Gaming bar and lounge set open in Des Moines

The final touches are being put to the Ricochet game lounge and bar. The new spot is on the corner of 4th and Walnut downtown — with vibrant hues. “We have seven ping pong tables, we have four foosball tables, two pool tables, several darts, we have skeeball,” said Brad Argo, Ricochet’s co-owner. It was not an easy road to open the new location. From pandemic hurdles to supply chain problems – the day they would finally welcome customers seemed to be getting further and further away. “Actually, two years after we started, we’re finally in this space. This space has been empty for 20 years,” Argo said. The original Ricochet was housed in the East Village before moving to this location. Argo had held onto the site for a few years before construction could begin inside three months ago. “So we can talk to the owner of the building and say we can pause the project and they were nice enough to say yes. As soon as we felt things start to open up, we pressed the green button and started the build out,” he added. Ricochet will open to the public on January 10. They have a full bar and customers can pay by the hour to play a wide variety of games. Hoping to provide a different experience for Des Moines entertainment, Argo is eager to open the new location. “We hope this is a place where people can get together with friends and have real fun times during games,” said Argo.
