PS UNDERGROUND returns to Modernism Week with “Chi-Chi” – an homage to the fabled midcentury Chi-Chi Club. Guests will enjoy a specially created four-course dining adventure.
Midcentury Palm Springs boasted a variety of elegant supper clubs, including the Racquet Club, the Doll’s House, Ruby’s Dunes and the Purple Room, but the infamous Chi-Chi Club outshone them all. Its Blue Room seated 250 for dinner and the larger Starlight Ballroom accommodated up to 750. Opening in 1947 with Desi Arnaz and his 14-piece orchestra headlining, the Starlight Room quickly became the place to perform and be seen. On this special occasion, you will be able to peer through the windows of the Chi-Chi club as if looking back in time. From your socially distanced table on the PS UNDERGROUND patio, you will get a glimpse of the stars who graced its stage, including tributes to Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Sinatra, Lena Horne and Louis Armstrong.
The menu will unfold as the evening progresses. PS UNDERGROUND'S renowned chef, Dave Horgen has been tantalizing diners in the desert for years with his unique approach to food. The menu is kept secret, which adds to the mystique, but Chef Dave will be happy to accommodate dietary restrictions with advanced notice. Contact PS UNDERGROUND via email, email@example.com, with any dietary restrictions and make sure you include your name and the date of your reservation. This dining adventure includes a four-course dinner, a spectacular show, free flowing cocktails, beer and wine. $150 per person – (Gratuity is at guest discretion)
Suggested attire (optional) - Midcentury cocktail.
