Villa Blanca is where you take your wife, SUR is where you take a hot date, and PUMP is where you take your boyfriend or fabulous gay best friend—or at least it will be soon, because it looks like Lisa Vanderpump’s latest venture is making a ton of progress.
She shared an update on Twitter, along with a photo (above) of the new space.
Life isn't all diamonds and rose..but it should be
Or diamond and darlings for that matter..
Pump is a coming…

Like Villa Blanca and SUR before it, PUMP seems to embracing Lisa’s penchant for flair, extravagance and greenery. The trees and foliage in the atrium of the future West Hollywood hot spot are gorgeous—just like the back patio at SUR—and go beautifully with the pieces of the property that are starting to take shape, like the rustic, arched windows and intricately detailed built-in bars throughout the place.
Lisa and Ken have been hard at work making PUMP a reality since last year, and frequently check in on the spot to see how construction is coming along. On top of all that, she’s still running her two restaurants and launching a new line of sangria! It’s a lot to juggle, but Lisa’s up for the challenge—and she loves every minute of it.
“As they say, ‘Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life,” she told LA Fashion Magazine back in October. “Be passionate about what you do. But of course we all need to tread water and pay our bills.”
“I feel as though I may be stretching myself too thin if I can be honest,” she said, referring to the latest additions to her empire. “But then there have been some incredible opportunities and sometimes you regret the things you don’t do rather than the things you do when opportunities come along.”
