Best Bars & Restaurants in Palm Springs

Whether you’re visiting Palm Springs for weekend 2 of Coachella, or simply just for a nice Spring getaway, there is so much more to a great weekend trip than just pool parties (although let’s be real, pool parties are awesome). See here for some of our favorite bars and restaurants in Palm Springs.


Sherman’s Deli & Bakery

Looking for kosher food in the middle of the desert? You’re in luck! Sherman’s serves all the traditional favorites, including thick-cut pastrami and a matzo ball soup so yummy you’ll be tempted to order it on 90-degree days. There’s always a line, and unlucky ones will have to wait outside in the sun, so try to hit this spot early in the morning or just before closing.

Bootlegger Tiki

Looking for a tiny bit of island living in the desert? Bootlegger Tiki packs a big punch with understated tiki decor, a well-curated menu of tropical drinks and knowledgeable, friendly bartenders. Behind a set of towering wooden double doors is a petite, narrow room with booths on the left and a long wooden bar on the right. The cocktails combine tiki classics like a Painkiller with more modern offerings tailored to the desert heat—try anything with cucumber.

Cheeky’s Palm Springs

Cheeky’s is a Palm Springs institution. Yes, there’s always a line, and yes, it’s always a bit of a scene, but this place has been churning out consistently fresh and inventive breakfast and brunch fare for years, and is a favorite of both visitors and locals. The place is known for its drool-worthy bacon flight, custard-style scrambled eggs and house-made pastries and sausages—as well as a spicy bloody Mary.
