Enjoy Booze Sno-Cones and DJ Sets All Summer at Ace Palm Springs
With all the delays and sadness surrounding its allegedly-finally-open NYC sibling, it was easy to forget how utterly enchanted we were by the scene at Ace Palm Springs during Coachella this year. Most notably, we were quite dazzled by the booze sno-cones by the pool. So imagine our sweet, sweet surprise when we were reminded that the party continues all summer long on Sunday afternoons, with food, DJs, booze sno-cones for all likely a slightly classier and accessible affair than, say, those pool parties thrown by the other hotels in the country on Sundays (*cough*Hard Rock*cough*).
Every Sunday afternoon, the Ace will be hosting a pool party from 2-7 pm with live shows, fresh drinks, and food. Throughout the summer, the resident DJ (Oscar Sanin) with be teaming up with different guest DJ's each week. The sched so far:
· May 24: Chris Douridas, former music director of KCRW and host of the Santa Monica station's Morning Becomes Eclectic show, joins DJ Beyonda, host of Portland, Ore.'s most popular soul night and one of the city's favorite DJs
· May 31: Michael Antonia, eclectic DJ of LA's Flashdance
· June 7: DJ Rescue, aka Zia McCabe - the Dandy Warhols' keyboard player and DJ on WK Radio
