Audigier shelling out $100,000 a month for Jackson mansion
Ed Hardy fashion king Christian Audigier, who owns the Club A project, aka Christian Audigier the Nightclub, at Treasure Island in partnership with Pure Management Group, will take over Michael Jackson’s rented estate in Los Angeles. The late King of Pop’s lease expires Dec. 15, and Christian says he will move in then and assume the $100,000-a-month rental!
The sprawling Holmby Hills, Calif., mansion is where the superstar died June 25, and Christian’s associate Michele Elyzabeth says the clothing mogul has no plans to turn it into a museum or open it to a curious public for sightseeing tours. “It will remain a private residence,” she said firmly.
Meantime, the fate of Club A at T.I. remains somewhat of a mystery after the exit of its sister restaurant, Social House. PMG says it has a lease in place to operate Club A there through 2015, but T.I.’s new owner Phil Ruffin has said he wants to install and operate a Gilley’s nightclub in adjoining space complete with a mechanical bull.
However, for the moment after a summer of guessing games about its future, Pure is announcing that Christian Audigier the Nightclub has returned to open with its new Sunday Funday promotions. The Arrive, Survive, Revive parties, complete with free admission and free drinks and spa package giveaways for the ladies, began this past weekend and will continue through the fall.
“By popular demand, we brought back industry night to Christian Audigier the Nightclub. Sunday Funday was designed to allow local industry types the opportunity to relax and socialize on a night that they can call their own,” said Deborah Krause, the new COO for Pure Management Group. “Every Sunday night, female clientele will receive free entry and free drinks all night along with the chance to win a part of the $750 in spa package gift certificates to the luxurious Eleven Spa and Salon located in Town Square.”
The nightclub is open Thursdays through Sundays beginning at 10 p.m.
