The Purple Palm restaurant and bar was inspired by the original owner of the Colony Palms hotel, Al Wertheimer—a Detroit-born bootlegger. The Palm was a desert-outpost clubhouse for Wertheimer and his cronies. These days, you can eat and drink by the pool all day, with a special sunset menu from 3 to 6pm. The food is sources from local, organic farms, which means the menu is full of fresh, seasonal options. The cocktail list pays homage to the venue's beginnings with classic libations and funny names: try the vodka-grapefruit Doll Squad or the grape-forward Purple Gang.

Came here for my wedding anniversary dinner and had a great time.  We sat outside in the dimly lit area next to the pool.  The atmosphere was really romantic until a couple sat down near us with their toddler.  We asked to be moved and the waiter sat us on the other side of the restaurant.  The service was impeccable and the food was great (I just wish they had a few more options for vegetarians).  My husband ordered the prefixed three course meal with steak and he was definitely pleased with how everything tasted.  Just be ready to spend a pretty penny when dining here, we spent almost $150 on (1) prefixed meal, (1) cauliflower appetizer (I ate that as my main course) and a bottle of the low price point wine.  Although everything was good, it didn’t feel like a meal worth that much.


You're pulling me in! I want more! I want IP I be there like yesterday! Especially when the owner of the Colony Palms Hotel was born in Detroit, Michigan and was a Bootlegger. The stories my Father shared with me about this incredible era in time are also so amazing. I was born in Windsor, Ontario, across from Detroit. On the USA/Border of the Detroit River. The Purple Palm Restaurant however looks so inviting with it's cozy charming California atmosphere giving it a resonance geared specifically to the Locals and Tourists of patronage in a tropical warm-hearted setting.
