Cafe Lola, the decorated Vegas-based cafe known for its ultra-feminine decor, tea service and photographic interiors, opens on the Strip. The location is planned for late summer 2022 and will be inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace.
According to co-owners Alexandra Lourdes and Lin Jerome, the space will be designed in the same vein as the other two locations, with lots of pink, florals and velvet, but they will also bring new elements, including a walk-up from the window where guests can get their hair done, patio seating and a secret photo room. The new location will feature the cafe’s popular mother-daughter tea program and will be family-friendly with costumes and an extensive children’s menu.
