The Chi Chi

The Chi Chi (not Chi Chi club, just plain old Chi Chi) was probably the best entertainment venue Palm Springs ever had.

Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole, Sophie Tucker performed there and just about everyone went there.

During the 40s and 50s the place was hot. In 1950, they added a supper club with a stage that retracted to an ice rink.
