If you're looking for a friendly gay bar in the Capital City then you've found it! The Blazing Saddle is the oldest gay bar in Des Moines and has been known as the Gay "Cheers" since we opened in 1983. The Saddle (as most people call it) is open 365 days a year without fail so you always have somewhere to go. We offer Happy Hour 2pm to 8pm every Monday through Friday and Charity Beer Busts every Sunday raising moneys for various non-profits and events. We have Trivia Night every Wednesday as well as Latin Nites and Drag Shows on Thursdays and Fridays and various Saturdays. Our motto is "Never a Cover and Always a Double" so come on in and enjoy.
