Top restaurants

Bar
“Lulu is one of my favorite go to lunch and dinner place because of its unique design. The high-ceilinged space defined by sweeping staircases and lit by crystal chandeliers wrapped in pastel acrylic shades is a ying-yang reminder that traditional and cutting-edge culinary art work together with historic Palm Springs glamour. Water bubbling up in a thick glass column and sparkling walls of glass mosaic tiles make a welcome entry. They also offer an extensive variety of foods as highlighted on our Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Happy Hour and Late Night menus. ”
