Here are our picks for best happy hour spots in Palm Springs!

Wang’s In The Desert

The place to be on a Friday during Happy Hour, Wang’s in the Desert is an award winning restaurant with a “top-shelf” happy hour that also offers the best pan-Asian cuisine in Palm Springs. The bar area is often filled to capacity on a Friday after work when “Boys Night Out!” is in full swing on the Zen Patio from 3 pm to 10 pm. There is a DJ spinning music to get your weekend started and you can enjoy Wang’s house drink specialties. Come early and get a seat at the bar to catch all the action and have some space if you decide to order some delicious pan-asian appetizers to go with your libations. Wang’s is located at 424 S Indian Canyon Dr in Palm Springs. Their happy hour includes food and drinks specials starting at $2 from 3pm-7pm daily.
