Lisa Vanderpump’s Restaurants Liquor License Suspended For Selling Alcohol To Minors
This week’s Vanderpump Rules scandal has brought forth new developments. It has been revealed that Lisa Vanderpump, the owner of SUR Restaurant, has had the liquor licenses for two of her popular establishments, Tom Tom Restaurant and Bar and Pump Lounge, suspended.
Lisa Vanderpump is renowned for her vast network of bars and restaurants in the Hollywood, California area. Together with her husband, Ken Todd, she has owned and operated 36 restaurants, bars, and clubs across the United States and the United Kingdom.
The Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has suspended the liquor licenses of Lisa Lisa Vanderpump’s Pump Lounge and Tom Tom restaurant, both located in West Hollywood.
The suspension reportedly came after a routine inspection revealed several violations related to the sale and service of alcohol, including the sale of alcohol to minors.
According to ABC database, the violations occurred between July and September. The suspension went into effect on March 8, 2023, and will remain in place until the issues are resolved.
In a statement, the owners of the restaurants expressed their disappointment at the suspension, but emphasized their commitment to following all regulations and procedures related to the sale and service of alcohol.
Pump Lounge, located on the southeast corner of Santa Monica and Robertson Boulevards in West Hollywood, is co-owned by Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, experienced restaurateur, Ken Todd. The establishment opened in May 2014, attracting a number of reality TV stars.
With the 95th Academy Awards set to take place on Sunday, March 12, 2023, both Pump Lounge and Tom Tom Restaurant have a big weekend ahead.
The Academy Awards, which honor films released in 2022, will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and televised by ABC in the U.S. The event is expected to be followed by numerous Academy Awards parties throughout Los Angeles, Hollywood, and West Hollywood.
Given the recent suspension of their liquor licenses, the restaurants may need to resolve their issues promptly to participate in the festivities.
Tom Tom Restaurant had a soft opening in July 2018, followed by a grand opening later that month. Vanderpump and Ken Todd partnered with Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz to bring the establishment to life. Tom Tom was voted the Best Bar in Southern California by Los Angeles Travel Magazine.
Tom Sandoval and his Vanderpump Rules co-star, Raquel Leviss, have gone viral for engaging in a 8-month long affair, dubbed the “Scandoval.”
The “Scandoval” affair between Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss was recently revealed when Ariana Madix found incriminating texts and a screen recording of an intimate FaceTime between Sandoval and Raquel on his phone.
The affair has caused a stir among fans of the reality show and the VPR cast members have all iced out Raquel after she showed no remorse for the affair and took legal action against Scheana Shay — claiming she’s a victim of assault.
