There’s a new power player in Palm Springs, as the Arrive Hotel welcomes in indoor-outdoor option Draughtsman. A casual gastropub with a worthwhile patio, this craft beer option officially opened a few nights ago for dinner, and is already pulling lunch shifts.
The Chris Pardo-designed space comes complete with ample patio seating, a wraparound bar set off with plenty of golden touches, and enough open roaming room for a beanbag toss court. The space was actually a Pizza Hut in a different life, making the transformation all the more remarkable.
As for the food, expect everything from wings to short rib poutine to a truffle mushroom butter burger. There are TVs for watching the game, plus a full cocktail lineup, as well as craft beer and wine.
Draughtsman is currently open on Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs, keeping lunch and dinner hours.
