With a menu that will have your tastebuds dancing, this vintage dining outpost draws inspiration from La Quinta’s iconic heritage as a celebrity hotspot. Rewinding the clock to the 1930s, DSRT CLUB pays homage to the OG eatery, Desert Club, that once catered to upscale patrons as a glamorous supper club. Checkerboard tiles and palm-patterned wallpaper exude nostalgic throwback vibes, while swanky additions, like neon signs and marble textiles, create an alluring and contemporary feel. When it comes to the kitchen, DSRT CLUB is all about commemorating classics while adding modern California flair.
