Palm Springs Late Night Eats & Drinks


Many visitors might associate Palm Springs dining with a sunny al fresco brunch, which is great. But after heading to an event, cocktail party or performance – or a late-night arrival at Palm Springs International Airport– some visitors may be looking for a late-night place to eat.

We’ve heard from locals and tourists alike looking for recommendations about where to find drinks, bar bites or sit-down dinners in the later hours of the evening. Here’s our round up of some of our favorite spots that are open late into the evenings that promise a great time when the sun goes down.

Note: Hours of operation may change seasonally. Wherever you travel, it’s best practice to check out a restaurant’s website, social media or call their host stand in order to confirm when their kitchen closes or when they have their last seating!
