“It’s truly very exciting for us to be asked to create a unique concept on the iconic Las Vegas Strip,” said Lisa Vanderpump. “We’ve so enjoyed our relationship with Caesars Entertainment, and we are excited to expand with two new locations. Through our design company, Vanderpump Alain, we are embracing the unique history of Flamingo Las Vegas, and the designs will be reminiscent of a bygone era. Caesars has allowed us the creativity to truly delve into the Art Deco style and create something that will encompass the stunning design of that time. The building will extend into a dramatic conservatory that will enhance the façade of the Flamingo on the Las Vegas Strip.”

Like her other locations, Pinky’s by Vanderpump (coined after Vanderpump’s nickname “Pinky”) will feature distinctive dishes, statement cocktails and the restaurateur’s signature design aesthetic. With a nod to the Flamingo’s vibrant history, the restaurant and bar will combine Art Deco glamour with sumptuous and decadent Vanderpump flair. Spanning nearly 7,000 square feet and set against a palette of muted greens, brass accents and blush pink, the space will boast a dramatic bar, Deco details and a stunning covered terrace settled into the Las Vegas Strip. Similar to Vanderpump’s other concepts, the design, lighting and fixtures will be bespoke Vanderpump Alain creations designed specifically for the space. The signature Vanderpump extravagance will also translate to the cocktail and food menu, with playful nods to the vintage theme, and some seriously Instagrammable moments.
“Nothing says distinctive design and unmatched hospitality like Lisa Vanderpump,” said Dan Walsh, SVP and General Manager of Flamingo Las Vegas. “Pinky’s by Vanderpump infuses a new energy into our resort, just steps away from one of the most famous boulevards in the world. We can’t wait for our guests to experience this unique restaurant and lounge.”
Pinky’s by Vanderpump will be in the former Purple Zebra space at Flamingo Las Vegas along Las Vegas Boulevard.
