    Lisa Vanderpump’s Iron Gate and PUMP Signage Move to Tom Tom Restaurant

    The iron gate and PUMP signage from Lisa Vanderpump’s freshly closed restaurant have moved a few doors away and are currently gracing the main entrance of the front patio of Tom Tom Restaurant located at 8932 Santa Monica Blvd. The golden PUMP letters at the restaurant owned by Lisa, Ken Todd, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz are in memory of the shuttered restaurant which closed on July 3rd after being open for roughly ten years.

    A hostess at Tom Tom tells WEHO TIMES that the letters may not stay up there for long. She said management thought the sign may be too confusing for customers who are lining up to take pictures of it, many not familiar with the fact that the actual PUMP restaurant is no longer.

    PUMP Restaurant (or PUMP Lounge as it has often been called) was cleaned out this week. The famous large gold letters came down yesterday, Thursday, July 13, 2023. A set of the PUMP lettering was last seen stacked at the back of a pickup truck along with other items as they made their way to storage. The furniture is gone, chandeliers have been removed, and the gate was swapped with Tom Tom’s smaller gate. Also the future of the beloved olive trees is currently uncertain. Their life expectancy is at the hands of the next entity to take over the space.

    Pump Restaurant Closure – WEHO TIMES

    News of the closure was announced on May 4th via a Vanderpump statement, in response to rumors and reports that the space had been listed for lease on LoopNet, the online marketplace for commercial property, which listed the 2,865 SF space as a storefront retail.

    “It’s with heavy hearts that we announce that the lease at Pump Restaurant is expiring and we will be closing its doors on July 5th, after ten years of beautiful evenings under our olive trees,” read the statement. “As a family, we are looking to the future of the Vanderpump establishments and will be opening at least two more restaurants with Caesars Entertainment in the coming year. While we have loved our time operating Pump, to take on another 10-year lease with a huge increase in rent by the landlords, is not something we are ready to commit to. After successfully running 37+ establishments for many years, this type of rent is untenable.”

    The closure of PUMP restaurant was filmed for the next season of Vanderpump Rules. The restaurant becomes part of West Hollywood history, but PUMP lives on at Tom Tom restaurant–at least for now.

    Nudity prevails in this town …I had sex in every single one of those bathrooms at pump and I love every single bit of it I guess you could say that I’m going to get pumped at Tom Tom’s!!!

    The letters look like alphabet soup. I wish they’d line them up neatly like the original sign.

    Foolishness. It is widely known that Lisa V hasn’t paid rent in over 10 months. She got all that PPP money and they didn’t pay rent. They also didn’t pay their liquor license fees and it was suspended. It’s been widely documented, so maybe you need to wake up sleepy head.

    I agree. What else can be said. Now is the time for true forgiveness, and go forward.
