A new, intimate cocktail bar is opening in the East Village this holiday season.

  • Do Not Disturb is a chill hangout space where you can listen to vinyl all nightlong, said Nick Tillinghast, a partner with Des Moines Does Things. It's inspired by Japanese listening bars.

Details: The 1,200-square-foot bar will serve simple, classic cocktails and plenty of Negronis and Highballs.

  • Expect food pop-ups with local chefs after the bar opens.
  • Marv's and Vinyl Cup Records are partners in the effort and will help spin tunes.

The big picture: Des Moines Does Things, the hospitality group behind the bar, is making a big splash in Des Moines' night life scene, opening four craft cocktail spots in the last five years.

  • It operates Hello, Marjorie, Bellhop, Hello Darling and the new Secret Admirer bar.
