A hotbed for the Palm Springs eclectic, the stretch of Palm Canyon Drive from Alejo to Techevah has become a destination neighborhood for locals and savvy travelers. In recent years Uptown has enjoyed thoughtful restoration of historic buildings and architecturally minded new construction. The area's reputation for mid-century design and vintage shopping have inspired retailers and helped brand Palm Springs' variety of desert chic. An eclectic spring of quality cafe's, bars and restaurants have followed suit and put this neighborhood on the map.

Concept

Workshop Kitchen + Bar is an architectural space dedicated to the great gifts of food, drink, good design and neighborhood. Our approach to our work is thoughtful and fun.

Our kitchen is based around seasonal products from local farms, so the menu changes often; we enjoy the playfulness and creativity in that. Although “Americana” may best describe the style of our food, influences are many. Favorite techniques in the kitchen include our wood-fired pizza oven, wood-fired grill, and custom sous-vide station.
The bar looks mostly to American classics, and focuses on researched ingredients and carefully homemade basics. Original cocktails vary with the market’s availability, Rene’s mood, and tend to rock.

Michael Beckman

Michael Beckman,Chef-Owner

English Lit grad gone culinary, Michael’s ease in four languages parallels a well-travelled and seasoned skill set in the kitchen. Beckman studied at the Paul Bocuse Institute in Lyon, France, and apprenticed at the fourneaux of the 3-star Michelin Lameloise in Burgundy. Chef de partie at Ritz-Carlton’s Vitrum in Berlin, Germany under Chef Thomas Kellermann (Tantris, Munich; Kastell, Hotel Burg Wernberg), Michael has cooked as a private chef in Los Angeles the past several years, where he’s focused on the farmer’s markets of Santa Monica & Hollywood, as well as the city’s burgeoning cocktail culture.

Joseph Mourani,Owner

Successful restaurateur and hospitality guru, Joseph began his career as a civil engineer in Montreal. After apprenticing at “Laperouse” (Paris’ oldest restaurant), he dove head first into Paris’ nightclub scene, apprenticing at the swanky “La Maison Blanche”. Post graduation, Joseph worked as assistant Food and Beverage Manager at the prestigious “Hotel du Crillon”, one of the six palaces of Paris. In 2006, Joseph’s “Myu” bar + restaurant in Beirut gained international acclaim and the press called it “a brainchild of a former engineer.” Since Myu, he has developed and franchised a bubble tea (boba) concept in the Middle East, and launched “Stereo Kitchen” his second architecturally significant restaurant in Beirut.

Candy Urreola,Restaurant Manager

Candy Urreola was born into the restaurant industry. Her Grandparents owned several restaurants in San Diego where her Father began cooking at the age of 12, and her Mother waited tables at the age of 15.  Candy’s innate knack for details, guest service and marketing skills make her a natural for the industry. Having worked for several of San Diego’s prominent restaurant groups such as Urban Kitchen (Kensington Grill & Cucina Urbana), Nobu and Rock Bottom; her diverse background has always centered around menu and drink items that resonate a local and seasonal flair. Like many San Diegans, Candy spent many long weekends in Palm Springs. When the opportunity to work at Workshop Kitchen + Bar came about last Fall, she knew she had to be a part of the farm-to-table movement in the Coachella Valley, and left the beach for the desert.

Architectural
Manhattan based Soma Architects took on this project with owners Michael Beckman and Joseph Mourani. First thought: how to realize a contemporary design in a beautiful Colonial building? Our solution was to create a clear contrast through a Modernist insert that follows the rhythm of the space's 27' cathedral ceiling trusses, it's pillars, and 17' high barn-like windows.
