Always a good time. Relaxed environment, great bar food (seriously, really good) and service is always top notch. During the day it's a great meet-up place for drinks; typically able to get a table. Night time, especially on the weekends, it gets packed so you may end up standing, but still a good time. By far, my #1 choice for day drinking.
First time here. Loved the bar itself but the rest...wooden tables...just didn't fit the modern slick design of the bar area. Poor choice in my humble opinion. Bartender was friendly and poured a good drink, which I appreciate! My friends ordered a burger and fries each...both enjoyed their lunch. Waiter was attentive and friendly.
Decent ambiance, going for warehouse-chic I think. Interesting liquor selection, but they lack a few standards required for several classic cocktails. Seems like they're trying to emulate a craft cocktail bar, without actually doing any craft cocktails. Food is middle of the road.
Crazy fries were delicious! Hispanic female bar back and Caucasian bartender male afternoon we're nice & friendly. Staff that came in to replace them changed the atmosphere. Most were unfriendly even though I tried to be friendly with them. Waiter guys, very unfriendly. Happy hour only 4-6 :-( early evening.
I think this is a great new addition to the PS gay scene. Its a nice, new look and doesnt feel like time has stood still here since the 90s like most other places in gay Palm Springs. The service is friendly, and quick. They also have a great food menu of some simple bar food like tacos, nachos, salads, etc. I highly recommend this place!
My favorite bar in boystown.. the drinks are great , bartenders fast, outdoor patio is always clean and the music is great.. They have really nice televisions all throughout the club playing happy videos it's very up beat here and it's always happy. The pool tables are great in the back and it's always busy but never crowded. I highly recommend this bar over all of the others on arenas
I love this place. Every time I am in the Palm Springs area I always stop by here for happy hour or early evening. I have never been here late at night when everyone comes out. I generally like it a little quite so this is when I prefer going. You will see all kinds of men here, everyone from normal looking guys to straight up fetish gear. From fully clothed or guys just wearing a thong. They have lockers there too in case you want to change into something sexy when you get there. What I like, is everyone seems to be fully accepted at the Barracks. I personally enjoy just wearing a pair of panties in the place and I don't feel out of place at all. A lot of people just like to show off and be themselves, it's not all about sex or hooking up. Sometimes you will feel a hand on your rear end from somebody, but I love that. People just want a place to go to be themselves. Everyone is very nice, the staff is friendly and you can usually strike up a conversation with anyone in the place. I will be back in town in early April, can't wait.
Not as good as it has been in the past but always a fun place to hang out and have a really strong drink for a really cheap price. It's obviously best on the weekends but once in awhile on a Wednesday is pretty good. Be careful with a DUI traps always suggest you Uber
One of the worst bartenders I have ever come across. Judgemental, rude and a basic douche. He insulted my friend within a minute of us arriving. Because he did not have the basic skills to make a simple cocktail he told my friend that this bar was only for leather men .All the while he was lisping and grinding like a cheap rent "boy" in underwear that had past their experation dateSimple rule if you are a bartender- if you don't know how to make a cocktail just say so. The customer will ask for another option. Bartenders rely on tips. A simple fact this douche forgot about before he stood in front of other patrons and insulted my friend. At this point I had just moved to PS. In fact , the day before. I guess they will never see me again. In a town awash with bars, clients have options. I exercise my right never to spend a cent there again. I encourage others who don't want to be humiliated by a clicky bitter old queen to do the same.
The Barracks Bar is a local gay hotspot that offers a lot of events especially their Sunday afternoon get-together that is extremely popular. The bar offers a "pool table area" and a nice large patio for the Sunday afternoon gathering. The staff is great and I'm sure you will have a great time! They even offer a large interior room for private parties and events!
This is a great bar for the gray/bald hair community. They have great karaoke and have a night where you can get chicken, and I am talking about food. Free popcorn, great drink prices. You might miss it while driving as there is a small neon sign outside. Make sure you enter the correct entrance door otherwise you either go into a Mexican or Asian restaurant and you won't win Let's Make A Deal.
Great Bar! Friendly staff.. Interesting nightly promotions😁🤔😉... Like Free Fried Chicken Wednesday's... Taco Tuesday... *with the purchase of a adult beverage... 21and over. And, there always seems to be freshly popped Popcorn... self serv... *with the purchase of a adult beverage. And... Great karaoke.... Great staff.
Beautiful hidden little bar. Amazing bartender. Try their pumpkin Martini thing. It's amazing. I'd like to see a little more (like any) comfortable seating for fat people but other than that the place is awesome
Have been here a few times and each time I have had a pleasant experience. I have always sat in the outside patio never inside. The bad part is the marijuana smoke from the restaurant next door can be very overwhelming on the patio.
