When the Tilted Kilt reopened in late 2012, Palm Springs locals and visitors alike rejoiced for the return of one of the desert's most beloved establishments. The Tilted Kilt breathed new life into the local nightlife scene, and now the part restaurant, part sports pub and part bar has done so once again with the introduction of Tilted at Night, a new nightclub.

While the pub grub is solid (Think burgers, fish and chips and hearty, Irish-inspired entrées like shepherd's pie.) and the drinks are made with blissfully stiff pours, there's no denying that the scantily-clad waitresses (Kilt Girls) and their plaid outfits are another big draw for the Tilted Kilt.
But if all of this still isn't enough to convince you to visit "The Kilt," as locals call it, then perhaps the restaurant's new after-hours nightclub will. From 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Wednesdays through Saturdays, the Tilted Kilt transforms into Tilted at Night, a late-night lounge with live entertainment, DJs, a dance floor and all of the signature cocktails the Kilt is known for.
With cover bands playing your beloved '80s favorites and DJs mixing up the latest Top 40 hits, it's hard to resist getting down on the dance floor during Tilted at Night. Local entertainers like Mark Gregg and DJs like Bob Scatch are just a couple of the musical highlights you'll find at Tilted at Night.

Another highlight of a night at Tilted Kilt is the impressive drink menu. Beer drinkers can venture outside of their comfort zone with a beer cocktail like a loaded Corona (Corona with a shot of 1800 Silver Tequila), a Black and Blue (Guinness and Blue Moon) or a Cinn-a-Moon (Blue Moon with Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey, cranberry juice and lime sour).
Or you can go with one of the Tilted Kilt's famous shakers, which are cocktails served in mason glasses and shaken right at your tableside. The Pain Reliever (Kraken Black Spiced Rum, Cointreau, lime sour, piña colada mix and pineapple juice) is a classic must-try.
When it comes to shots, don't miss the Cinnamon Toast Crunch, a Fireball-based shot that tastes just like the sweet leftover milk from a bowl of the famed children's cereal.
Even if you're on a travel budget, don't worry: there's no cover for Tilted at Night. And with daily drink specials, you won't have to break the bank to party the evening away at the club. And if you happen to be struck with the late-night munchies, then Tilted at Night has you covered: food is served until 1 a.m.
If you're looking for a fun night of drinking and dancing in Palm Desert, Calif., then don't miss Tilted at Night on your next trip to the desert.
