Two seasoned Palm Springs restaurateurs are forging their sizable talents to open a new restaurant, 1501 Uptown Gastropub, in a vacant restaurant space in Uptown Palm Springs. 

Willie Rhine of Eight4Nine Restaurant & Lounge and Chad Gardner of 533 Viet Fusion and Roly China Fusion bring their combined successful track records to this new culinary venture. This formidable team will focus on each of their strengths – Rhine for front of the house (guest relations) and Gardner, back of the house (kitchen).

Housed in the former Draughtsman space just south of the Arrive hotel, 1501 Uptown Gastropub brings a fresh and enticing twist to the standard “comfort pub food” inspired by Rhine’s native Scotland and the UK. 

Chef Chad Gardner has created a menu at 1501 Uptown Gastropub, as the name implies, he calls elevated pub cuisine based on traditional “public house” fare. 

The menu features shareable Small Plates – cheese and charcuterie, house-made sourdough pretzels, beer cheese dip made with an amber ale, and sweet and spicy BBQ wings. Soups and Salads – filet mignon black bean chili, Thai style spicy sauteed shrimp salad, and blue crab cobb salad. Sandwiches – pressed Kobe short rib and cheddar, blue crab and lobster melt with beer cheese, pressed pastrami Reuben, and Beyond Burger.
