The Front Row: Home For Hawkeye Fans

October 4, 2009

Written by Jon Miller

If you are a Hawkeye fan living in the Des Moines metro area and have not been to The Front Row, you need to see it to believe it. This isn’t just an establishment that looks to pull in Iowa fans on game nights; this is THE Iowa sports bar in the Des Moines metro and they make no excuses for it.

The walls are covered with Iowa Hawkeye memorabilia, photographs & more. The owner, Clay Cook, is a dyed in the wool Hawkeye fan that loves the Hawks just as much as you do.

So never worry about which TV is going to show the Iowa game, or if you’ll have the sound for the Iowa games…The Front Row is ALL ABOUT Iowa’s games. Be sure to stop by each time the Hawks are on TV and again on Sunday’s for the NFL slate and their famous Bloody Mary bar. Also, check out Steak Night on Thursdays.
