6555 University Ave in Windsor Heights, you see this:
That's just the beginning. Inside Front Row you can barely notice the wood paneled walls. That's because every space is covered in Hawkeye memorabilia. There are old basketball and football posters, autographed helmets and footballs, Nile Kinnick football cards and Dan Gable posters. The cooler holding the fifteen choices of domestic bottles is covered in Tigerhawks. This Hawkeye bar is literally everything Hawkeyes.
For Hawkeye game day Front Row opens its doors at eight am. I was told you may need to get there early, when kickoff comes the place is standing room early. And by that I mean standing chest to chest, which may be a good or a bad thing. If you decide to tailgate outside prior to the doors opening you'll be greeted with fresh omelets to hold you over to halftime. That's when they bring in some pizzas or hot dogs for their patrons. Did I mention that the food is free?
Front Row has a patio space that is equal in size to the interior. Both can hold a little over a hundred people, give or take. Outside on the patio you will find two flat screen TVs to watch the Hawks. Inside, there are also two large flat screens and each of the interiors booths have their own small television.
Beers one tap were Bud/Bud Light and Boulevard. For game days don't expect beer specials, unless its a tall boy deal for a couple of bucks. The prices of drinks are beyond reasonable to begin with, so don't plan on spending a fortune for a bottle of Fat Tire.
If you are interested in signing-up for one of Front Row's bus trips to a road game or just looking for more information you can check out the Front Row Facebook page.
