The ABC (Alcazar, Birba, and Cheeky's) vision all started with Cheeky's! Tara Lazar's love of food, cooking, and can-do attitude started a restaurant revolution in the desert.
We do Relaxed Luxury, Community, Creativity, Love, and Integrity. The foundation of everything we do is our desert surroundings and the things we love: Food, Music, Drink, Design, Art, Travel, and Culture.
With the addition of Birba and Alcazar we have been able to create a complete container where we can curate a very specific and unique experience for you, our desert guest: A place were an urban dweller, world traveler, foodie and non-foodie, artist, and Palm Springs native can come and mingle, exchange ideas, relax, play, and eat together!
We give our guests something unpretentious, thoughtful, and a bit out of the box. Our guests have come to trust that this is a place to explore new things and feel at home doing so. We pay close attention to their needs, whether they want to jump right in or need a gentle helping hand. We are very serious about their experience but as always it is presented with a sense of adventure, sincerity, and whimsy.
Opened in 2011 this 34-room boutique hotel, formerly known as the Pepper Tree Inn, has undergone an exquisite redesign. Modern and sleek, featuring imported Italian linens, flat screen televisions, fireplaces, poolside patios and mountain views. Alcazar is the third addition to the Birba and Cheeky's restaurant family...making the triangle complete. Hotel amenities include daily fresh pastries from Cheeky's, Intelligentsia coffee, Townie bikes, a business center, and wireless internet throughout the grounds. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktails, and now a hotel...all in the heart of the super-hip Uptown design district!
Opened in 2011 Birba is the nighttime darling of the Uptown district. This Danish design inspired restaurant/lounge offers urban dining with outdoor fire pits, couches, and a sprawling Carrera marble bar. Birba's innovative menu features Italian wood fired pizzas, delicate salads, braised meats, and homemade desserts. Vibrant, current, and design chic, you can enjoy music, locally sourced fare, hand-crafted cocktails and an eclectic crowd...all served under the sexy desert sky. VISIT BIRBA
Opened in 2008 Cheeky's has become a Palm Springs institution and arguably the best breakfast in the desert (not to mention lunch). The unique and thoughtful menu changes weekly and is highly praised for its unique farm-to-table cuisine, featuring seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Everything is perfectly seasoned with herbs from Cheeky's on-site herb garden. Casual, simple, perfect! VISIT CHEEKY'S
