The Only Floating Bar In Iowa Is Ready To Help Throw Off Your Equilibrium
In a nearly three-hour drive from Davenport, you'll find the great state of Iowa's only floating bar.
It's called Fleetwood at Saylorville and is located in Polk City, which is about 3 hours away from Davenport.
It's located next to the Polk City marina and the thing that makes it different than anywhere else where you could grab a drink is that Fleetwood has a floating patio that sits on the water. Trying to walk after a few cold ones on a floating patio sounds like a comedy sketch waiting to happen. I bet you could actually walk in a straight line then.
It just opened last year on the water and gave new meaning to the term "waterfront". If you don't want to sit outside, the bar at Fleetwood does have a full indoor dining area you can hang out in. They frequently have live music on the patio for you to enjoy while you sip on a summery cocktail and munch on fried calamari.

They do have specials regularly (I saw a past one on their Facebook for $1 Jello shots) and a food menu that ranges from basic bar snackage like fries, "pirate bites", and "party cove curds" to full-on meals (which justifies the extra drink) like their "bistro burger", "Polk City pulled pork", fish tacos, and so much more. Their drink menu has all kinds of seltzers, wines, beers, cocktails, and specialty drinks.
