About Us

The Operating Room is a local, family owned, Iowa-based business that has been in Business since 2017.  We started in West Des Moines, Iowa having a love of arcade games and pinball.  Pinball is close to our heart and you will find a great selection in each location.  We offer a unique twist to corporate events, private parties, family fun and the local nightlife scene.  Each location is decorated with hand drawn medical art that was done exclusively by local physicians and scientists. In two of the locations there are even real operating room lights over the bar and plenty of fun little hidden gems to discover.

We partnered with Fridley Theaters in 2018 because of their impeccable quality, service and state of the art IMAX theater in Waukee.  Two locally owned and operated businesses proudly serving our community together.
