Lisa Vanderpump promised “sexy” with her new West Hollywood gay bar, PUMP, and it looks like she’s delivered. Yesterday, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tweeted a photo of PUMP’s hot new staff with the caption, “It had almost beaten me… #pumpcoming.” Though PUMP initially ran into some legal troubles, it looks like it’s full steam ahead for the hot new restaurant, which is set to open to the public Thursday.
PUMP will be Lisa’s third restaurant, after Villa Blanca (which opened in 2009) and, of course, SUR (which opened in 2012 and is currently the backdrop to the business lady's solo spin-off, Vanderpump Rules). In addition to running two other restaurants, Lisa has her own line of sangria, called LVP Sangria.
"As they say, ‘Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life,'" she told LA Fashion Magazine back in October. "Be passionate about what you do. But of course we all need to tread water and pay our bills."
Lisa's garden-themed restaurant, inspired by her seven years of living in France, is sure to be a hit with the West Hollywood scene. "I wanted to create a garden that makes you feel like you're in paradise, like France," she told the LA Times. "I always look for what I think the market needs in a certain space. For this, it's very gay friendly because we are right in boy's town."
PUMP will be opening May 15. Prices range from $11 to $32.
