Palm Springs, CA

The Cole Hotel, an Uptown Palm Springs gem to local insiders has hosted some incredible pop up restaurants in the past.

These restaurants include the Heyday Palm Springs, now located at the Hilton in Downtown Palm Springs and Biscuit & Counter which will be returning to the Palm Springs Cultural Center as a popup starting this fall.

Now, a new French neighborhood restaurant and bar called Freddie’s Kitchen has opened up at the Coles Hotel and is striving “become your ‘favorite’ place to hang out for great food, cocktails & awesome wines.”  The restaurant is “a modern French Bistro serving fresh, French California cuisine with global flavors.”
