Who doesn’t want to have some fun while visiting Palm Springs? This is Hollywood’s playground, after all, and there are plenty of ways – lounges, bars and nightclubs, to name a few – to get your party on. If you don’t want to be out all night, Palm Springs has you covered on that front, too: plenty of nightlife hotspots open their doors and start the entertainment early, meaning you can enjoy a soulful lounge act or groove to your favorite cover band hits and still make it back to your comfy hotel room before bedtime.
In downtown Palm Springs, you’ll have plenty of options for early entertainment. Las Casuelas Terraza, one of the desert’s most beloved spots for authentic Mexican fare, features nightly live entertainment on its patio, while Thursday afternoons and evenings offer entertainment in all forms during the weekly Village Fest street fair. Heading toward the eastern end of the valley, you can enjoy dinner as a local musician sets the mood at restaurants like BluEmber, Sullivan’s Steakhouse and Cork Tree. If you feel like dancing, you can always cut a rug in Indian Wells at The Nest.
