With restrictions easing, the desert is hotter than ever.
If the oddball name didn’t give it away, this is the latest outpost in Palm Springs’ hipster renaissance. The ever-present logo of an ultra-chill palm tree adorns everything from shirts to shot glasses, and there’s a highly curated selection of local arts, crafts and dry goods to round out the roster. Your feelings about this store will mirror your thoughts on the ongoing LA-ification of the desert.

The pandemic’s casualties vastly outnumbered its bright spots, but Bar Cecil somehow wedged itself firmly in the victory column. The modern brasserie opened with a splash mid-pandemic with chef Gabriel Woo (Sparrows Lodge) damning the torpedoes with caviar service and a $50 martini—and they’ve been packed ever since.

This is the hardest reservation to get in the past decade, maybe more.
