About The Project

Opened in downtown Des Moines in May 2014, MALO is Des Moines’ destination for Latin cuisine. From classic Havana cocktails to inventive Mexican dishes, MALO celebrates all the flavors of Latin America.

MALO is located in the historic Fire Station No. 1, a renovated art deco building owned and operated by the Des Moines Social Club.

Tesdell Electric was proud to be a part of this unique project in the heart of downtown Des Moines. Highlights from the project include LED lighting controlled by a Lutron LCP dimming panel allowing the customer to fine-tune custom light levels for lunch and dinner services, as well as some very custom chandeliers!
