  • I have been to the Val Air Ballroom for many concerts and dances and meetings. It is just North of the old Valley Junction Shopping District on 5th Street in West Des Moines. I have worked with other ...  more »
  • I went there for a concert. But I would not go there again. The acoustics were terrible. Missing the concert would have been a better use of my time and money.  more »
  • I'm seen some really good bands here and prices are fairly reasonable. Place isn't the best looking inside and the acoustics are bad, but Val Air breaks in entertainment that probably wouldn't show up...  more »

  • The bands were great, BUT it was very very cold. Management did not turn on the heat and BOTH men's bathroom were not working. So, I would dsay whoever is managing is not taking care of the place. Also, it needs a serious renovation.
  • It's old and it shows. It's quaint, but other than concert venues I don't know if it would be for everyone. I attended a company Christmas party without an open bar and the drinks were quite expensive. That said, it's a pretty large space and suitable for gatherings.
  • Paid for VIP, for the Magic Mike show tonight. When we got there they told us, that we had to pay an extra 10 dollars to sit in the front row, then they made us sit in cramped uncomfortable seats, which were so close together, that you are crammed up next to the people sitting next to you. Not happy at all and will not be coming back for future shows at this venue.
  • Perfect for indoor medium size events. It's ancient building with a lot of history.
  • Horrible experience. They didn't open the door till like 30 min. Later than when concert was supposed to start. It reaked like weed inside.place is old and dirty. Women bathrooms were dirty.nasty water all over the floor
