Pump by Lisa Vanderpump opening

Does anyone know when this is opening ? Everything says later this month and my two co workers want to have a commitment /celebration there. I have called Sur and Villa Blanca but all I hear is later this month. Does anyone know if it's just a bar or will it have food? Or maybe a private room for a party.

  1. Eater LA says mid May and that since they give the name of the "chef" who will be manning (womaning?) the kitchen I am going to go out on a limb and say they will have food (g).

        Does not look like my kind of place. So I'll live vicariously, once again.

            The mere idea of visiting a place like this makes me reach for my revolver.

                  Not to mention its great steaks. Careful, we dont want to loose you too.

                  It's a quote from a Mission of Burma song which in turn is borrowed from a quote attributed to Herman Goering - "When I hear the word 'culture', that's when I reach for my revolver."

                  Apparently, the actual quote is, "When I hear the word 'culture' I flick off the safety on my Browning."

                  Those with the knee-jerk anti-gun reaction come across as ignorant more than anything else. Relax, people. I'm quoting a quote that was misquoted by someone else.

                      As part of your penance, it seems appropriate that you should!

                        in which case, i'll be off the site for good.

                        but pump is going to have a lot of salubrious eye candy, right ????????

                                    ok, i shall report back. that is if i don't get sidetracked to Tana's once again.

                    2. re: JeMange

                      When I hear the word "culture" I think of that old phrase by Dorothy Parker.

                  2. re: JeMange

                    oooooo, and food by a Food Network Star!
                    How can they go wrong?!?!?!?

          2. She'll have food and drinks….very upscale.

            Interesting location, right next to The Abbey.
            Let's hope this business lasts for more than a year, unlike
            the many before hers.
