The Ingleside Inn offers a soulful history and dedicated turnkey event planning for indoor and outdoor meetings, event, and private-dining spaces. This desert estate behind the gates is ideally situated only one block from the design-centric core of Downtown Palm Springs, yet nestled dramatically against Mount San Jacinto. Retreat-ready, this 30-room hideaway also houses iconic Melvyn’s restaurant and lounge–as well as an elegant hacienda courtyard, and manicured lawn with pool.
A MODERN VINTAGE
Melvyn’s is where glamour happened–and still does. Multi-style event dinners pile on the panache with a full buyout for a dinner of 175 guests and 300 for a standing reception, while the lounge hosts up to 75 guests. Fully customized menus take a fresh, local spin on beloved classics.
A SPLASHY SOIREE
On a lushly landscaped lawn surrounding the pool, up to 400 guests can experience the essential Palm Springs soiree: Imagine an afternoon party with cocktails and bites, all staged from two rooms connecting to the pool. Or, indulge with a cocktails by the fire pit, a formal dinner and evening underneath the stars and dramatic mountain views.
Framed by arches, iron gates, Mount San Jacinto in the distance and a central trickling fountain, the hacienda courtyard makes for intimate cocktails and gatherings for up to 100 guests. Enhance the flow by booking the Library, where the longtime room of opera star Lily Pons charms with fireplace, and dual sets of French doors.
DRAPED IN ELEGANCE
Glittering and elegant, Melvyn’s restored private dining room houses elegant dinners for 30, or standing receptions for 50. Milestones and meetings, luncheons and brunches–let us give you the full Mel treatment with customized menus, signature cocktails and plenty of tableside drama.
From casually cool luncheons to black-tie galas, desert dining at Ingleside is rooted in fresh approaches to the classics. Anchored with Melvyn’s must-haves, signature cocktailing, and accessible wine pairings, mix and match from our customizable menus for dining, drinking and socializing.
