RIP Hacienda Cantina

Hacienda, Palm Springs

Hacienda Palm SPrings

The Hacienda Cantina in Palm Springs has closed its doors.

The restaurant / bar / lounge / beach club / whatever-the-hell-it-was made the announcement on Facebook (note that the posting emanated from San Diego):

(Weird, the same Facebook page was so happy just 24 hours earlier)

The note read:

“To all our Facebook fans, friends, family, and supporters, we are sad that announce to Hacienda will be closed for regular daily business, effective today. We will be open periodically for private parties and events. Thank you for all the good times, amazing pool parties, fun taco Tuesdays, and for allowing us to be a part of the culture of Palm Springs. Thank you to our staff, DJs, event clients, and regulars. We love you all.”

The establishment has made news this year for not paying its contractors in a timely manner, receiving a $250,000 grant from the City of Palm Springs, and because Hacienda’s owner, Richard Meaney, paid Mayor Steve Pougnet at least 200-grand to be a “business consultant” #PouGhazi.

No word if this is ruining anyone’s fun.
