Smooth Jazz And Great Venues – The Gardens on El Paseo

The Gardens on El Paseo, an open-air complex that combines retail facilities and pedestrian amenities, reinforces the resort character of Palm Desert. Conceived as an urban village, the project creates an architectural landmark along Palm Desert’s premier shopping corridor, with outdoor restaurants looking on a richly landscaped plaza, and paseos filled with native plants. Traditional methods of planning and building design and the use of indigenous materials mitigate the harsh desert temperatures, creating a comfortable environment.

Pathways through garden areas take shoppers to the many designer stores located in the mall. Sculptures and works of art are around every corner. Saks Fifth Ave, Tiffany, Brooks Brothers and most of the leading designer stores in the world are all at this beautiful mall. Restaurants, art galleries and terrific gardens make this the focal point of the El Paseo Drive shopping district.

The 14th Annual Wine & Music Series take place on Saturdays, since January 28th, 2012, and on the center lawn area in front of Saks Fifth Avenue. $12 donations benefit a local charity each week.
