Sleek and Concrete

Workshop Kitchen + Bar

A post shared by Workshop (@workshopkitchenbar) on

Boasting modern architectural design, Workshop Kitchen + Bar, with its sleek, industrial interior, was retrofitted from a building constructed in 1926, which originally served as an art gallery before becoming Palm Springs’ first theater. Wood, concrete and blackened steel provide a contemporary edge, with cathedral-like, modern light fixtures over the bar and its main seating area, earning this spot the 2015 James Beard Award for best restaurant design.

Style On a Bun

Frankinbun

Tristan Gittens and his wife Candice Held opened Frankinbun, where classic hot dogs and contemporary sausages (including a vegan option) are served simply on freshly-baked buns or wrapped in waffles on sticks. The space is small, charming, and well known for its custom chinoiserie wallpaper, designed by Held, featuring their Frankinbun mascot, a hot dog in a bun. The design has become so popular that she’s created shirts to match.

Let’s Clink to Pink

The Pink Cabana at The Sands Hotel and Spa

Desert rose gives a fresh look to The Pink Cabana which is skillfully carried out in their booth cushions and napkins, and further set off by green leaf-patterned wallpaper, a vintage green and white floor tile and vintage green ceramic tile across the front of the long bar. The short-back bar stools are trimmed in brass as are the bar shelves which reflect against the bar-height-to-ceiling mirror, all creating an enjoyable retro ambiance reminiscent of a Palm Springs midcentury property.

Azucar is located inside the 1930s La Serena Villas hotel and provides multiple choices between dining in common spaces, in small, private villas on the property, by the poolside or up top on the rooftop patio, Sugar High—their special rooftop deck surrounded by the breathtaking San Jacinto mountains. The furnishings throughout the hotel and restaurant areas were hand-picked to be casual and comfortable and are positioned indoors and outdoors around fireplaces, the pool or within the private villas.

Grab a Table

Juniper Table in the Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs Hotel

As you enter the contemporary Kimpton, you will find one of Palm Springs’ newest restaurants, Juniper Table. It is set off from the lobby by multiple 12-foot panels of rectangular-shaped, white and clear panels of glass. Their excellent use of space creates a small, intimate environment, and its sunny indoor and contiguous outdoor seating is great for people watching.

Time to Dine

Previously Palm Springs’ first U.S. Post Office, this 1954 building has been transformed into an upscale, casual, eclectic dining space with a white interior, purposefully-positioned hot pink accents, recessed, mirror-backed shadow boxes and rooms with an occasional black accent wall. The seating varies from a white, tufted-button couch to Louis XIV ghost chairs, complemented by a unique assortment of fixtures arranged strategically in the center of the dining area.
