Celebration of Life

A mantra that is applied to every V Lounge Beach in loving memory of Nicole Penrod.

As the founder and owner of V Lounge Beach,  is involved with every facet of the luxury, lifestyle brand.

Everything was designed with my daughter Nicole in mind. The look is meant to be soft, friendly, carefree, beautiful and safe.

V Lounge Beach was created to celebrate the life of my daughter Nicole. We did not have any plans to become a global brand. However, the magic between our family concept and our customers created a demand. It was then that we decided to strategically expand V Lounge Beach worldwide, while keeping the core message behind V Lounge Beach (which is a celebration of life) by ensuring each location combined the elements of everything that Nicole loved into one: Music, dining, entertainment, fashion, film and art.”

"V Lounge Beach is a Celebration of Life."
