RetroRoom Lounge Opens in Palm Springs
New Gay Bar Offers Nightly Entertainment and Vintage Drink Menu
PALM SPRINGS, CA (July 6, 2016) – The RetroRoom Lounge in Palm Springs is now open, offering the intimate atmosphere of a bygone era reminiscent of the rat pack days, nightly entertainment, and classic handcrafted cocktails prepared the way Dean Martin would have preferred. The bar caters to a gay crowd, but welcomes everyone.
In a former life the RetroRoom Lounge was Legends of Palm Springs which was a classic Palm Springs Bar until the adored owner and actor Gregg Robblee passed away. His photographs still line the walls. Many of the employees and customers believe the place is haunted by him to this day.
The new owner, Laurie Causey, is keeping the same vibe with a few fun changes. “I’m so thrilled to maintain the feel of the original bar and it’s exciting to add some new flair as well,” said Causey. “We’ve added a variety of entertainment to ensure a great atmosphere, and look forward to attracting a great crowd off Palm Canyon.”
The RetroRoom offers live lounge-style entertainment on the weekends and karaoke three nights per week. Mondays are “like totally 80s” and Tuesdays are “disco fever.” For the full schedule as well as daily drink specials visit our events calendar here.
