    Smart, friendly but small piano bar and cocktail lounge.
    Site Report:- Definitely worth a visit! As a 35-year old, I had a wonderful time. I went on a Thursday, and there was a pretty good crowd, along with a piano singer. Then, I went back on Saturday, and it was wall-to-wall silver fox!!!

    Older Men 40%+, Rent 10%?, Cruise 5?, Elegance 6
    Go up the stairs to the new location for Numbers directly above The Normandie Room. There's a forty five foot long bar, a nice view of West Hollywood and a long row of black booths for dining. The menu offers continental cuisine, but it's really the bar that attracts the customers. The music is subdued and the crowd is a definite blend of generations and styles. This is where the young and the sporty attract the attentions of the mature and the distinguished.
    It is "worked" by young hustlers which could be off-putting if not expecting it.

Palm Springs

    Palm Springs has one of the largest Gray Gay communities in the USA and with over 1,000 members, it has the largest Prime Timers chapter in the country. However, the large number of retireees, and second-home weekend regulars, are more likely to socialize privately than in the nightclubs.
    The geographic sprawl and the lack of a gay neighborhood makes encounters with these locals and their guests less likely than in more localized gay resort areas. Many aspects of the area invite comparison to other gay resorts, but those comparisons form an incomplete picture of the Palm Springs experience.
    Palm Springs is a perfect long-weekend winter getaway for anyone whose primary interest is relaxing in the sun. It has a broader array of facilities than most gay resorts, and is beginning to offer a comparable number of gay-specific options. It does not have Miami's nightlife, Key West's dining or Provincetown's culture, but it does have enough high-quality, gay-specific offerings to fashion a fun vacation.
    If you stay at a gay resort, you can fashion a very gay vacation of the laid-back and low-key variety. Much of the Palm Springs gay experience is sexually oriented. Many of the guesthouses here are at the high end of the "Sexual Temperature" scale, and the trend is even further in that direction, but there is still a broad range of lodging options available. If you're looking to get lucky, Palm Springs is well suited to help you achieve your goal. But the heavily advertised image of Palm Springs as a place for guys on the make is just one side of this multi-faceted destinations. With a little something for everyone, Palm Springs is a destination almost anyone could enjoy. 

    Local Gay Guides


    Ground Zero.
    A neighborhood bar with dancing. Lots of older men go there. Very informal.

    Rainbow (was Rainbow Cactus) (NOTE: WILL CLOSE MARCH 17th 2008 - RIP)
    212 South Indian Canyon (at Arenas) 
    Tel: 325 3638 
    Frequented by older crowd and admirers. Food is average.While many locals come here to meet up with their friends there are some who are looking for someone for the evening or perhaps a lifetime. Even then, the locals are very friendly and you don't have to be a wallflower if you don't want to. The piano attracts a group of singers who take the microphone to join the pianist in some well known numbers, a welcome respite from his singing!
    The restaurant serves standard American fare but it is inexpensive and portions are generous.

    Street Bar  (re-opened after fire May 2003)
    224 E. Arenas Road 
    CA 92262
    Though Streetbar is located on Arenas Road, which is Palm Springs' version of the Castro, it's a step above the club scene's meat market mentality. Patrons gather at the pool table or the bar for the entertainment and to chat without the cruisy feel of most nightspots. Although the crowd is mostly older, Streetbar is still an inviting place for gays looking to meet locals. If you prefer a more relaxed and mature nightlife choice, the Streetbar may lead you to common company.

    The grounds are beautiful, friendly staff, good lunch and breakfast, small bar, nice pool and hot tub, sauna and most of the rooms are individual bungalows. 

    El Mirasol Villas
    525 Warm Sands Drive
    Palm Springs, CA 92264
    Open Year Round
    Older Men 70%, Admirers 30%, Rent/Hustlers 0%, Music 1, Cruise 5, Elegance 5
    This is a clothing optional resort but my partner and I were the only ones without clothes by the pool. This is a good place for a couple. The place is very private and very attractive. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect as it is in the center of Palm Springs and the Warm Sands area is the center for gay resorts (12).
    2nd opinion: Very Nice place to stay. A very nice (& cute) host. Rooms looked new and very well decoarated. I was hoping for more older men but the two days I was there, only 3 out of 15 (20%) were mature the rest look like typical under 40 men you see everywhere. There was one very nice looking older couple there from Canada. Only 30% of the men around the two pools were nude the rest kept thier cloths on.

    Motel 6
    Not Gay but inexpensive and walking distance to the most of the Gay bars. It is about 6 blocks due west from the Warm Sands area that is where most of the Gay motels are located. Some of the Gay motels willl permit you to use their pools, some for a nominal fee. I have not been there but in Cathederal City which is about 5 minutes by auto East of Palm Springs there is a motel called the CCBC....Cathedral City Boys Club which rents out pool use at a nominal fee.
