Noce - Jazz Cabaret is a wedding and event venue in the historic downtown of Des Moines, Iowa. An atmospheric and elegant space, this venue doubles as a jazz club when it’s not hosting stylish wedding parties. Conveniently located less than half an hour from the Des Moines International Airport, the venue is easily accessible to out-of-town guests. Its sultry ambiance will entice couples and their guests to grab a cocktail, relax at the bar, and enjoy the most romantic of celebrations.
Facilities and Capacity
The cabaret’s beautifully-renovated private backstage can host a variety of events, from an intimate ceremony to an energetic reception party. The 2,500-square-foot space can hold 180 seated guests, while the front area can be rented for larger parties of up to 300. Noce is situated in a neighborhood that was once primarily factories and warehouses, and the venue’s design pays homage to its industrial heritage. The cabaret still uses its original hardwood floors, while brick walls and large windows add to the retro charm. One wall has been converted into a chalkboard, adding a more modern accent to the space.
