Our Favorite Palm Springs Restaurants & Bars

Although you may find that it's hard to extract yourself from Palms at Park, when you do venture out, consider our picks for best restaurants in Palm Springs, below. They're all within minutes of your Palms at Park villa.

Truss & Twine

This uptown newcomer knocks it out of the park as far as cocktails and ambiance are concerned. If you're looking for colors and patterns, this is not the space for you. Truss & Twine is a dark, minimal and absolutely stunning spot to enjoy carefully crafted cocktails and inventive food. If you're hungry, this may not be dinner.

SEYMOUR'S

Nestled in a private and semi-secret room within Mr. Lyons is Seymour's, a gorgeously designed cocktail spot with friendly service and a speakeasy vibe. This is the perfect first stop of the night, whether you're dining at Mr. Lyons or not. When you enter Mr. Lyons, make a hairpin right turn after the host stand and pull back the curtain.

Cheeky's: Worth The Wait for Brunch

Cheeky's: Worth The Wait for Brunch

CHEEKY'S PALM SPRINGS

Ask locals and visitors alike and all will say that Cheeky's is the best brunch in town. There are no reservations and the waitlist is "self serve" so just walk up and write your name on it. Our favorite trick is to send one person swing by on the early side, lounge by the pool and head over once the waiting period has expired. It's worth it. The cheesy eggs and breakfast quesadilla are truly out of this world. The bloody marys are not bad either! :)

JOHANNES

An upscale Austrian restaurant may not be what you would expect in a desert town, yet Johannes gets everything right from service to unbelievable schnitzel and has rightly earned it's position as a culinary anchor in Palm Springs. If you're not up for the whole nine yards, consider happy hour where mini-schnitzels are served at the bar.
