About Palm Springs, CA Nightlife
The desert offers plenty to do after dark, whether you live for late-night dives or concerts by locally grown bands. Live music venues arguably steal the nightlife spotlight, but plenty of local watering holes and nightclubs keep everyone happy after hours in the Coachella Valley.
Downtown buzzes after hours with watering holes like Village Pub and Bar offering late night drinks and music. Nearby, the dance floors at Zelda's and Toucan's offer hours of high-energy entertainment.
Live music can be found at bars throughout the desert, including the Date Shed in Indio, Hamilton's in La Quinta and The Hood and Red Barn in Palm Desert. If you're looking for a late-night restaurant with flat-screens to watch the latest game or weekly line-dancing nights, look no further than Stadium House in Rancho Mirage. Also, the Tilted Kilt in Palm Desert is a popular place to catch a game over ice-cold drafts and hearty burgers; the kilt-wearing waitresses are easy on the eyes, too.
Finally, you haven't lived after hours in the desert until you've popped into Neil's in Indio for a round of karaoke. This western-themed desert institution has even attracted the likes of Keith Urban in years past.
