Lisa Vanderpump officially opened her newest venue, Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, on March 30 — after a blowout opening weekend during which Caesars' famous fountains flowed with pink water and a throng of Bravolebrities mobbed a high-profile red-carpet bash.
So did you think The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules restaurant mogul was getting ready to rest on her laurels for a while, relaxing on the sofa with a tray of glittery pink macarons and Vanderpump Rose? Hardly...
While The Feast was in Las Vegas for the festivities, Vanderpump Cocktail Garden's designer Nick Alain — who also worked with Lisa on Tom Tom — teased, rather explicitly, a significant range of new projects set to spring up. "Here in Caesars, they’ve approached us and they’e asked if we can do a suite for them, which we’re very excited about," he explained. "We’re going to be doing the Lisa Vanderpump suite, which will be incredible. I'm very excited about that — hopefully we’ll move into [the location previously occupied by] another one, the famous Rain Man suite. We want to take that and just do our whole thing on that."
For context, the would be doing their "whole thing" over 3,500 square feet and two floors — so that's significant in itself. But the suites aren't all.
"Then from there, hopefully we can move into some other venues, some other projects, different hotels, different restaurants," Alain told The Feast. "We’ll try and duplicate this throughout. So we’re keeping our fingers crossed. It's all going to come together and we're very excited about it."
You might say this crew represents the hospitality business dream team. "Working with Ken and Lisa has been amazing — they’re incredible people," Alain told us. "They know exactly what they’re doing. I’ve never known anyone to be so zeroed in on their profession. Ken and Lisa have 32 restaurants in their pocket prior to this. It's an amazing thing, so it’s just been phenomenal working with them and I'm blessed to be a part of it."
