About Us

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.

Services Offered
Rental of Noce - Jazz Cabaret comes with access to the space from nine in the morning to midnight. The venue has about 25 chairs, three cocktail tables, and 100 folding chairs that couples are welcome to use. For additional seating and tables, outside vendors should be used. The team at Noce will assist with setup and cleanup, and can also provide an expert sound technician to help with the A/V equipment. A chalkboard artist is also available to rent for the day, and can write beautifully-calligraphed messages or draw designs on the chalkboard wall. The on-site bar provides custom cocktails, craft beer, and a curated wine selection for guests to choose from during the cocktail hour and reception. Bar staff comes with the venue, and the couple has the option of a full bar, cash bar, running tab, or ticket method. Catering is provided through the venue’s partnership with an outside caterer, or couples are welcome to choose their own. Event planning is also included through a partnership with a local event planner, who will ensure that couples’ big day runs smoothly. Parking is available on the street, or couples can add a valet service.

  • Can I give Noce 10 out of 5 stars? Kristen, Noce's event coordinator, is organized, gracious and boundlessly hospitable. She quite literally *saved* our wedding. I can't recommend her, and Noce, enough.
