Drake's Hollywood VIP Grand Opening

| December 10, 2019 | Parties

On a warm December evening, a set of glittering socialites gathered in the Bluffview neighborhood of Dallas to celebrate the grand opening of Vandelay Hospitality’s newest restaurant & lounge, Drake’s Hollywood. Upon entering through the tufted red leather doors, the well-dressed group gathered around the bar for cocktail hour, sipping on Drake’s’ staple ice-cold martinis and browsing its impressive Los Angeles-inspired cocktail list.

Drinks in hand, the crowd soon made its way to plush leather booths for dinner. On each table, a Drake’s branded disposable camera was provided for guests to document their own evening revelries. The martinis continued to flow, and soon each table was filled with noshes, “Melrose” pizzas, steaks, caviar served with blinis, and other selections from Drake’s’ fun menu. During the after-party hosted in the lounge, more friends filled the sexy, low-lit space while DJ JT Donaldson kept the spirits lively until 2 am.
