ASK A LOCAL: RON DURAN

Each month, we share some top secrets from Palm Springs “men in the know.” After you check into Santiago, be sure to check out a few of these great local spots. Ron Duran is the co-owner of Pilates Plus in Palm Springs.

Go-to restaurant: Mr. Lyons Steakhouse. An amazing bar, great bar menu, and happy hour menu. The burger is kickass and the Brussels sprouts are not to be missed!

Late night spot: Chill Bar on Arenas has the club experience. Or maybe a drink at the bar at Birba, which has an indoor/outdoor chill mixed crowd restaurant and bar.

Best mixologists: Seymour’s at Mr. Lyons Steakhouse. This is one of the coolest new hidden places to go in PS. They will create a specialty drink on the spot – just tell them what you like and you’ll be treated to an amazing new experience.

Early hangout spot: Wang’s for Friday happy hour or an early lite bite at Gyoro Gyoro Sushi.

Favorite event: Meet at the Museum. This fundraiser for the Palm Springs Art Museum draws the coolest of the cool during White Party weekend. There’s usually food, entertainment, and an open bar and above all, it helps the museum.

Best kept secret in Palm Springs: The hiking here is not to be missed, especially after a rain. It will be a beautiful spring on the trails this year.

Favorite adventure: A trip to Pappy and Harriet’s is such a great night out and as long as you have a designated driver it’s the best out-of-the-way place to let your hair down. Music, food and drink are plentiful and the crowd is diverse and chill.

Favorite stores: Wil Stiles has a killer array of clothes for men and women. Unique, stylish and always a selection you can wear for poolside parties, black tie events and everything in between. Mr. Turk right next door has the Palm Springs look for a cool Modernism event where you want to dress to impress.

Do. Not. Miss.: I love the exhibits at the Palm Springs Art Museum. I’m a big supporter and it’s always worth the time to check out what’s new.

A LITTLE BIT COUNTRY. A LITTLE BIT BLA-TI-NO.

Two upcoming desert events offer something for everyone.

First, you can swap your usual desert flip-flops for cowboy boots April 28-30 during Stagecoach, California’s country music festival. You’ll see plenty of Wrangler jeans downtown and plenty of big names on stage, including Willie Nelson, Shania Twain, and Cyndi Lauper (a country Cyndi? who knew?). Get tickets and learn more at www.stagecoachfestival.com.

If twang ain’t your thang, stick closer to town for Blatino Oasis 2017, April 27-30. This 11th annual celebration for men of color and those who appreciate them is another amazing party that calls Palm Springs home. For more information visit www.blatinooasis.com. 

No matter where you party, Santiago is close to the action and makes for a great home base. Book now for these popular events.
