Where to Eat and Drink

The best places to grab a bite and a beverage

Birba Restaurant

The Palm Springs dining scene has become a force to be reckoned with—there’s no need to shelter in place at your hotel for a memorable meal in stylish surroundings. A prime example is Workshop Kitchen + Bar, which has been an area favorite since 2011.

With its modern American menu, driven by local and seasonal products, and James Beard Award–winning interior design, it has become an essential dining destination. Adjacent to Workshop Kitchen, and operated by the same crew, is Truss & Twine, a sleekly industrial spot for cocktails and small plates.

And speaking of cocktails, tiki culture lives proudly on at Bootlegger Tiki, located in the same spot as the original Don the Beachcomber; it’s a great place to get your rum on.

For alfresco dining don’t miss charming Birba, featuring creative pizzas, pastas and cocktails; Copley’s, Cary Grant’s former guesthouse, now a romantic spot for innovative American cuisine; and FARM, where you can start your day in a lovely, flowered patio, tackling some seriously ridiculous French toast. On Friday and Saturday nights, FARM also serves a five-course, prix-fixe dinner.
