This place is beautiful. We were not here for tennis but for the Lexus Jazz in the Desert concert featuring Dave Koz in a brand new facility at Indian Wells.
The newest venue is a covered but open area for concerts et al. It was a very warm evening and thankfully it is covered and shaded. The only downside if there is one is that seating is all on one level and not tiered but that really wasn’t an issue visibility was quite good.
The surrounding area with palm trees and the mountains made for a very unique evening. The music this night was great and with the sunset and gradual cool down it was a spectacular evening. The entire tennis facility is just that, spectacular. My understanding is that there is an effort underway to make Indian Wells the place to be for the pro tennis circuit.
I think the goal has been achieved.
