Last night, Vanderpump à Paris at Paris Las Vegas hosted its highly anticipated grand opening event, officially welcoming guests to the Parisian-inspired restaurant. To commemorate the occasion, television icon and philanthropist Lisa Vanderpump stunned guests with an extravagant red carpet arrival as they made their way into the picturesque destination.
Vanderpump was joined by some of her famous friends for a star-studded opening, including Lance Bass, Kym Whitley and Garcelle Beauvais. Additionally, cast members from “Vanderpump Rules” enjoyed the party, including James Kennedy, Lala Kent, Ariana Madix, Peter Madrigal, Katie Maloney, Scheana Marie, Brock Davies, Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz.
“Opening Vanderpump à Paris has been a labor of love,” said Vanderpump. “After living in France for so long, I am so happy to bring something to Paris Las Vegas that feels so decadent and authentic. We’ve been able to bring Paris to life within an iconic Vegas resort, and you’ll immediately feel transported to the sexiest bar in France. Featuring all of our bespoke creations by Vanderpump Alain, our intention was to create something truly unique and magical, and I hope everyone enjoys the experience as much as we do.”
Designed by Lisa Vanderpump and long-time design partner, Nick Alain, Vanderpump à Paris instantly transports guests from the Las Vegas Strip to an enchanting old Parisian courtyard. As the 36th establishment and second Las Vegas venue for Vanderpump, the restaurant features plush velvet art nouveau banquettes, adorned with oversized, ornately embellished pillows, as well as light fixtures and custom-made furniture from Vanderpump and Alain’s celebrated design line, Vanderpump Alain. Additionally, the space is enhanced by a breathtakingly long, white marble bar embedded with crystal chandeliers in wrought iron cages, unique bronze umbrellas situated on top of the marble, and massive windows that overlook the Eiffel Tower and Seine River, flooded with rain. The entire bar offers a magical and realistic escape to a cozy rainy day in Paris.
The cocktail menu features unique and never-before-seen offerings. Guests can delight in carefully crafted cocktails that showcase the Vanderpump family’s creativity, including the signature LoveLocked cocktail, a delicious cocktail for two, one glass of which features a padlock and the other glass a key. Couples can write their initials on the back of their padlock and lock it onto a gorgeous wall in the restaurant, leaving their memory at Vanderpump à Paris forever. Similarly, the Louvre at First Sight cocktail nods to the Louvre museum in Paris, delivered inside a glass pyramid filled with hickory smoke that clears to reveal the decadent smoked prickly pear cocktail inside. A Vanderpump favorite, the French Poodle is a well-balanced blackberry gin sour topped with a pink poof of cotton candy and edible gold flakes. The Parisian inspiration extends to the expansive wine list, with a vast variety of selections, as well as the Vanderpump family’s signature branded Rosé, Chardonnay and Cabernet.
“We are ecstatic to bring Lisa Vanderpump’s elegant aesthetic to Paris Las Vegas with the opening of her second Las Vegas location, Vanderpump à Paris,” said Jason Gregorec, SVP and General Manager of Paris Las Vegas. “We could not think of a better partner than Lisa to enhance the growing list of world-class culinary talent at our resort.”
Lastly, the charming escape features a menu of reimagined Parisian classics, including delicious light bites such as Ratatouille Frites, a colorful mix of spiralized and fried vegetables; Trio of Tartares, featuring three seafood tartares artfully prepared as roses; and a wickedly decadent French Onion Mac & Cheese. Experience a taste of France through the Birdcage aux Fromages, a decadent cheese board served vertically in a vintage-inspired birdcage; Mini Monsieurs, tiny croque monsieurs tied up with twine; or the classic Coq Au Vin Pot Pie inside a puff pastry vol-au-vent.
For a sweet and unforgettable night on the town, guests can indulge in sumptuous dessert cocktails like the Pain au Chocolat Martini, complete with a tiny chocolate croissant, or the Café et Beignet, a rich espresso martini served with a sugar-dusted beignet.
Vanderpump à Paris is located across from Café Americano and is open Sunday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to midnight and Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. For more information, visit caesars.com/paris-las-vegas/restaurants/vanderpump-a-paris.
