The golden age of supper clubs is making a resurgence! Well, sot of. In between supper clubesque performances with singers, performers and comedy acts there are still dj fueled disco nights at this venue. Just check the web site for the nightly entertainment.

The Purple Room, a 1960s favorite watering hole and supper club of the famed Rat Pack was recently reopened for a new generation of nightlife hipsters. Club Trinidad CEO Arthur Brigman stated  that the hotel/nightclub originally opened on Nov. 5, 1960. Marchese says The Purple Room and Melvyn’s are the only two places left in Palm Springs that can make legitimate claims of being the place they hung out. Located at the retro Club Trinidad Resort 1900 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA 92264

Cheekys and Birba

Published by under Restaurants

 

Do you know I’ve been here for 4 years now, and damn, if we’ve been able to get in to Cheekys. Lines wrapped down the street are always a deterrent for us. But the food must be good if they have such consistently long lines. Well, someday.. We have  been to sister bar Birba, next door. Nice atmosphere, good drinks….however, the prices are L.A. prices. With all of the happy hour specials in town this is not a place we frequent often. (But ,then again, I’m a local now!) Check out the menu for yourselves, don’t let me be a Debbie downer :)

Tonga Hut Palm Springs
254 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs, CA

Best Tiki bar ever! Can you say pupu platter, please? There’s an amazing selection of tropical concoctions. You can order the classics, such as a Zombie or MaiTai, but my favorite so far –the Nutty Chi Chi!

Spa Resort Hotel Demolished

Published by under Events,History

images3V8XW1UWimagesDSZLHKHA

 

The historic downtown entrance to the Spa Resort and Hotel  came to a crashing demise. A once beautiful example of  mid century architecture this city so covets,  had,  or has little meaning to the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians . Sheesh, they could have at least let someone dismantle and preserve the colonnaded entrance to the hotel. Nope, destroyed.

 

One of many articles that chronicles the destruction…very sad.
