Noce is a modern jazz club and cabaret established to present Des Moines with some of the greatest jazz music & theater from around the Midwest. With locally & nationally renowned live entertainment several nights each week in our cabaret lounge & rental space available to the community at large, Noce provides music lovers with an experience unparalleled in the state of Iowa. To complement our top-class performers, Noce features a jazz age cocktail bar, serving vintage and contemporary libations. In addition to our 100 seat cabaret lounge, we also feature a 2,500 sq. ft. rental space in the building that is available for events of every kind, from private dinners to full wedding receptions.
The Des Moines Big Band, a storied ensemble that goes back to the 1950s, has played with some of the greatest names in jazz, from legends like Clark Terry to some of the more local household names such as Scott Smith. Led by renowned trumpeter/arranger Dave Rezek, this organization is in residence at Noce on Wednesday nights.
The band often invites high school & college groups in to play during the set break. The first Wednesday of every month, though, the band plays their own full night highlighting the work of a different iconic jazz artist or composer.
