The Tack Room bar and restaurant in Indio, has a diversity that few places can handle while holding an identity unique to this quaint tavern.
During Sunday brunch the friendly staff fills your glass with Mimosa’s or serves you an award winning Bloody Mary along with their famous chili dog breakfast or warm fresh eggs.
But at night the Tack Room Tavern takes on a whole new atmosphere with a sometimes rowdy crowd and live music, you would never guess this was the same place. After the happy hour margarita festivities are finished, and folks step down from the infamous horse saddle bar stools, the Tack Room gives way to a fun and casual night club. Every Friday and Saturday night there is live music with some amazing talented local bands and during the week an upbeat DJ will get you dancing. They even have a fun Karaoke night that will have you belting out some of your favorite tunes with help from a variety of craft beers on tap or unusual foreign bottled beer.
The Tack Room Tavern is also a great place to hold a birthday party, wedding reception or maybe a fun cocktail party with some close friends. Nestled in the Coachella Valley, the Tack Room is located on the same grounds where Coachella Music Festival is held, the Empire Polo grounds. In the winter many of the polo players and riders go there as well as locals from the surrounding neighborhoods. Apparently this is where all the jockeys and those that work at the polo grounds come for cocktails and to meet up with the locals. But during the summer nights you can enjoy the warm desert breeze while sipping your cool margarita on their open porch without as many rowdy tourists.
Every night is special at the Tack Room tavern. Check out what they have going on tonight by calling (760)347-9985 or visit them on line at www.tackroomtavern.com or www.facebook.com/tackroomtavern.
