After a day of sun and pool, it’s finally time to relax.  You may know all about Palm Springs’ many fine restaurants and fun, man-filled bars but did you know Palm Springs also hosts many live music venues?  From blues to jazz to Broadway torch singer classics, there’s a live act waiting for you to enjoy on your next stay at Santiago. We’ve listed some of our favorites here.

Shanghai Reds

Tucked away in a small alleyway behind Fisherman's Market in Palm Springs, Shanghai Reds hosts live blues musicians on Fridays and Saturdays.  A perfect evening sharing fish tacos and beers with a few good friends enjoying live music.

The Purple Room

Always popular on weekends, The Purple Room hosts dinner and a ticketed show each Friday and Saturday evening.  But Tuesdays through Thursdays, there’s no cover and no ticket charge.  Come in for drinks and dinner while listening to acclaimed jazz entertainers from 6:30 to 9:30 PM.

Casablanca Lounge at Melvyn’s

This Palm Springs classic features local singers, musicians, and special guest performer appearances nightly.  The Sunday jam sessions are the stuff of legend.  Named to Esquire Magazine’s 2019 Best Bars in America list, you won’t want to miss an evening here.


An amazing French-inspired bistro hidden in a wisteria garden in downtown's La Plaza, Farm hosts live music on weekends. The menu is a 3-4 course and farm-to-table delicious!
