Over the past few years, the restaurant scene has changed dramatically in Palm Springs.  One of the most exciting changes is the number of restaurants that don’t close up shop at 9PM!!  For years the late night selection was pretty much iHop (great pancakes!)  Now there are some fantastic choices for folks that aren’t quite ready for that 6:00pm reservation.  We thought it would be great to highlight a few of the more notable places open later than the rest…


Open until 10:30PM week nights, 11:30PM weekends

Delicious Italian food, with great share plates and flat breads.  Try to save room for a homemade dessert!

Ruben & Ozzy’s Oyster Bar

Open until 11:00PM

This place used to be a well-kept secret for locals, even though it is right downtown.  Not a secret anymore! The word is out that this little place is serving some great food.  And there’s an awesome “after 9PM” happy hour menu.  Highlights are the seafood pastas, fish tacos, and any of the baked oyster dishes.

Smokin’ Burgers

Open until midnight!

Definitely a local favorite for grabbing a big juicy burger!  There are several great in-house combos, or you can build your own.  And if you’re a fan of crispy delicious tater tots, they can be ordered instead of fries!  YUM!

Black Book

Serves food until 1:00AM

Don’t let the bar scene fool you.  This place serves a surprisingly good upscale bar-food menu.  The chicken sandwich is juicy and delicious.  The hamburger is a city wide favorite.  And the nachos could possibly change your life! If you decide to order some fries, don’t worry one order is enough to share for the table.

Sandfish Sushi

Palm Springs’ newest sushi restaurant is a very welcome addition to the food scene.  Upscale sushi…and whiskey bar.  They have some incredibly interesting menu selections that are creative and surprising as well as traditional rolls and nigiri. The dining area is small but there’s an awesome patio for those warm late nights when you’re hungry!

Kings Highway

Open until 11PM

King’s Highway is the roadside diner at Ace Hotel & Swim Club.  Formerly a Denny’s, this is now a funky hipster spot with a delicious and creative menu.  The dining room is filled with comfortable booths that are perfect for a late night bite.
