Village Pub – Vision/Cuisine/History
Village Pub opened in 1996 as a fun, exciting international establishment with great food, drinks, beer on tap and dancing till 2 a.m. every night.
It filled the niche for a place to eat, drink and be merry till 2 am, 7 days a week in downtown Palm Springs. Today, The Village Pub is the place to be for exciting nightlife and great food all day and night.
Owners Tareef Talala and his sister Roula were inspired to open a tavern like others they’ve experienced during their travels throughout the world – one that embraces the desert lifestyles!
“We strongly embrace and welcome the diversity of cultures and cuisine,” said Tareef, who resided in Canada about 20 years before moving to the U.S. “This is not just a business; not only are we very accepting of everyone’s individuality and diversity, but rather we thrive on it – both staff and customers.”
Tareef has a Master’s degree from Queen’s University, Ontario; Roula has a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Studies from York University, Toronto, Canada. Together they bring a well-educated and worldly perspective to the Village Pub.
“At The Village Pub, we believe in nurturing all the senses”. In addition to great food, the pub features dancing nightly, a friendly staff and a diverse local and tourist clientele. There are a variety of different settings to enjoy and flags throughout. When you’re Here, You’re Among Friends.
We thrive on diversity and welcome everyone in here with open arms to dance, make friends, eat and be merry. Our goal is to create a mini melting pot and bring all our differences together and recognize and celebrate world cultures and cuisines. If you don’t see your flag flying just ask and we’ll order one to display in our restaurant.
