a unique tiki bar in Iowa, keeps the tradition alive with a collection of hand-mixed drinks served with some of the craziest straws around. You’ll be able to pair your drinks with a menu of over-the-top pub grub. So turn back the clock to the 1960s and embrace the tiki craze as it roars back to life in Des Moines!
