whos coming to The Blazing Saddle
  • Went there last Saturday night. Had a fun time. Good drinks, good music. It's best to get there earlier in the night though (before midnight even) as it turns into a pumpkins sometimes around that time. Sure, there were people there that are old and overweight, but there were also a good number of guys there who were hot at a variety of ages.

  • Probaply the oldest Gay bat in Des Moines. If you are travelling through the great state of Iowa put this place on your list.Great bartenders with out attitudes. Great drinks seriously...YOU allways Get a double and the happy hour specials are great.It gets real frisky late in the evening. The great part is there are at least 3 other gay bars in the same area worth walking to.Oh you will get drunk and you will get laid plenty of butched up dudes.

  • This bar is on 5th street not 6th. Even the phone book is wrong.

    Otherwise it's a GREAT hangout. Good crowd, great drink prices, very casual and fun.
