Went to check out the new ACE Hotel & Swim Club. Walking in, we immediately felt a warm, peaceful 1960's retro vibe. Pool area first. It was dusk. The setting sun, the hot Palm Springs wind, and the cool misters made the pool area feel almost dreamy, hippie-like. People were lounging in the hammocks, extremely laid back, in a daze of relaxation.
We came for cocktails though so we headed back towards the lobby and into the bar area. The Amigo Bar is very cool-black walls, dim lighting, cold refreshing air, comfy bar stools. We ordered Charro Negros and they were delicious, fresh, and perfect. We are coming back next weekend with more friends!
