Coachella’s Stuffed Food Lineup Features Secret Bars, Speakeasies and a Michelin Star Pop-Up
Who’s up for a 16-course omakase sushi experience complete with a sake pairing?
From sushi speakeasies to farm-to-table dining experiences and secret bars, this year's Coachella culinary lineup pairs perfectly with live music.
The famed SoCal music and arts festival has announced a stuffed food lineup ahead of its return to Indio April 14th, 2023.
Festival-goers can step out of the sun and into the Indio Central Market, Coachella's shaded food hall, for delicious meals by Sweetfin and chef Eric Greenspan’s New School Quality Grilled Cheese. If your squad is seeking a savory meal, try the family-style tasting menu from Camphor, a French restaurant from the L.A. Arts District which is collaborating with OpenTable to design a full-service pop-up at the festival.
Looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind food experience to top off Coachella? Try Sushi by Scratch, a secretive pop-up by Chef Phillip Frankland Lee offering a 16-course omakase sushi experience and sake pairing.
Another special food option is Outstanding in the Field, a nomadic, farm-to-table culinary experience that celebrates local and sustainable farms.
"Each night, festival-goers can take refuge at the winding 200-person table enjoying a welcome cocktail and a seated, four-course, family-style dinner with wine pairings, served as the sun starts to set," the Coachella website explains.
With food covered, let’s explore Coachella's bar options. The festival’s signature specialty cocktail programs feature recipes by mixologists from across the country.
Can you keep a secret? Coachella’s secretive bar scene features Sonny’s by Attaboy, a slushy bar with a Miami Vice theme, as well as New York City's PDT (Please Don’t Tell). If sober raving is your thing, you can try a variety of mocktails at a non-alcoholic bar by virtue of a partnership with the New Bar. Coffee, tea and juices will also be available.