A fairly quiet gay bar with a pool table and outdoor seating. The bartender was very welcoming and efficient. The drinks are STRONG so take it easy if ordering spirits! Very reasonable prices as we paid $5 for a spirit and mixer. Well worth a visit.
Nothing here is pretentious, nice place to have a drink with locals. Bar could use a makeover but still is a favorite if you just want to have a beer without a loud crowd. Watch people walk by, nice staff and great drink prices...
Love this place been coming for years. Great happy hour and pricing. Always good to catch up with familiar faces. Shout out to Eddie, Tommy, Mary and Kris - great staff and always service with a smile.
So I've been apprehensive but coming here since emy first experience via palm springs pride... Which was INSANE. well... I came here and the first thing I loved was the older staff.... I'm weird, but I find it more comfort at a bar when the staff isn't a barely 21 year old halfway naked.. Staff was amazing.. Friendly... And drinks are good. A bit high for a desert considering I'm. From Manhattan beach... But idc.
Ugh, this is the Dirtiest place ever. The bartenders are way too busy trying to kick out all, but white people. If your not willing to put up with 5 day old beer smell in the bar and week drinks if your not white, then don't even try this place.Oh they had a sign in the bathroom, for a more pleasurable experience ask your bartender.
Had the best time sitting out on their beautiful patio, enjoying the blue skies & the vivid, most beautiful view of the mountains. I sat up at the bar , bartenders were so much fun & extremely helpful when it came to needing info on the Palm Springs area. They also have really cool swinging booths you can enjoy while eating out on the patio. They only have 4 so they're a little hard to come by. Fun place, beautiful scenery, enjoyable staff , very reasonably priced and good food!
We come here everytime we visit Palm Springs...we come to Palm Springs at least 5 times a year. This is always our first stop when we get into town. The staff are friendly, service is fast. We come at different times of the year and at different times of the day and have always had a positive experience. My husband and I highly recommend Azul.
On a recent trip to Palm Springs we ate here and it was the worst experience and food. It took forever for the food and when it arrived it was awful. My son ordered a Bison burger which on the menu it stated it came with sauce, onion, lettuce and tomato....all of which were missing. His girlfriend ordered sliders which also stated had toppings and they came out with nothing on them. When we asked we were told by our waitress that she forgot to hit that button...which we have no idea what that meant considering the menu listed it. My son's burger ended up being raw! I had a salad which was browned lettuce.The worst part was when we notice numerous...A LOT of cockroaches! Don't get me wrong I understand the tropical climate but if they were out in that many numbers and there was nothing being done to control them then I am terrified to see what behind the bars and the kitchen looked like. Bad experience and will never be back.
This place was nice and I had good view of my surroundings during my visit to Palm Springs. It was a bit expensive for what it was, but what really got me was the wait time for my food. I don't mind paying a little more during my vacations when I choose to go out to eat, but this was simply ridiculous. I only ordered a club sandwich with chips and a beer. After nursing my first beer, I had another beer and thought to myself, 'is it just me? I wonder whats taking so long?' While I was looking around, I began noticing other patrons leaving because they weren't being tended to. The couple next to me left after claiming to have waited over 30 minutes for their food, leaving cash for their drinks. I would've followed suit and left too had I had some cash on hand, but nonetheless, I stayed and enjoyed the sights and sounds around me. 30 minutes later, I received a sandwich, not what I ordered, but would make do anyways. I'd like to note the server did notice it was incorrect after she put the plate in front of me, and offered to get me what I ordered, but I passed on it for fear that it would take another 30-60 minutes. I just wanted to eat what was in front of me and leave after being there for close to over an hour. It wasn't all that busy; no one was inside the establishment and I think I counted 3 other tables there with some people sprinkled around the bar. The fish sandwich and fries I had were cold...maybe they were understaffed that day? Who knows? All in all, crappy food, but good view and beer.
My mom and I visited on our annual trip to Palm Springs. We had walked the whole "strip" for the street fair and decided to have a drink here before walking back. The special drink of the day on Thursday was called a Palm Springs Lemonade and it was really good. We didn't plan to eat, but the special of the day for food was tomato soup (yes hot soup is kinda weird on a hot desert night) and grilled cheese for $4.95.... my mom and I both love tomato soup and grilled cheese so we were sold. It wasn't the best I have ever had by any means, but for the bargain price we were happy. The atmosphere is cool here - neat gliding rocker tables. And the waitress (Irene) was a good server, very attentive and friendly. Overall it was a good visit and I wouldn't hesitate to stop again next trip!
