Anyone who watches Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump Rules, or both, knows that Lisa Vanderpump isn’t slowing down. In fact, it feels like she’s just getting started. The restaurateur has been consistently expanding her empire over the last few years, and as viewers, we even got a taste of that while her newest baby, TomTom, was developed on Pump Rules last season. But now, Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd, are stepping out of LA and trying their hand at a new restaurant in our favorite city of sin, Las Vegas.
“So happy to be joining the @caesarspalace family,” Lisa, 58, captioned a cute Boomerang vid of her dancing with the Caesars Palace statue on January 13. “@vanderpumpvegas coming soon! #VanderpumpVegas.”
Despite the lack of an exact date, fans and followers naturally flocked to the comments section of her post to send well-wishes and share their excitement for the RHOBH star’s new venture. “Omg! Another reason to go to LV,” one fan wrote, while another said, “Going this weekend!! Will it be open?? Hope so!!!!” We don’t know that you’ll have much luck with that one, unfortch, but let’s hope doors open pretty soon.
According to Us Weekly, Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, Lisa and Ken’s new Vegas spot, will be located in between The Colosseum and the entrance to The Forum Shops on the strip. The eatery’s ambiance is said to emulate the California feel of her most popular restaurants, aka SUR, Pump, and the newest of the bunch, TomTom.
“I have always loved Las Vegas — it has always been a dream of mine to see our brand in lights at the iconic Caesars Palace,” Lisa had said when the news of the new restaurant hit in November 2018 and we totally feel that. Lisa must be so proud!
Meanwhile, back on the home front, TomTom was nominated for Best New Bar by LA Travel magazine. Lisa and Ken share the venture with their proteges and employees, Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval, who are also cast members on Pump Rules.
“SWEET. High praise. Happy Sunday. Happy new year. Half shot to celebrate,” Schwartz wrote on Instagram on January 6 to celebrate the news.
Congrats all around, y’all! Let’s hope we get a glimpse of the new Vegas venture on this upcoming season of RHOBH.
