015As if there weren’t enough reasons to go to the Tilted Kilt in Palm Desert, with their hot servers, hosts and bartenders, fabulous food, drinks, pool, foosball and of the course sports. But now the brilliant minds at the Tilted Kilt have turned it up a notch and are offering the public even more with Tilted at Night.

Sure, they were opened at night before, actually until midnight. However now they will be opened even longer with their new line-up. The Tilted Kilt will be rockin until 2am on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays (with plans for Sunday to join the group in the future). Music and dancing will take the lead after 10pm on these nights giving Tilted Kilt patrons even more to come out for. And late night foodies take heart, as the new schedule includes their kitchen staying open until 1am.

It’s a progressive step forward for owner Russ Dalgetty who took over the Tilted Kilt ten months ago, after a fourteen month closure. Dalgetty has made some major improvements to the former establishment with a new kitchen, sound system and TV’s. As well as a 3,000 sq. ft. patio and a brand new, chill-you-to-the-bone, AC.

He wanted to improve his business even further and make the Tilted Kilt a venue where you could realistically stay and play all day if you wanted to. Watch sports in the day, and enjoy dancing and music at night. Dalgetty went straight to the source of nightclub knowledge leaning on the wisdom of the man himself, Coachella Valley’s own, Steve Johns whom he knows through the charity that they are both on the board of, The Children’s Variety Club. Johns has well over thirty years of experience in desert nightlife and is the go to guy if you’re looking to make your day spot a nightspot.

DJ Bob Scatch2 copyThe Tilted at Night concept kicks off Labor Day weekend on Friday, August 30th from 10pm to 2am (21 and over), with live music by Mark Gregg & The Dude Jones Band and D.J.’s Dynamic Dave and Bob Scatch. Bring your friends and dance all night on the Tilted Kilt’s ample dance floor, and take mixing and mingling to new heights. As for the cover charge for the new launch, well, there is none, it’s free to get in to the Tilted at Night.

Besides their new late night activities, the Tilted Kilt has an array of promotions red hot and ready for the 2013/2014 season. Get ready for Tilted Sports Radio. It will be a live radio broadcast from inside the Tilted Kilt on Team 1010 KSPS every Saturday with Dalgetty and Flint Wheeler talking local sports and inviting guest coaches to chat it up. The broadcast will entertain while giving listeners the chance to win prizes on what Dalgetty calls “A slightly Tilted radio show”. The public is invited to watch the broadcast live from 2-4pm and it will also be streamed on the internet. The radio waves start on Saturday, August 31st.


Starting Wednesday September 4th will be Industry Night. It’s meant to give a special thank you to all those who work so hard in the hospitality industry, with 25% off regular priced food items, $3 well drinks and Happy Hour from 9pm to close (H.H. offered on all weekdays).

Then on Thursday September 5th, it’s time for football fans to dust off their jerseys and root for their favorite team at the Titled Kilt, as it is the place to watch football, with ice cold beers and delicious food (do I smell hot wings?), a gaggle of TV’s and the World Famous Kilt Girls. Radio station KPALM BIG 100.6 will be on hand to give out prizes, plus guests will have a chance to win a Tilted Kilt Golf Cart.

The Titled Kilt will also start opening at 9:30am on Sundays to accommodate eager football fans, and will offer breakfast all day everyday starting on August 31st

Thursday nights will still have the ever popular Bike Night, where Bikers will enjoy 25% off regular priced food items and Happy Hour from 9pm to close (actual proof that you own a bike necessary).

On Mondays, guests can soothe their workday blues with Happy Hour all day, plus the Tilted Kilt brings in EZ 100.3 where there will be a chance to win $10,000 cash!

024And for all of you Bartender Bash enthusiast who can’t get enough of your flair favorites, although the finals take place on August 28th, don’t despair, there are plans for another installment of this popular event. So keep your ear to the bar for information.

The Tilted Kilt is the home of UFC Fights (they carry every fight), and will have a Pay per View fight on August 31st, with a $10 cover charge, 50% of the proceeds will benefit the Marines…support is greatly appreciated.
And if main stream boxing is more your style and you’re itching to catch the Floyd Mayweather/Canelo Alvarez fight on September 14th, then the Tilted Kilt will knock you out with comfort and style while you enjoy the titans duke it out. The cover charge for the Pay per View event is only $10.

The Tilted Kilt is poised for season success loaded with great new promotions and especially their much anticipated Tilted at Night.

A new dance night spot is very much needed in Palm Desert, and will certainly give a sigh of relief to nightlife seekers looking for something new.

As Dalgetty said, he wants the Tilted Kilt to be an ultimate sports bar venue as well as a nightclub hot spot, giving something for everyone. Looks like he got his wish.
