To learn how to get an old-school haute-holiday glow, April Long visits Palm Springs, the home of timelessly chic hot-weather beauty. Long before Coachella lured legions of caftan-clad music lovers to its environs, Palm Springs, California, was a hot spot for high-class hedonism: In the 1950s, legend has it, Frank Sinatra would hoist a Jack Daniel’s flag outside his estate to alert neighbors Cary Grant and Jack Benny that cocktails were being served at his famous piano-shaped pool; the owners of L’Horizon hotel—a midcentury-modern marvel where Marilyn Monroe once caused a stir by showering alfresco—were known for throwing three-day-long parties in which guests were whisked by private jet from Palm Springs to San Diego’s Kona Kai Club, with a stop for dinner in Disneyland.

It was Dinah Shore Weekend in Palm Springs — or the Dinah, as it’s known — five days of Sapphic revelry that every April draws some 15,000 women from around the country to this sun-washed city 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles. On Saturday evening, however, the hottest ticket in town may not have been the L Word Pool Party, but a relatively low-key cocktail reception hosted by the Palm Springs Art Museum to benefit its new Architecture and Design Center.

Frank Sinatra debuted one of the most swinging Palm Springs traditions in the 1950s: Almost every night he was at his Twin Palms Estate (which still stands today), he’d raise a Jack Daniel’s flag at 5 p.m. to alert his friends and neighbors to come over and partake in happy hour around his piano-shaped pool.
