xBk (ex-Brooklyn) is an homage to Brooklyn, NY and owner, Tobi Parks’, move to Des Moines, IA. The move was spawned by the desire to live in a city that was affordable, artist friendly, politically progressive and had a great quality of life. xBk is a declaration to working artists & musicians that they don’t have to be starving artists in an expensive city to find great performance spaces and creative communities.
xBk is a newly renovated state of the art, 250 capacity small performing arts venue located in Des Moines, IA dedicated to musicians, performers, and artists that strive to present adventurous and engaging work. We provide both our performers and patrons with a superior live arts experience. We are a destination venue for local and national performers alike that are seeking a small, intimate setting that is artist friendly in both its hospitality and technical specifications. We are dedicated to presenting compelling programming that will stick with you well after you’ve left the building.
