Fans of Vanderpump Rules and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills now have a cocktail garden from Lisa Vanderpump right in Las Vegas. Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at Caesars Palace dishes out cocktails and small dishes, many found at the reality star’s restaurants in Los Angeles.
Over there, a chalkboard with some of Vanderpump’s favorite sayings (“Rosé all day and all night,” “My husband calls me a sex object. Every time he wants sex, I object.”), next to it, a grouping of family photos with one of a young Vanderpump standing at the entrance to the Forum Shops at Caesars, almost in the exact spot where her lounge sits. Another wall features Vanderpump’s famous dogs.
“We wanted fans to feel the experience of their other restaurants without duplicating them,” says Nick Alain, who had about 16 weeks to design the restaurant and spent about six weeks living at the resort as the final touches went inside the pink swaddled space with trees and foliage surrounding it. The patio juts out onto the casino floor with iron fencing and plants shrouding the space in mystery. A pair of tufted borne settes outfitted in dusty pink and smatterings of tables create an English garden setting. Ornaments and tube lighting hang down from 16-foot olive trees, giving the patio an almost fairy tale feel.
Vanderpump referred to the vibe as a juxtaposition of crazy Vegas and relaxing Vegas, inspired by an old Italian bar.
Vanderpump Cocktail Garden is open daily from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. A VIP package on weekends starts at $505 for four people up to $1,010 for eight that includes a food and beverage credit.
