Blackbook is a low-key cocktail bar with a tiny kitchen and a big heart. They serve award-winning craft cocktails—without the wait or attitude—and classic American comfort food that’s so good they were named the best restaurant in Palm Springs.
The name was inspired by the Nevada Gaming Commission’s “black book” of excluded persons. It’s an acknowledgment of our belief that everyone has felt the sting of exclusion at one time or another. Not here. Not ever. Blackbook is an inclusion bar. Everyone is welcome.

If you’re looking for something heartier, Blackbook’s main courses are sure to impress. Indulge in one of their succulent two-handed burgers dripping with flavor, or their grilled provoleta chicken sandwich. They are known for their Nashville hot chicken dredged with their secret spice blend.
On the lighter side are salads and street tacos.
Complementing their exceptional menu is an extensive selection of handcrafted cocktails, curated by skilled mixologists. Sip on classic favorites or venture into unexplored territory with Blackbook’s signature concoctions.
