Reed's Hollow takes over former Tally's space in Beaverdale


Fans of Tally’s in Beaverdale will soon have a new excuse to belly up to the bar there. The restaurant that closed last July is being converted into Reed's Hollow, a lounge and restaurant from the owners of the Gas Lamp.


Co-owner James Wilson says the entire space is getting a whole new look. Six local beers will be on tap in a custom tap tower built for the space. Find 110-year-old salvaged barn wood throughout.

“It’s going to be a warm lounge with bad ass food,” Wilson said.

While the rumor mill churns over who the new chef might be, Wilson says guests should expect brunch, maybe lunch and definitely dinner.

Wilson says the name Reed's Hollow comes from two historic places in Des Moines; Reed’s Ice Cream, which was on East Grand Avenue near the state fairgrounds, and "hollow" for the Beaverdale coal mine that lasted about 10 years in the early days of the neighborhood.

Look for an opening in the first or second week of February.
