The Purple Room at the Club Trinidad in South Palm Springs is not going to change colors, but it will have a new look when it opens Oct. 24 under new co-owners Tony Marchese and Mark Van Laanen, co-owners of Trio Restaurant.

Club Trinidad Resort was built in 1960 when the Purple Room first opened its doors. The still-popular venue is considered to be one of Palm Springs’ original Rat Pack hangouts, where Frank Sinatra brought his friends to eat, drink and play. The Purple room re-opens with its pedigree legacy in mind, featuring swanky updated décor, an enlarged performance stage, and state-of-the-art sound.

“This place has such a colorful history, and our goal is to provide top quality entertainment six nights a week,” Marchese says. “We promise there will always be an exciting energy in the room, whether we have a DJ or a live act.

Gary and Joan Gand, of the popular local musical act The Gand Band, will be part of the venue’s music team. The Gands have been on the Palm Springs music scene for years.

“Teaming up with Tony and Mark is a dream come true,” Gary Gand says. “Desert hipsters, you've been notified!"

For foodies, the Purple Room will offer an $18 nightly dinner special from 3–6 p.m., $3 well, $5 call and $8 premium drinks during Happy Hour and half-price small plates.

"We will be featuring an amazing cocktail menu. Friday and Saturday food will be available until 2 a.m.," says Van Laanen. “Our Continental menu will have a mix of everything from deviled eggs and Sloppy Joe sliders to fresh seafood and steaks. We’ll have delicious options for every palate.”

The Purple Room will be open from 3 p.m. to midnight weekdays, until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and closed Mondays.
