Nespresso recently opened their first ever flagship store here in Los Angeles, a boutique on Beverly Drive. With locations in both NYC and San Francisco, it was great to welcome a retail space here in LA. I happen to be a huge fan on Nespresso (as my Instagram and Twitter followers may know) and was excited when I received an invite to the exclusive launch party.

The new concept store features a slightly different vibe than previous stores. Contemporary furnishings with lighter finishes, such as the flooring, are all part of the new direction. The Beverly Hills location features a lounge area, an espresso bar for ordering drinks and food, and a retail space for purchases.

Nespresso welcomes tastings, a bar set up with machines is the perfect spot to come in and sample while browsing the assortment of products.

The colorful array of capsules are eye-catching (& make for a great display!).

At the opening night party I got to experience the great indoor / outdoor feel of the open space – perfect for Southern California weather!

The launch party was a packed crowd complete with performances by David Foster and American Idol alum Michael Johns. Along with¬†Tim Gunn, who we had the pleasure of meeting, hosted the night’s event.

The 18th annual Los Angeles Antiques, Art + Design Show opens this week, kicking off with an opening night party on Wednesday. The show opens to the public Thursday, October 10th and runs through the weekend. I attended the opening night party last year as well as toured the show – have to say, it’s a great event and not one to miss if you are here in LA! For a recap of my coverage from last year, check out my post here.
