Backstage, our beautifully renovated private event room, is one of the most stunning rooms to host your next special event – whether it’s an intimate 20-person dinner, raucous  party or wedding. With 2,500 square feet to work with, our preferred partner Party On Des Moines will create the perfect setting for your event. Have someone else in mind? No worries, we can arrange for that!
