The newest business in Palm Springs, The Row House, is the first-ever Coachella Valley Hybrid Cannabis Lounge and Restaurant. This budding business celebrated their official grand opening with a variety of special events taking place from April 22 through 24, at their exciting location in the Uptown Design District in Palm Springs.

Offering a one-of-a-kind experience, this premier dispensary includes an extensive retail shop, modern lounge area, and uniquely, a restaurant serving Italian cuisine, all under one roof.

The Grand Opening Celebration Weekend events included special pop-ups with its key product partners, a variety of BOGO + 1 cent specials, dab bars, an appearance by LA influencer Kimmy Tan, and live performances by The Gravities, a soul-groove/ funk collective of musicians. A ribbon cutting also took place, hosted by Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce, with City Council and other guests, including famed talk show host, Joey English.


“The Row House has a beautiful look to it. The lounge gives you a feeling of being in a jazz club. Our full menu definitely sets us apart from other dispensaries. We serve Italian dishes like pizzas, pasta, salad, and desserts,” stated Nancy McDonald, General Manager of The Row House Cannabis Shoppe & Lounge.

Upon arrival at The Row House, guests are greeted with opulent glass doors and an ultra-chic and inviting entryway, and are provided curated and elevated offerings for those who are both cannabis connoisseurs and those who are cannabis curious.

The retail shop features nearly 250 products—from flowers, edibles, and extracts, to vapes, pre-rolls, tinctures and topicals. Inventory includes products from Boardwalk/Strong John, Punch Edibles, Cosmic, Leune, Apex, Dime, and Tough Man. The luxurious state-of-the-art lounge presents a modern and inviting setting to enjoy purchases, and for an exceptional experience can be paired with delicious, freshly prepared Italian cuisine from Palmina by Puglia.

The Row House also accepts debit cards and does not charge a transaction fee, as opposed to other dispensaries that normally make that charge. Debit cards are also accepted with delivery transactions.

“We will be conducting educational presentations in our lounge to inform the community on CBD, THC, and its benefits. I used to do a lot of educational presentations before the pandemic, and we want to share that knowledge with others again,” said McDonald.

Nancy credits the people that she works with and those she meets as being the best part of her job, as she feels that everyone is very easygoing in the cannabis industry.

“We are the only dispensary in the county, if not the state, that serves food. People have been wanting that kind of place for so long, and now there is a location in Southern California that provides that for them,” stated Ryan Mierau, Owner of The Row House Cannabis Shoppe & Lounge.

Located in the Uptown Design District at 2500 N Palm Canyon Drive, Suite D1, in Palm Springs, The Row House is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. There is surrounding free parking and debit card transactions are accepted.
