King’s Highway Sparkles under the Stars - Visit Palm Springs

King’s Highway Sparkles under the Stars

King’s Highway at Ace Hotel & Swim Club has always been a hip-casual spot, and even with the indoor dining restrictions, that’s not changed. In fact, it’s even better. You can now relax by the pool, sip a classic cocktail, and admire your mid-century surroundings under the stars.

Palm Springs is known for a relaxed retro vibe with incredible weather and mountain views that makes alfresco dining such a natural fit. And now King’s Highway has created an incredible outdoor patio dining experience poolside that will make any local or visitor smile. Imagine sipping your cocktail poolside as the sun slowly sets and the sound of relaxing music coming from locally curated entertainers. You know you’ve arrived in Palm Springs.

The new elevated dinner menu is elegant, yet stops short of fussy. To begin, try to Field Peas Hummus with black garlic, good olive oil, celery leaf, and fried chickpeas. So fresh with crisp pita bread. The salads are entrée size and easy to share as a course before your entrée.

After cocktails, appetizer nibbles, a fresh salad, good conversation, and the clink of glasses over a toast, it’s time for the main course.  For something more casual, try the Twin Palms Burger with two beef patties, white cheddar, secret sauce, caramelized onions, and house pickles. Another favorite and popular choice is the Fried Chicken Sandwich served with cabbage slaw, house pickles and onion on a parker house bun. Love that crunch! For a more elevated dish try the Redtop Farm Pork Chop with buttermilk mash, pearl onions, apple, and red onion reduction. The savory Short Rib is also an excellent choice with anson mill grits, garlic, baby spinach, and red wine demi-glace.

Executive Chef Ysaac Ramirez comes to us from Ace Hotel New Orleans who was part of the hotel’s opening team in spring 2016. A year later, Ysaac was named the hotel’s Executive Chef of its award-winning restaurant Josephine Estelle as well as the rooftop pool and grill, Alto. Ysaac’s passion for food stems from his interest and knowledge of Southern and Latin cuisines and he brings an eclectic mix of both these flavors profiles to King’s Highway.

For the locals, this is a great escape in your own backyard. For visitors, Ace Hotel & Swim Club is somewhat of a legend, and rightfully so. This place is just so tranquil, and chill, and gorgeous to look at. Everyone’s always having a swell time. There’s the wonderful retro vibes and the gorgeous morning light that greets you and makes you smile. The details are so thoughtful, with record players, art magazines, and a minibar with actual cool goodies.

For your next escape, make it King’s Highway at Ace Hotel & Swim Club. You’ll be glad you did.
