Tapas to share
Bring a group, share several small plates, and sit around the large outdoor patio and bar. If you are four people or less, ask to sit in one of the booths (which are actually swings).

      Great outdoor dining
      Eat outdoors, not in. Great eats the bar with mixed but fun clientele.

      Good Happy Hour
      Always stop by here for happy hour. Great outdoor setting with nice view of the mountains in the background. Always meet other people from out of town to chat with. Very relaxed a good place for conversation with friends!

      Oh So Classy
      A friend and I stopped here on our way from Phoenix to West Hollywood for lunch. Even though it was 100 degrees the outside bar was full of people and not a soul including any staff was inside. As neither of us was dressed to sit outside in the muggy heat, after visiting the ladies room I flagged down a passing waiter as he went by headed for the kitchen. I asked if we could still sit inside and he said absolutely while seating us at any table we preferred. He was so charming and accomodating even as he had to continue waiting on people outside while running back and forth to the kitchen for their food orders. He returned quickly with our drinks as well as our food which was excellent in every way. We ordered what he recommended and everything was just as he said it would be. There are shows on certain nights including that Friday and I almost wanted to stay over in Palm Springs just to go! I would highly recommend Azul for dinner, dates, shows or just cocktails and conversation.

      Fun place
      Really enjoy sitting at the bar and talking with all the people. When being seated for dinner, I love the swing tables! Hard to get unless you show up early (usually). Food is good and the portions are OK, yet, if you don't watch out you will spend alot more money than you planned on. Come prepared to enjoy and bring extra money!

      With there last night with the lady. Horrible service! I think the bartender was to concerned with his appearance an who he was attracting to help out two woman! I think if we were male,we'd be more welcome here.what a drag! And so close to dinah shore weekend.

      Nice place to hang out....
      But the menu is not flexable. We went for lunch at 2pm and brunch wad still being served with no option to order off a lunch menu. I ended up ordering a wrap that was soso.

      A great time under the stars........
      Go there every time we are in Palm Springs. The staff is nice and the music is always pumping. The wait can be a bit long sometimes so grab a drink at the bar and check out the "Eye Candy" while you wait, nice way to go,lol... Nice presentation and food. It's right in the heart of town and close to everything, start off there and head east with some new friends.......

      Agree completely with first reviewer
      This place is one of my favorite anywhere. The cocktails are delish, the food is to die for and the service is top rate. Do yourself a favor and bring your friends here for Tapas and drinks. A bit pricy, but worth every penny. Georgie's Alibi Gay Bar (same as Ft. Lauderdale and St. Pete) is opening upstairs. The crowd is mostly Gay very diverse ages and genders. This is a place everyone will enjoy even Grandma will have a ball. Live entertainment often. Trust me on this one you will fall in love.
