    I would not rate the food excellent but it was good. Loved my avocado toast.

    The sparkling wine was plentiful and the wait crew was on top of things.

    The drag show was very well put together. I would rate it a must see. The cast was friendly to all.

    Fun bar. Great place if you are a little older. Great prices, friendly. Really liked that they checked if you were vaccinated. Fun retro videos.

    Party in the parking lot was loads of fun. Live music with 80's stars. They had a drink that 2 could share. In side was Tiki kitsch.I will definitely go back.

    I know many people have said the same thing numerous times about it being a rustic bar, but it cannot be emphasized enough. Definitely off the beaten path of the other gay bars in Palm Springs (mostly located on Arenas), The Tool Shed offers a different calmer vibe in comparison to other places. The crowd is definitely older and leaned more towards the muscle/leather daddy contingent. The art in the bar leans towards the Tom Of Finland style, but the bar is inviting though small. Great drink specials.

    Drinks were reasonably priced. Large bar area with separate dance area. Bathrooms were small causing lines.

    Slightly different vibe each time we went. Weekends may have a few more bachalorette parties, but hardly over run. Friday night was more chilled, but certainly had more gay clientele. Definitely a bar that turns into a club, with entertainment on the podiums and dance music on the playlist. The long drinks are very reasonable. Staff are friendly, but perhaps need an extra hand or two as you could wait a little while to be served. But this is expected at a popular bar.
