    Default Good bars nearby for Thursday night?

    First time at Coachella this year. I'll be at the Embassy Suites in La Quinta. Anyone know of any decent bars in the area? I'm arriving Thursday and will need something to do Thursday night.

    Thanks.

    They're all mostly lame. Try to get into the Filter Magazine pre-party.

    I went to a restaurant in Palm Springs awhile back called Hair of the Dog. Can't remember where exactly it is but they have great bloody marys. My girlfriend and I would stop in there whenever we took a road trip to LA for "lunch".

    I also heard that this place is good. Not really into sports bars, but the beer selection is great and I figure it might attract a Coachella crowd that night.

    I think there's a Yardhouse near LaQuinta somewhere. Maybe in Palm Desert?

    There is, we had lunch and beer there in 2008. You can never go wrong with Yard House.

    Lets see, Embassy Suites in the La Quinta Cove so the closest bars would be in the Old Town plaza across the street but if you want some good old cheesy kareoke fun and getting plastered with all the fun drunks, go to Neils Lounge on hwy 111 and Madison st next to the Circle K gas station in Indio trust me you'll have the most fun at that dive bar.

    Yardhouse is in Rancho Mirage and a lil too far if your staying in La Quinta and plan on getting drunk

    watch out for the thursday evening mistake {this is especially applicable to campers}... the excitement of finally arriving in indio, after months of anticipation, can sometimes result in booze over indulgence — this leads to a painful friday morning and a shitty start to your weekend. drink carefully!

    Is that happening this year? I missed last year's fest, but I heard it didn't go down in '09. It was a lot of fun in '08, except for waiting for the shuttles at the end of the night lol.

    right where the 79, 60 & 10 meet in Beaumont city, a place called Celebrities cocktail & food lounge exists.

    This place has got the perfect feel to it, & serves amazing lounge food.

    I only suggest this place as a last pit stop of society before entering the 3 day weekend. It's a nice place to fuel up, relieve some of the tension from driving for quite some time (coming from Nor Cal, LA or OC california) and they have cheap drinks; bloody marrys, vodka crans, margaritas $5. &&&& They have karoke so if your a late nighters arriving into the weekend, it's a great place to also get some drinks and practice your vocals!!

    It's just far enough to let the food settle for the last 40 minute trek to the fields and to get your engine rolling right when you step off your car.

    yeah, that hour and a half of driving from oc creates a lot of tension.

    Good to hear. How was the crowd?

    Thanks everyone for your feedback and suggestions. The Filter party doesn't sound like my kind of thing. (A lot of work to get to a big crowd and limited alcohol.)

    There is a new bar in Palm Desert called the Hood, It's about ten minutes from the Beer hunter in La quinta off of highway 111. It has pictures of past Coachella fest's all over the walls, It even has a signed guitar from Josh Homme and Jesse Hughes who have both been there a bunch of times because they are from Palm Desert. It has a younger crowd and this will be your best place to hang out with people who are just excited about the festival as you are. On Thursdays they have seven dollar bud light pitchers.

    We went to a bar next door to the Red Barn last year on Thursday night. It was dead as doornails. He said they usually close around 9 or so because no one is ever in there during the week.

    The RED BARN is a bar. In fact, a lot of local bands start out there. Not sure what's next to it though. If your crew has a house at I.P. though, I'd play it safe and hold your own party. I'm sure the PD will be out in force.
    YARDHOUSE is a good choice as long as there's a designated driver and NIEL'S Lounge is really close. Used to be a real dive but new ownership changed that. (I tended bar there with the previous owner and he never gave a shit about the place. New owner remodeled the whole place and unfortunately, last year just before Coach and Stagecoach, they got hit by an arsonist and shut down. Bummer timing, but they're back open, remodeled again. Pretty sure they have Karaoke, and it wouldn't suprise me if she went and got live music for those weekends.)
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
