Our favorite place to head is downtown to Arenas Street where you can find the biggest concentration of LGBT owned venues in Palm Springs.
There is so much to see and do here – by day or by night – we couldn’t possibly list it all but some of the highlights have to be Hunters Nightclub, one of the most happening LGBT spots late at night or Blackbook Bar, a relaxed hangout for people watching with outdoor seating and comfort food galore. BIKE Palm Springs Rentals is also located here, with affordable rates and fun itineraries you can recreate as a do-it-yourself tour – and don’t miss popping into Krave and Kulture for some truly vibrant, out-of-this-world gay fashion choices.
There is also a video bar, piercing shop, Paino bar, fetish stores and more – plus plenty of annual rainbow community events that let everyone know that are welcome as they are 24/7.

You don’t find modern colour scheme so artfully employed in many hotels, which is what got The Saguro Palm Springs featured in the likes of Vogue, Elle and Esquire. If you’re hot on keeping your Instagram flush with the freshest looks there are few better places you can head then Saguro.
The Saguro inside and out is one of the most stylish and quirky hotels in Palm Springs. Getting that perfect shot is easy and you’ll have loads of shots to look back at your time spent at the hotel.
Only a mile from the foot of the majestic San Jacinto Mountains, the Saguaro hotel is also only 3 miles from downtown Palm Springs with its incredible restaurants and 9 miles from the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway – meaning you can explore easily, and return for frequent breaks by the pool.
The amazing thing about Palm Springs is how relaxing it is. With the azure sky stretching endlessly above, time seems to slow down. Whether you want to hike, hop from coffee shop to coffee shop, admire the midcentury architecture or just lie by a pool, you’ll be able to do that with a sense of your worries slipping away.
It might have the reputation of being home to golf-playing retirees, but the recent resurgence means that it’s bursting at the seams with trendy and colorful hotels, restaurants and shops. There’s some truly great food to be eaten here and we could easily spend the whole time going from restaurant to café to restaurant again.
But the place isn’t without culture or art. After all, a city that hosts an 11-day event dedicated to midcentury architecture (Modernism Week) and is moments away from the Coachella Festival Ground has to have a great culture scene. It’s also one of the more LGBT friendly cities in America with the highest concentration of same-sex couples in the country.
