They don't make restaurants like Melvyn's anymore. This is such an old school place and it's an experience that everyone should have in Palm Springs. My husband and I were grinning ear to ear the whole time.

Melvyn’s is reasonably priced on cocktails. It’s a high end place but doesn’t gouge you. And their service is aces!
