Gene's

Named for notable Iowa alum Gene Wilder, Gene’s celebrates the actor’s most memorable (and hilarious) decade — the 1970s. This rocking indoor-outdoor bar features the era’s signature décor, with stained glass lamps, lots of knotty pine, macramé and a beaded curtain for good measure. Kick back with pals in a booth and enjoy downhome cocktails. Right on the Ped Mall, our retro retreat in downtown Iowa City serves up drinks and classic American dishes with a youthful spin.
