Who doesn’t love a Happy Hour?  After a full day of pool and sun, there’s no better way to move into the evening than joining the crowd at one of Palm Springs’ many Happy Hours!  We’ve put together the definitive list (at least to us) of the top ten Happy Hours you’re not gonna want to miss.

Palm Springs is known for its awesome Happy Hour menus and drink specials.  Several, like Mr. Lyons, Tropicale, and Lulu’s, are very well known.  Here are a few of our favorites you may not have heard of.
