Would it even be a girls weekend without brunch? Start the morning with mimosas—you’re on vacation after all. Wilma and Frieda serves modern-day comfort food perfect for recovering from last night’s adventures. Inspired by classic home cooking, Wilma and Frieda’s menu puts a twist on traditional dishes, resulting in innovative offerings like the Chicken and Waffle Benny. If it’s lighter fare and an aesthetic ambience you crave, head to The Pink Cabana. The airy interior of this charming restaurant is adorned with vintage furnishings reminiscent of a ‘50s tennis club—the perfect setting to chow down on their Moroccan-inspired eats! For an alfresco experience and farm-to-table fare, check out Cheeky’s on Palm Canyon Dr. Everything on the menu is scratch-made with local ingredients! They even have a bacon flight with five flavors of savory strips. Need we say more?


Dress Up and Dine Out

Palm Springs has no shortage of upscale eateries for an evening out. Located in the Uptown Design District, Eight4Nine’s hot pink interior was practically designed for bachelorette dinners! Come here for an intimate experience with private dining options and an award-winning seafood menu. For a breezy desert evening, take a seat under the stars and string lights at Birba. The authentic Italian menu boasts a selection of handmade pastas that transport you to Tuscany. It’s the perfect spot for down-to-earth dining with a sophisticated feel. And if you’re craving margs and Mexican, Tac/Quila is the place to be. Known for artistic flavor combinations and charismatic cocktails, Tac/Quila’s menu is sure to please.



For the Slumber Party

Immerse yourself in the artistic culture of the city at Parker Palm Springs. Surrounded by fruit trees, herb gardens, white architecture and pops of bright color, there’s no shortage of photo ops at this boutique stay. For a resort-like feel, book a weekend at La Quinta Resort & Club. Home to season 16 of “The Bachelorette,” this sprawling and scenic resort is the perfect fit for a glitzy girls getaway. But if your girl gang favors a more tranquil hideaway, the light desert decor of La Serena Villas creates the most dreamy setting for a weekend of R&R. To be close to the night life, stay downtown at the Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs! With a rooftop pool and bar, The Rowan offers a more modern feel for a desert staycay. 


Girls’ Night Out

Dance the night away with live music every evening at The Nest. The glittering disco ball and jam-packed dance floor make this groovy local bar the perfect place to start the night. For an experience exclusive to Palm Springs, head to aircraft-inspired PS Air Bar to embrace your glamorous side in first class. If anyone from your bride tribe wants to meet their Miles Teller, it will be here. Seymour’s features an upscale, swanky vibe where the past blends with the present. Although less dancing, this tucked-away neighborhood bar is designed for sipping craft cocktails while engaging in some casual girl talk. Tailor Shop Bar hosts a similar experience, but it’s catered towards more elegant affairs with warm lighting, gold accents and dreamy designer cocktails.
