After a troubling year of being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Purple Room supper club in Palm Springs is poised for a comeback.
The venue, which played host to a number of Hollywood personalities in the 1960s and 1970s and was a favorite hangout for Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, reopens on Aug. 31.
The Purple Room raised more than $100,000 through GoFundMe last April in a bid to avoid shuttering permanently.
“Due to the extraordinary gifts of our friends, audience members, and performers, it is possible to see a bright future with all of the joy, dining, and entertainment that has been missing these last 16 months,” said Michael Holmes, who besides being a featured and beloved performer, owns the historic desert location, having bought and restored the venue in 2015. “We can’t wait to embrace you all in person and celebrate life again!"
