Tunes on the Terrace

Live Music at Café Baratta's

Our live music series, Tunes on the Terrace, takes place every Friday afternoon from 11:30am-1:30pm during May, June, and July on the third floor terrace of the State Historical Building. As part of our ongoing partnership with the Iowa Arts Council, the series promotes and supports local musicians. Take your lunch on the terrace at Café Baratta’s and enjoy live music from up-and-coming artists as well as local favorites. With views of the State Capitol and downtown Des Moines skyline, this little lunch spot in the East Village is the perfect afternoon getaway. Just remember to save room for dessert!

Calling Des Moines Musicians

If you’re a musician in the Des Moines area (or are willing to travel), we’re now booking for our 2019 Tunes on the Terrace series. In the past, we’ve welcomed artists from the immediate area as well as cities on the edge of the state. If you call Iowa home (or simply love it as much as we do), we’d love to have you at Tunes on the Terrace!
