Five Star Adventures Tours opens doors of “The Rat Pack Hideaway” in Palm Springs for dinner, variety show, and Legends and Icons Tour. "The Rat Pack Hideaway” is the timeless Las Palmas rancho estate so frequented by Frank Sinatra and his entourage, that the nick name stuck. The much in demand and ever original PS Underground will cater a three course culinary feast, featuring fresh ingredients from the house garden, and including two wine, beer or soft drinks per person. Included in the price of entrance will be a wine greet and welcome, and a tour of the grounds.
This season’s all new, exciting, musical variety show, which will change weekly, was created by and features Francesca Amari, an award-winning actress and cabaret vocalist who has appeared on the top cabaret stages from New York to Hollywood. Also featured is crooner Gilmore Rizzo, who tours with his own show, “That’s Amore,” and appeared for 8 years on the Emmy-winning TV series, “Murphy Brown.” Accompanying them will be Bryan Miller, who is a staple of the Hollywood piano bar scene and just recently returned from a national tour of “I Love Lucy Live.” Patterned after the quintessential Rat Pack party on stage, the show will be filled with hits from The Rat Pack, famous composers, singers, and TV and movie stars who have had homes here in the Coachella Valley, including Hoagy Carmichael, Jerry Herman, Sammy Cahn, Cary Grant, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Judy Garland, and many more.
In addition to and immediately preceding each event, Five Star Adventures Tours offers their Legends and Icons Tour. Done in Mercedes Benz coaches and vans, the tour shows more than 30 celebrity homes, with the last stop being at the Rat Pack Hideaway for the event at 6:00 p.m. The tour and the evening event may be taken together or separately.

The Rat Pack Hideaway is one of the oldest properties in Palm Springs and was a film site of scenes from the Emmy award winning movie “Behind the Candelabra.” Once owned by actor Robert Stack in the 1950’s, it is then when Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. were known to favor the house for lavish parties. Five Star Adventures Tours has been giving upscale tours of Palm Springs for over 20 years. Under the Five Star umbrella, this family company also operates Shuttle Me Five Star, and Five Star Events. Their personal, upbeat events and tours are dedicated to keeping alive the feeling of the Golden Era of Hollywood in old Palm Springs.
