The Dining Companion and I made several stops on our recent travels around the Midwest. One of those stops took us to Des Moines, Iowa and The High Life Lounge. Readers of a certain age take a moment to think back to every rec room you ever hung out in as a youth. Got it? If you pictured your friends parent's basement, shag carpeting, beer signs and paneling you're spot on. That is the High Life Lounge in a nutshell.
The High Life Lounge is a throwback to every rec room in 60's and 70's America with a nod to the everyman neighborhood bar. This is a place where it's still possible to get a decent burger and a glass of beer for under ten bucks. Here, the food is as retro as the look. So walk on in, step up to the Formica topped bar, order a cold beer and a Spam sandwich and take a little trip back in time.
