Vanderpump Rules, the hit reality show on Bravo! lead by Vanderpump matriarch and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills diva Lisa Vanderpump, has taken over the restaurant and bar scene is Los Angeles. Lisa Vanderpump is a longtime restauranteur who even before fame was changing the game in the glam restaurant experience. After rising to fame as arguably the best housewife there is, Lisa opened her business to the cameras and launched what has become a force to be reckoned with in the name of celebrity restaurants in Los Angeles.
These are the establishments keeping Jax, Stassi, the Tom’s, and all the other hoodlums employed, including a couple of personal indulgences for the Princess herself.
SUR Lounge is the home of Vanderpump Rules and all its drama. This Lisa Vanderpump-designed restaurant and lounge serves South-European cuisine in a candle-lit setting on the prestigious corner of Melrose and Robertson in the heart of West Hollywood. Split into two separate sections, SUR Lounge on one side serving up the drinks made famous by the Vanerpump Rules cast and SUR Restaurant on the other with a distinct royal glam vibe. The cast doesn’t ‘work’ there unless the cameras are rolling, but if you’re lucky, you may catch them filming an episode during your visit!
PUMP Lounge is a masterpiece of Lisa Vanderpump’s imagination located on world-famous Santa Monica Boulevard, just a couple blocks north of SUR. The Tuscany-inspired, old-world decor gives a magical vibe to a hip, thriving restaurant. The century-old olive trees bring the decor together and are lit by candle-filled lanterns throughout the lounge. From a Parisian bridge to a stone fountain, PUMP may not be the home of Vanderpump Rules, but it’s no step-child in the eyes of Lisa. She pulled no punches when designing this place. With menu options ranging from traditional Italian to the famous Vanderpump Burger, and a ton of cocktails created by Vanderpump herself, PUMP is a must visit for anyone looking for celebrity restaurants in Los Angeles!
Serving Gourmet Mediterranean cuisine in a chic, romantic setting with Lisa Vanderpumps signature look: gaudy glam. Villa Blanca is located in the heart of Beverly Hills just a block from Rodeo Drive and is the perfect spot for tourists strolling these quaint streets looking for a bite to eat. This Vanderpump establishment targets a much more sophisticated clientele, in my opinion. The food is divine, the decor is refined, and the location is unmatched. It’s said that Lisa herself spends a lot of time, more than at SUR or PUMP, here at Villa Blanca. So, if you’re looking to meet Lisa instead of the rest of the Vanderpump Rules cast, check it out!
Thanks to all these places and Lisa’s hard work keeping us entertained on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she was able to afford this custom built mansion perched atop the Hollywood Hills. Known as “Villa Rosa,” Lisa and her husband Ken commissioned this property in 2011.
Down a long private & gated drive lies a triumph to contemporary architecture in a prime Beverly Hills location. This highly published estate, designed by Abramson Teiger, boasts grand oversized steel windows at the entry, capturing unobstructed canyon views. Custom built, this magnificent estate features the finest materials with no expense spared. Details include a two-story library with French polished ebony wood, reverse painted glass, walnut floors, exterior York Stone imported from England & hand-troweled plaster. The graceful open plan incorporates a massive great room with gourmet top-of-the-line chef’s kitchen, media room & luxurious spa-like master suite with his & her baths. Surrounded by mature oak trees enhancing natural privacy, the impeccably manicured two-acre grounds create a tranquil setting perfectly designed for outdoor living. Water elements, large swimming pool & exterior guest house are all cohesively designed for a luxurious experience.
Before you knock her for being “just a silly housewife,” keep in mind that Lisa and her husband Ken were mega-successful restauranteurs long before housewife fame. She’s no ditz, she’s the real deal. So, in case you’ve been living under a rock and didn’t realize the empire Lisa Vanderpump has built, now you know where to go to experience it for yourself!
