Upright Cabaret began in Los Angeles in April of 2005 when producer/hosts Chris Isaacson and Shane Scheel bought an upright piano on Craigslist, borrowed a speaker and microphone from a guy in Venice Beach and begged a few of their talented friends to sing, drink and be merry. Since that standing room only inaugural engagement, Upright Cabaret has featured cast members from over 75 Broadway shows and countless film and television productions. After four years, this modern-day Martin and Lewis duo continue to work tirelessly to capture the Bohemian spirit of ‘Moulin Rouge’ and to present the country’s finest singers in a variety of venues across the country.


Ace Hotel & Swim Club – Palm Springs is the desert. People come here to escape the city and recharge with the tranquility of the desert landscape. Ace Hotel Palm Springs reinvents and updates the idea of the resort property, broadening the boundaries of the desert oasis. Offbeat details like tamale carts and tuk tuks offer surprise and amusement, while the property’s serene setting is embraced via outdoor massages and edible landscaping. Built on the foundation of a 1965 Westward Ho Hotel, much of the property’s original elements are preserved and restored, from unearthed terrazzo floors in the restaurant to the rare deep saltwater pool.


For the hotel’s interiors, the L.A.-based visual curator team Commune builds on the Ace penchant for pure, human design. Commune’s translation of the Ace vision transports the guest to an indulgent, bohemian “camping” experience. Utilitarian and beautiful, the design of Ace Palm Springs caters to the guest who seeks the simple and sublime.
