KJLA Grand Opening!

After hours and hours of hard work, blood, sweat and tears, Kinsley James Los Angeles is officially open for business! To celebrate the launch of our new location, we held a Grand Opening Party! The setup was beautiful thanks to the many vendors that worked with us to make this event so special.

Sweet E's Bakeshop's beautiful cake was the perfect showstopper for our Grand Opening. Just look at the detail! They also provided delicious treats for our dessert table!

Bouquets on bouquets! These amazing flowers were done by Posh Peony and looked excellent with the color scheme of the whole party.


The mouth-watering appetizers were done by Jonathan Pimentel Catering. 

  • Braised beef with mustard aioli au jus, garnished with dill, and served with a dehydrated potato chip
  • Jerk chicken confit served on top of a plantain chip, and garnished with pickled onion
  • Shrimp ceviche with garlic, onions, mini bell pepper trio, lemon, lime, tomato, and served on top of cucumber

Talented LA bartenders Nick Estep and Suzy Franco served beautifully prepared drinks garnished with edible flowers. The drinks were a huge hit!

The Classy Annegin, lemon, maraschino liquer, and creme de violet

Kinsley's Main Squeeze - vodka, lemon, curcao, and grenadine

The James - bourbon, maraschino liquer, orange, and angostura bitters
