The place to see or be seen (or both), is Eight4Nine Restaurant & Lounge. Located in the Uptown Design District, Eight4Nine’s 9,000 square feet of stylish, spacious, comfortable, and elegant dining areas enjoy rave reviews from locals and visitors alike on TripAdvisor, Yelp, and OpenTable. You can enjoy dinner on the romantic patio overlooking the majestic San Jacinto Mountains, share small plates in the swanky lounge, linger over lunch or brunch in the main dining room, or simply sip a signature cocktail at the backlit white onyx bar.
The sprawling space boasts Louis XIV ghost chairs, a mix of whimsical chandeliers, and a stunning 30-foot outdoor firewall.
The culinary team is headed by executive chef Russ Seville, who created a menu that changes seasonally, while the most popular dishes stay put yearround. There are many reasons this place is voted one of the very best in Palm Springs.
