The Draughtsman is the newest restaurant opening on the north side of the Uptown District in Palm Springs. The Draughtsman is best described as an renderer of elevated pub fare with an extensive collection of draft beers and hand-crafted cocktails in an atmosphere of laid back fun. The building was formerly a Pizza Hut but has undergone extensive renovations to highlight the unique architecture of Palm Springs with exterior walls that completely open to allow an al fresco dining experience while inside. The outside patio area is comfortably appointed with sitting areas including fire pits for those cooler evenings and an outdoor recreation area. Large screen televisions surround the bar area providing an excellent vantage point for watching your favorite sports teams and the big game. The Draughtsman has a comfortable neighborhood feel perfect for casual drinks and dining. Appetizers (try the Guiness Onion Soup), sandwiches, salads and burgers are available all day ($8-$16) while dinner entrees ($18-$29) are available from 5-11 pm. The Draughtsman is located at 1501 N. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.
Tucked inside the corner of the Henry Frank Shopping Arcade in downtown Palm Springs, Tipper’s Gourmet Food & Marketplace is a great spot for any meal during the day. Breakfast is available all day including sandwiches, burritos, quiche, breakfast bowls with weekly specials priced from $7-$10. The lunch menu features salads and hot & cold sandwiches priced from $8-$12. The dinner menu is available after 3 pm and is highlighted by the house-roasted chicken accompanied by Jerusalem Salad and roasted potatoes. Box lunches are available as well as “grab & go” dinners. Relax and enjoy your meal on their covered patio or stop by to peruse the marketplace for something tasty to take home. Tipper’s is located at 276 N. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.
EEight4Nine is an expansive elegant space located in the Uptown Design District of Palm Springs. Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour, Eight4Nine is an ideal spot for an intimate meal for two or a gathering of a group of friends.
