Home of the Halfie
Cooney’s Tavern is the anchor of North Beaverdale. An Irish bar since 1984 and every day since - it is the home of the coldest draught beer in the area.
Some say it is like a neighborhood “Cheers.” Others just call it their favorite bar. Anyway you see it Cooney’s is a casual neighborhood place. No pretense, no dress code, no fancy shots or Jagermeister, and no credit cards accepted. Just great service, cold beer and cocktails in a smoke free environment.
Cooney’s is a place to meet old friends and make new ones. Known for it’s “regulars” it is a great place for meeting friends, conversation and an occasional sporting event on one of the five televisions.
Friendly bartenders, fresh popcorn and an outstanding Bloody Mary make Cooney’s a place to call “Your Bar.” Open at 2 PM weekdays and noon on the weekend - closing time is 2 AM and Brian say’s “that’s it!”
For an enjoyable time check us out at 3708 Beaver Avenue, Des Moines, IA - that’s north Beaver Avenue!
Cooney’s is a locally owned tavern well known and loved by the Beaverdale neighborhood. Your host Brian Cooney is there to greet you at @ 2 PM on weekdays and noon on weekends and there to announce last call. As he is known to say....”remember, we’re open until 2.”
Known for an Irish Pub feeling you’ll be immersed in a history of politics, local places and Drake University Athletics as the walls are filled with hundreds of photos and news clippings. The street signs from Ireland and the stained glass windows from the old Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Beaverdale round out this wonderful atmosphere.
Heralded as one of “Cityview Magazine’s” Best Bloody Mary’s in Des Moines this unique blend is always served with a beer back. Fresh popcorn is served along with great conversation and an occasional fiery discussion about politics or sports.
