The Nite Hawk Bar and Grill is the number one bicycle hang-out in Slater. From its food, cold beer, watching a football game or outdoor live music, you'll have a hard time pedaling past this cyclist's hang out.  Stop by and check us out!

Just steps from the High Trestle Trail!

Slater resident, Shawn Birdsall along with an initial partner unveiled the new establishment in March 2012 by transforming the old Slater City Hall into a fresh neighborhood hot spot with an intimate bar and restaurant and expansive outside bar and patio.

The Nite Hawk Bar and Grill is conveniently located adjacent to the Heart of Iowa bike trail and the High Trestle Trail, under the water tower at 105 Greene Street.

The Nite Hawk features an indoor and outdoor bar where patrons can dine, drink, or come in and relax with a cold beer after a long ride, or join us for an afternoon game. With eight large screen TVs in both the inside and outside bar; ample seating, pool table, electronic darts, buck hunter, golf and bowling games, an ATM, and juke box, or an open concert on the patio, the Nite Hawk offers something for everyone.

Current sole owner Shawn Birdsall, takes pride in the full-service and take out menu offering broasted chicken, pizza, burgers, appetizers, etc. Noon specials all of which are homemade (down to peeling and mashing our own potatoes) and evening specials along with a variety of homemade desserts are a daily occurrence. Keeping the menu new and changing is our goal with seasonal specials and good ol’ home cooked comfort food.

The Des Moines Register mentioned the Nite Hawk’s Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes as a “must have”, so stop in for lunch on Friday and try it out! Daily drink specials and our killer Bloody Mary’s are also available daily.

Additional amenities include ample bike parking, an air pump on hand, as well as an igloo cooler filled with ice water to refill water bottles.

In addition to bicycling events the Nite Hawk also hosts bike night, classic car night, frequent live entertainment, and community charity events. Winter activities are hosted for the avid snowmobilers as well as new events each season. Check out our selection of t-shirts, hoodies, hats, koozies and bandannas too!

We aim to not only make the Nite Hawk a fun place to stop, but a memorable one as well. (source)
