    Great venue that plays every time of music. Drinks are a little but expensive, but show tickets are always cheap.

  • Clayton M.

    Great venue to see a loud band like MOGWAI. Audiences for singer songwriters are disrespectful.

    Big fan of concerts? Head on over to Nitefall on the River, located at Simon Estes Amphitheater to see great live music. Slightly Stoopid & Atmosphere perform 8/4.

    Great beer selection for a music venue. Very fair prices. Sound is usually great.. But sometimes touring bands have bad sound-guys.

    Pretty cool just too drunk to know if I'm right

    Worst sound in Des Moines despite relatively decent sound system. Learn to mix!

    Bring cash! Smile like you mean it. Dance like no ones watching.

    Don't bother coming to a show here. Some of the rudest crowds in town. Will be loud and talk the entire show.. No respect.

    You can get Woolys very own beer on tap but it doesn't say what style...mystery beer! Is it a lager? Is it an ale? Noooo one knows
