We’re the perfect spot for Hawkeyes – and their dogs! Pets stay free at Graduate Hotels.

We are proudly perched on the Ped Mall and a twenty-minute walk from Kinnick Stadium, just ‘cross the river from campus. We’re home team for Hawkeye games or a downtown caucus. The cafe is ripe for riffing on policy and opinion over cocktails and coffees and our bar is stocked with downhome vibes and tapped for fun.
