Coachella's back-to-back weekends might be totally sold out, but has that ever stopped Angelenos from trekking to the desert's coolest music bash, wristband or not? If you're in need of another swanky shopping stop to add to your Indio itinerary, Palm Springs' newest Sparrows Hotel is the latest stylish shelter option to offer standout retail therapy to fashionable festivalgoers.
Inspired by a nearby 1930s ranch-style resort, T magazine notes the affordable, 20-room inn is an "aesthetic anomaly" in Palm Springs, boasting concrete flooring and custom-made redwood furniture rather than the usual mid-century modern merch. On buzzy days, the hotel's known to open its pop-up shop, where guests can score antique furniture, vintage designer apparel and more hand-picked treasures.
Sadly, staff tells us it's too late in the game to score April accommodations (bummer), but the shop will be open to all visitors.
