Guide to the Uptown Design District in Palm Springs Work your way up North Palm Canyon Drive, and you'll hit the highest concentration of modern shopping and dining in Palm Springs. The Uptown Design District brims over with contemporary and mid-century design, a fantastically colorful trio of boutiques from local star Trina Turk, toothsome California fare from Jake's and Trio, and the high-design concept shop Raymond | Lawrence. Trading yesteryear's kitsch for today's sophistication, the savvy design shopper can't afford to miss these few blocks. All Hale If any architects deserve credit for sprucing up the 800 block of North Palm Canyon Drive, it’s the Los Angeles–based firm Rios Clementi Hale Studios. Their 2008 renovation of the El Paseo building, a circa-1926 shopping complex, has paved the way for some of the best retail in town. NotNeutral, the company’s product-design arm, has a cheerful shop in El Paseo; Boulevard sells chic decor; and Christopher Anthony offers a selection of mid-century housewares. Worked Up Opened in September 2012, Workshop Kitchen + Bar skips the local martini-soaked retro chic in favor of something far rarer in Palm Springs: an industrially inclined interior by Soma Architects, replete with 27-foot-high ceilings, soaring concrete booths, and the first American lighting installation from the Beirut, Lebanon–based firm PSLab. Design aside, you’ll also want to order chef Michael Beckman’s flawless rib eye. ---------------- Furnishings Photo by: Troy Showerman 1.) Just Modern 901 N.
