Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
The premier nightlife destination in Palm Springs gracefully pivots to offer top-notch casual fare. A lively atmosphere attracts a diverse clientele. The quality dining, cocktails and socially distant, outdoor setting keep them coming back. Chill Bar's own house menu is overseen by Executive Chef, Erick Hernandez. Special guest chefs "take over" the kitchen on select weekends, offering unique experiences from around the Coachella Valley.

Please note: OpenTable reservations during A MAY Zing Sundays with Mayhem Miller do not include a view of the show. Please refer to our website or Facebook page for links to purchase tickets on Eventbrite.

Chill Bar is always a good time! The bartenders/servers are fantastic and they have done a great job adjusting to all of the requirements for Covid. We are Palm Springs year round locals and Chill has been and continues to be our go to place.

Rob the owner genuinely cares about an inclusive safe environment and makes sure the welcoming atmosphere and celebration of diversity comes first. Andy, Brandon and Pauly are always looking out for us and always make sure we leave happy. The other servers and bartenders are great as well but these three always go above and beyond!

We would definitely recommend ChillBar and can’t wait until they can return to their normal nightclub format with hopefully a few of current changes that are working well for them as long term offerings.

Chill Bar was AMAZING!!! We reserved a table for 5; but were celebrating a birthday and had hoped for a private space. They gave us our own server (incredible); private space with dance floor and strobe light area --just for us! -- and the food was PHENOMENAL. Best celebration for a birthday EVER! I highly recommend!!

The Drag Queen for bingo was EXCELLENT. Kept the fun going all day. The QR code was wack. It’s hard to read menu in phone is sunlight. Waiter should either read it out load or carry a sign The food menu is short enough. Service to slow you need More waiters. Our guy was great though doing the best he could

I came back to give another try after I found out from locals google maps sends you to Kaiser’s instead of the opposite direction on the other side of Quadz. Anyhow, had a wonderful time! DJs were amazing! Food was amazing and the margarita flight was delicious. Pours were very generous. Server was adorable as he gushed about his new bride and future planning to be a daddy. Lots of fun people wearing masks. And servers were good at keeping us all safe. Oh and the Host hooked us up with a great table with all the people watching fun. Everyone was shaking their groove thing while working hard! I loved it.

If you’re attempting to book for drag brunch, don’t book on OpenTable - use the EventBrite link on their site. While I try to adjust my expectations for bars expanding to food service during the pandemic, this place just didn’t cut it. We were seated far away from the drag show (understandable since we didn’t realize our OpenTable reservation didn’t include the show). However, in order to get bottomless mimosas we were told we would have to pay for the show (which again, we couldn’t see from our seats). We ordered drinks from the bar instead. We ordered food, but only one of the two dishes arrived and that wasn’t great in itself. We barely saw our server enough to get a second drink round. We stayed 30 minutes and got the check, eating the remainder of our meal elsewhere. Other tables asked to be seated in the sun, server said they could move and eventually those tables were filled by others. It wasn’t a pleasant experience and I doubt I’ll return even when they go back to being a regular bar when they can.

Responded on 15 February 2021

Thanks for the feedback, Michael. We agree that the communication regarding the drag show wasn't clear on OpenTable. Please accept our apologies for that. As for the the other elements of your visit, the first drag brunch was. bigger than challenge than we anticipated. No excuses there. We do hope you'll come back on regular night when you're ready. Until then, please know we've used your review to make improvements.

We're sorry we weren't able to meet your expectations due to the City's COVID curfew. Occasionally we aren't able to seat parties so close to the required closing time because we won't be able to provide a great experience without you feeling rushed. Our apologies for not communicating this well enough. We understand your frustration.

Chill is a Bar that has stepped up to COVID by adding food, along with events (both Virtual and Live) to support its customers, staff and the community. Saturday Bingo is the place to be at 12:30 PM. The food is pretty good, esp. given that the food is just an add on requirement to stay open during COVID. 5 Stars to Chill and Staff for their ongoing support of Palm Springs' LGBTQ community.
