Palm Springs is a unique city. With its sunny climate and laid-back vibe, it's long been a popular place to live or visit. 

Palm Springs is consistently rated one of the best California cities to retire in. It's also a popular tourist destination with over 130 hotels and many attractions

Whether you live in town or just visit, you need to eat. Thankfully, Palm Springs has some top-notch restaurants. Here are three of them. 


Boozehounds is the perfect restaurant for dog lovers. Not only are dogs welcome, but they also have their own menu. 

If you're not a dog lover, don't worry, Boozehounds has a little something for everyone. 

  • It's a great coffee and co-working space during the day. 
  • It has a great daily happy hour.

  • And, of course, there is an alcohol menu with a wide selection of craft cocktails and delicious beers.

Smoke Tree BBQ Bar & Grill

Smoke Tree BBQ Bar & Grill brings great BBQ to a great location. Located behind the Smoke Tree Shopping Center near downtown, it's hard to miss. 

The in-house smoked barbecue meats go well with the diverse selection of spirits and craft beer.
