The beautifully designed Hotel Paseo, located just a block off of the main drag, is now home to a new restaurant called Larkspur Grill! This swanky hotspot offers a classic twist on modern California cuisine, boasting a fresh assortment of ingredients sourced from local farms. Diners can also enjoy live entertainment every Thursday-Saturday evening as they sip back, relax and nosh on dishes like Wagyu beef sliders, heirloom tomato burrata and three cheese tortellini.

In the past year, El Paseo has welcomed several restaurants, including Porta Via, which occupies the corner of El Paseo and Ocotillo Drive. The restaurant’s stunning interior features warm millwork, brass details and an immaculate terrazzo-tiled floor, but rest assured, the California-inspired menu has just as much wow factor. The Perfect Pint, a renovated Airstream trailer that sells ice cream, has also joined El Paseo, and visitors can expect to see new additions like Shorebird and Mole (coming soon!).

While El Paseo may seem like a destination solely for shopping and dining, the street has recently diversified its collection of businesses by welcoming No-H2O, a waterless car detailing service and a Coachella Valley Firebirds shop! Here, you can buy tickets and merchandise to support the Coachella Valley’s new AHL hockey team!

Local Insight: Don’t feel like walking from store to store? Park anywhere and hop aboard El Paseo’s reimagined Courtesy Cart, which offers free rides up and down the nine-block district!

 

DECORATE

With several upscale art galleries and showrooms, El Paseo has become a popular destination for home decor. And this year, it welcomed Interior Illusions, a destination for contemporary furniture, art, lighting and interior design. The addition of Interior Illusions to El Paseo’s many other home and design stores has created a Design District on El Paseo, and trust us, you’ll want to check it out for yourself.
