David Cooley, owner of The Abbey, and JetSuiteX announced a new partnership today to launch “Abbey Air”, bringing the party to the sky en route to Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party Palm Springs, the world’s biggest gay dance festival weekend.
Departing from Burbank airport on Friday, May 5 and returning from Palm Springs on Monday, May 8, “Abbey Air” by JetSuiteX will bring parts of The Abbey experience to the skies, allowing travelers to skip the traffic and fly to White Party Palm Springs with a quick 35-minute flight. The partnership keeps the party going from door-to-door, with a hangar pre-party and fares starting at $199 each way. Flights may be purchased by visiting jetsuitex.com, or by downloading the JetSuiteX app on iOS.
“I flew JetSuiteX to Las Vegas and instantly fell in love with the company because of their remarkable customer service and the luxurious experience for nearly the same price as a commercial ticket,” said David Cooley, Founder and CEO of The Abbey Food and Bar and The Chapel. “Working with JetSuiteX to create this pop up Abbey Air has been a dream come to true.”
“JetSuiteX is all about getting people where they want to be faster and more comfortably, and, for the people who are going to hop on this flight, where they want to be is The White Party,” said JetSuite CEO Alex Wilcox. “We’re allowing party-goers to skip lines, crowds and traffic on the 10 and fly exclusively between our private terminals in Burbank and Palm Springs. I can’t imagine a better way to kick off and wrap up a party weekend.”
While guests don’t have to arrive early for JetSuiteX, they may want to, as The Abbey Air by JetSuiteX experience starts at the Burbank Hangar, with a party hosted by David Cooley and featuring the world famous Abbey bartenders and DJs amping up travelers as they prepare for an unforgettable weekend at White Party in Palm Springs. Guests will board the JetSuiteX luxuriously configured 30-seat Embraer 135 aircraft, featuring The Abbey’s signature cocktails, like the Wild Berry Martini with Absolut Acai Berry and The Original Abbey Mojito with Bacardi Limon and a music mix by The Abbey’s resident DJ Dawna Montell. The return flight on Monday afternoon will feature a more mellow music mix, plus bloody marys and mimosas to help guests recover from a long weekend of dancing.
In Palm Springs, revelers can experience all White Party has to offer, including the ever glamorous RHOBH star Kyle Richards, dance parties, pool parties, fireworks, a Ferris wheel and more. Tickets to Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party and Renaissance host hotel rooms are available at jeffreysanker.com.
Abbey Air’s debut flight to Palm Springs is just over a week before E!’s new docuseries “What Happens at The Abbey” premieres on Sunday, May 14th at 10pm ET/PT. The series goes behind the bar and takes an inside look at the lives of the employees of the world-famous hot spot known as the best gay bar in the world. David Cooley is both executive producer and cast member of the series.
JetSuiteX, whose parent company, JetSuite, Inc., recently announced an investment from JetBlue (NASDAQ:JBLU), offers travelers the benefits of private travel – no lines, no waits, no cattle calls and comfortable, well-appointed regional jets – all at commercial fares.
The Strange Reality of a WeHo Without a Queer Nightlife Scene
WEST HOLLYWOOD (Los Angeles Magazine) — It was an epidemiologist’s worst nightmare set to the new Justin Timberlake/SZA collab from Trolls World Tour.
L.A. was hours away from shutting down all bars due to the coronavirus pandemic, but you wouldn’t have known it from the typical Sunday chaos on Santa Monica Boulevard, as throngs of people (some shirtless) crammed into West Hollywood gay bars like Mother Lode, Mickey’s, and Rocco’s for one last ungloved hurrah.
At Rocco’s, a drag queen in a black latex leotard bravely swooped her hand down to grab a dollar bill from a customer.
Another performer did the splits, touching the floor ever-so-quickly as she pulled herself up. Go-go dancers valiantly kneeled on bar tops, accepting cash in their […]
