Take a stroll through the expansive PUMP Lounge from Lisa Vanderpump, owner of SUR and Villa Blanca and star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules. Soft open tomorrow but rolling hard on May 16, the kitchen is helmed by Penny Davidi, who recently cooked on Food Network Star, this three-part lounge is filled with celebrity power from the get-go.

Inside, a swanky garden patio laden with olive trees and stuffed with plenty of comfortable banquettes for star gazing while grazing on bites by Davidi. The interior features details personally appointed by Vanderpump and inspired by her time in France. That means glizty, colorful frills; wrought iron lamps that could scare a giant; plush pillows galore; and an impressive collection of crystal-laden chandeliers. The patio is sure to become a hot spot for Hollywood types, or at least the aspiration ones.

As for the food, a fairly long list of lounge-y fare like tuna tartare crostinis, heirloom tomatoes with burrata, shredded kale with goat cheese and dates, and herb gnocchi to start. For something more filling, an 8 oz. "Pinky Pump" burger, honey-roasted salmon filet, steak frites, and shepherd's pie. A little all over the place, but perhaps something for everyone.
