It's the worst venue ever. I did not get into the show until it was 2/3's over and missed the band I payed $30 to see. DO NOT GO TO THIS VENUE!
I love the Val Air Ballroom! This week will be the 4th time I've seen a concert there. I always look forward to going.
Val Air is one of my favoite places in the Des Moines area. They have almost all of the big heavy metal shows in the area. The place is too large for smaller shows but too small for arena shows.
There is an open floor and a seated area off to the side next to the bar
They have a box office so you can avoid wasting your money on Ticketmaster!
i think that the val air ballroom is a good place i myself have been there 2 times once for the Insane Clown Posse concert and again for the Ying Yang concert it was a blast i advise u to go there
This place is funny. It's a roller rink that has a stage on the side. For bigger shows, they build a bigger stage on the end. The bar is small and can be hard to get a drink. It's just not really a venue at all.
But, would I go again? Of course, because they seem to be the venue bringing in the acts I listen to.
Head to Val Air for an awesome venue for any show!
Val Air is the place to be! Awesome shows! Good beer!
Go to Val Air for the best in any intimate expierence with music, far cry from an arena feel, gets you close to the band.
They charge $5 to park. Lame!
I know it kinda looks like a over-sized barn, but you need a building this big to handle all the rock! Hey, it's better than being in a stuffed concert hall...
$5 parking fee, black keys a.c. broke and they brought out only 2 floor fans (hot as hell), 13 degrees outside with an hour and a half wait for dropkick murphys..new owners, figure it the Eff out! Grr
Val Air Ballroom... My home away from home. I LOVE this venue!
As far as size goes, you can't beat Val Air. Not too small, not too big. Draws some good shows too.
Enjoy a drink now and then...
In the summertime... Shorts, T-shirt, Baseball cap. It is HOT!
Hey, guys! Enjoy the Metro's worst bathroom while you're here!
For such a small venue, it takes far too long to get in. Leaving patrons standing in 15 degree temps for over an hour after the doors open is inexcusable.
Worst concert experience ever b4 it even started!!! 7:00 show, let in @ 9:00 with 15 degree temp!!!!!
The line for the right entrance was much shorter and moved much faster. Still waiting in the cold was no fun.
