Welcome to Chippendales

November 17 – 20, Rocco’s

If you haven’t seen Hulu’s series, Welcome to Chippendales, it focuses on the life and dark career of Chippendales founder Somen “Steve” Banerjee. Now, whether you’re a viewer or not, Rocco’s is transforming the club, taking it back to 1979 West Hollywood where the entire story began. This 21+ event greets attendees with Hulu “cash” that can be redeemed for drinks, food, or branded merchandise. This is not to be missed. [More info]
