First impressions are everything and when you enter The Riviera Palm Springs that initial glance will leave a lasting impression. The appropriately named Landing Bar + Lounge greets guests with retro-glam decor that includes cheerful colors and patterns, mod light fixtures and cocktail tables, palm print pillows, and tweed chairs and sofas.
The Landing serves a large array of handcrafted and classic cocktails along with many beer and wine options. And each week the bar will be offering a new signature drink. "So each week is a new experience," says the hotel's Marketing Manager, Douglas Burr. "But one regular menu item we recommend is the Vista Chino [which is made with] Ketel One Citroen vodka, Thai basil and watermelon shrub, and club soda.
While the bar also offers many food options, Burr notes that all of their drinks pair well with The Landing's new housemade hummus that's prepared with grilled peppers, feta cheese, tomato, Kalamata olives, and arugula served with grilled naan bread.
