Fashion / City Guide: Our Palm Springs Itinerary
For music lovers, festival season generally means gallivanting around an open field, basking in the blazing sun, and soaking up the sounds for hours (or days) on end. But for those of you feeling a bit more adventurous, we’ve rounded up a Palm Springs City Guide to quench your thirst. Check out our top 11 spots to hit on the festival circuit this year!
1800 E. Palm Canyon Dr.
Chow down at Iron Chef Jose Garces’ award-winning pintxos (aka the Basque-country version of tapas) restaurant located at The Saguaro. We’ve already put our order in for their to-die-for pulpo (that’s octopus!), classic gazpacho, and can’t-miss chocolate cake.
622 N. Palm Canyon Dr.
This 21-seat resto is known for its fresh, seasonal organic ingredients with a menu that changes weekly and one of the best brunches east of Los Angeles. We’ll be stopping by for the 5 variety-bacon flight (yes you read that right!) and house-made pastries.
149 South Indian Canyon Dr.
Well worth the wait, Tyler’s has juicy burgers that will leave LA folks realizing that there‘s an entire world of deliciousness outside of In-N-Out. Bring your cash, order the classic cheeseburger and prepare to be amazed.
50800 Seminole Dr. (Cabazon)
On your way out to the desert (before you hit the Cabazon outlets), make a quick pit stop at a prehistoric forest complete with the largest replicas of dinosaurs this side of the Ice Age. Your Instagram account will thank us.
4109 East Palm Canyon Dr.
Palm Springs locals peruse this shop across from the Park Hotel for the ultimate assortment in vintage clothing and accessories dating back to the 1930s. Label lovers will be pleasantly surprised by the assortment of luxury pieces but bargain hunters beware – the back room holds vintage gems at 75% off! Shop at your wallet’s risk.
101 Museum Dr.
Get your culture on at Palm Springs biggest art museum. From contemporary to ancient cultures to photography, this museum has a little bit of everything. Current exhibitions include “Beg Borrow and Steal” a predominately-West Coast artist feature from the Rubell Family Collection.
465 N. Palm Canyon Dr.
Costume jewelry may be our number one indulgence and at Route 66, there is more than plenty to go around. Mad Men costume designers, amongst other Hollywood heavyweights, stop by this outpost for jewelry from as far back as the 1920s and leave with baubles that are truly one-of-a-kind.
515 N. Palm Canyon Dr.
Refuel after (or even before) your neon nights at this coffee stop with not one, but TWO locations in Palm Springs. Get an extra shot of espresso for us!
1800 E. Palm Canyon Dr.
Our fav Palm Springs haunt! Kick back in the multi-colored rooms or by the rainbow-bright pool for a LA-getaway to appease even the strictest of budgets. Sip on something delicious at El Jefe (the on-site lounge) when you need a cool break from the hot desert sun.
1 Tramway Rd.
Take a breather – ride up to the peaks of Mt. San Jacinto where you can cool off (it’s up to 30 degrees colder than in the valley!) and check out some stellar scenic vistas.
415 South Belardo Road
If you’re going to pool-hop, the super-glammed out Viceroy is the perfect antidote to the laid-back vibe of the other hotels in Palm Springs. Did we mention they have three courtyard pools? This is Old Hollywood art-deco style at its finest.
