Two popular Court Avenue Bars are closing before the end of the month. The Exchange and Beer Can Alley are both closing November 26th. The date of the closing is before the building they are housed in at 216 Court Avenue, undergoes an alcohol permit review.
The bars in the building have been under scrutiny after a report in the Des Moines Register reported numerous police calls to the building in recent years.
The bars will be open for the "biggest party night of the year," next Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving.
It is unclear if the bars will re-open in another location.
