Neil's Lounge is, more than any place in Palm Springs, the epitome of a local dive bar. It's well-worn wood tables and bars, neon lighting, and minimal signage ooze normalcy and familiarity, which is probably why the bartenders seem to know most of the customers here -- they do, from years they ended their nights out with the same round of karaoke or the same sports fans showing up to watch game after game. And that's just at night -- during the day the kitchen cranks out bar food like steaks, ribs, and wings for an equally repetitious crowd.
