About Us

Inspired by the maxims that frame the high ceiling of this jewel  box style bank, Caucus Bistro encapsulates what it means to be an Iowan; to be "first in the nation."  The idea to convert this beautiful space into a wine bar/bistro began to take shape in 2004 and was realized in 2008 with the opening of the Ladora Bank Bistro.  Over the years, the bistro became one of Iowa's most treasured destination venues serving customers from around the world.  Now re-imagined as Caucus Bistro, our customers have the opportunity to eat, drink, and converse in an atmosphere that promotes and celebrates one of our country's most important political events; the Iowa Caucuses.  We are so pleased you chose to join us, and hope you enjoy this eclectic setting and perhaps make new friends.
