The former Drink location at 26 5th St. N. will soon be reborn as Wellman’s Pub. The new location will be the third location for the Iowa-based Wellman’s. The original location in Des Moines opened in 1982 added a second location in West Des Moines in 2010.
A manager at the original location confirmed that Wellman’s would move into the former Drink space, but declined to say more. The Journal has contacted Wellman’s ownership and will update this story as information becomes available.
