At Hello, Marjorie Creative, cocktails, craft beer & wine are served in a chill space decorated like a ’70s-era living room. Hello, Marjorie has swiftly become a fixture of the Des Moines cocktail scene. Despite being only five years old, its vast lounge is filled with deep green leathers, classic lampshades, and portraits of Marjorie (the owner’s grandmother). The famed neon sign with the Jack Kerouac quotation, “The sexiest females in the world, reside in Des Moines,” may be the town’s most Instagrammable location. It’s similar to drinking in your grandmother’s cellar if your grandmother was Elizabeth Taylor. This cocktail contains whiskey, apricot liqueur, demerara, and smoked apple bitters. Hello, Marjorie is an experience-focused bar in the heart of downtown Des Moines, Iowa. Cocktails, beers, and damn fine times.
What a remarkable establishment! This elegant yet informal facility in the heart of Downtown Des Moines was the ideal setting to bring our out-of-town friends. Perfect for a variety of drinkers of any age. Our mixologist was terrific and one of the most knowledgeable and personable guys. He had a passion for his customers and mixing up their drink of choice, just as I imagine someone would expect from the era this establishment portrays.
