My BFF and I entertained ourselves in Palm Springs this weekend thrifting and decided to finally check out The Parker. Sorry about the Worst Photos Ever (iPhones are really the most amazing things though).
It is the cutest hotel. It is also the only place I’ve ever paid $14 for an espresso martini – but it was probably the best drink I’ve had in YEARS. Much as I would love to party there, I just can’t afford it. The bar and lounge are great and so perfectly styled: comfy, granny glam, and a little tongue & cheek kitschy. The outdoor areas are just what my fantasy landscaping looks like – oh man just all the beautiful chairs…
I was in heaven.
We were starving and feeling a bit pinched after the pricey Parker, so we stopped at The Ace Hotel’s King’s Highway Diner. So good, simple and affordable. The servers were very friendly, and the design was clean, industrial, a little rustic and mid century all at the same time. Plus we loved the big elephant.
