For fun Happy Hour times, Legends & Icons in North Palm Desert provides great food and drinks, at very happy prices!

It’s sort of off the beaten path, located in the Stater Brothers shopping center near Sun City, Legends & Icons is a hidden treasure. With its pub like feel, the place exudes thoughts of a cozy neighborhood bar, and that’s exactly what it is. Dark wood accents lay the décor groundwork for Legends. Guest have seating options that include the bar, high top tables and the dining room, as well as a walled in patio open for those wanting to smoke.

The vibe at Legends is a mixture of the Sun City crowd, people passing by, and everyone else. But the Sun City crowd does dominate. It makes total sense that it does as the expansive country club is just a golf cart ride away. Distinctive draws to come to Legends is their fabulous Happy Hour from 2pm to 6pm daily, and efficiently friendly service (staff member’s such as Robert Nava keep us coming back). It’s not necessarily because it is chalk full of $5 items, but the quality and portions that are offered during the HH time frame which are really the attraction.


It’s funny, for my boyfriend Todd and I, as I may have mentioned before, we like to frequent different places for different things. At Legends, we go there for their Rib Ends. These things are fall off the bone fantastic. The smoky flavor of the ribs linger on the lips, sweetly accompanied by their BBQ sauce. Delish!! To make them even better, for HH, they are 20% off, as are all of Legends appetizers served at the bar. Drinks are discounted as well, with well drinks at $4.00, and discounted huge glasses of house wines, as well as beers.

Other appetizer highlights include their humongous portion of 1lb. Hot Wings (special hot sauce, with celery and Ranch dressing), or Iconic Nacho’s (Chicken or ground beef, layered nacho cheese, topped with sour cream, guacamole, and jalapeno’s), Pulled Pork Potato Skins (cheddar cheese and jack cheese, bacon, topped with green onions and sour cream) and a variety of Flatbread Pizza’s, plus so much more.

There are many places to pop into for HH fun here in the Coachella Valley. Legends & Icons is certainly a must on the HH train, for fabulous food and drinks at gleeful prices. Cheers!

Legends and Icons is located at 78-152 Varner Road, Suite A & B, Palm Desert Ca, 92211
