Going Up: The MO Friend Tower Bar Daytime Experience

MO Friend and Insider-level members can attest―having daytime Tower Bar access adds a whole new level (no pun intended) to the Momentary experience. While the Tower Bar opens to the general public at 5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday, MO Friend and Insider-level members get to enjoy the perks of the Tower Bar by themselves from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (including Sundays when the Tower Bar is closed to the public!). This means enjoying high-flying, daytime views of Bentonville, complimentary coffee, tea, and snacks, and personal space to get some work done, enjoy a stylish change of scenery, clear your headspace, or work on a personal project. 

Here’s what a day in the life of a MO Friend member could look like:

10 a.m. The Momentary opens, and the Tower Bar opens to MO Friend and Insider-level members. Head to the Box Office in the Lobby to check out a key card for Tower Bar access. Take a few minutes to browse the Momentary Shop for MO merch or a neat gift, like a t-shirt designed by artist Sarah Cain. Did we mention members also get 10 percent off Momentary Shop purchases?

10:30 a.m. Head to the Tower entrance, scan your key card in the elevator, and head up to the Tower Bar. Return your key card to the bowl when you enter.


10:45 a.m. Help yourself to a coffee or tea drink from the coffee station and pick up a light snack for that mid-morning tummy rumble. 

Grab a complimentary coffee and change up your meeting location or catch up with a friend!

11 a.m. Find the perfect spot to get some work done. Do you prefer a window seat in a plush chair with lots of sunlight? Or do you prefer a seat at the bar? Take some time to get work done, read, journal, take a call, or mingle with fellow members. 

1 p.m. Stretch your legs! Grab lunch at a place within walking distance of the Momentary, whether its 8th St Market, the Snack Lab food truck, Blu Fish House, Meteor Cafe, or TABLE Restaurant―there are plenty of yummy options!

2 p.m. Take some time to head downstairs and discover contemporary art in the Galleries. You might just find inspiration in whatever you’re working on. 

3 p.m. Grab another key card at the Box Office and head back up to the Tower Bar to wrap up your work day. You know the drill.

4 p.m. Happy hour starts! Enjoy early access to drinks before the Tower Bar opens to the public at 5 p.m. Order a craft cocktail, mocktail, or bourbon you can’t get anywhere else in Arkansas from our expert Tower Bar-tenders. You really can’t go wrong with the cocktail menu. Each drink is a new adventure. 

After that, enjoy the views as they fade into nighttime or explore other spaces in the Momentary!
