Rita Ora really can take you ‘Anywhere,’ especially if you were at The Abbey in West Hollywood Tuesday night. The British-born songwriter and actress pulled out a full-on British themed takeover at the world famous gay bar to celebrate her latest album release, Phoenix.
Spotify’s “Fans First Event” invited 150 of Rita’s top streamers in the Los Angeles area to attend the pop-up concert. Fans were treated to a market styled entrance and newsstand, and even themed food and drinks. The hosted bar included a British Blackberry Bramble, sliders, and (of course) fish and chips.
Rita took to The Abbey stage and performed four songs from her new album, and welcomed singer Elena Sofia to the stage after her set. Not in attendance, however, was rumored beau Andrew Garfield.
Sources close to The Blast say the event was pulled off in less than week’s time, and the entire transformation of the bar took less than six hours. Blimey!
