Curated to “capture your happy”
Los Angeles’ latest buzzed about pop-up exhibit Happy Place, curated to “capture your happy” will open its doors Thursday at its brand new location, L.A. Live’s Event Deck for a limited five week run, through May 27, 2018.
Happy Place launched their first location in the Arts District of downtown LA in November 2017 and instantly became a phenomenon, selling out all dates in just a few weeks and garnering national and international press coverage.
“Our team has worked tirelessly over the last few months to find the perfect new home for Happy Place where we can accommodate more visitors and we are so excited for all that L.A. Live’s Event Deck has to offer,” said founder of Happy Place Jared Paul. “I can’t wait for our guests to see the brand new installations we have added!”
People of all ages from all over the world came to take photos of friends and family jumping off a rainbow into a giant pot of 25,000+ smiley face coins, posing and playing inside of the largest indoor confetti dome in the world, and hopping into Happy Place’s signature yellow bathtubs filled with rubber duckies. Even celebrities stopped by, visitors include: Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kerry Washington, Adele, Khloe Kardashian, Olivia Wilde, Travis Barker, Hilary Duff, and Rashida Jones.
After nearly four months of re-imagining, Happy Place will once again open its doors bringing an even bigger, better, and happier experience to patrons. In addition to extended business hours and a bigger home, some new highlights include: twenty four, twenty foot tall fly guys greeting guests as they enter the experience, a 10 ft rubber ducky in the lobby, the “Ultimate Happy Room” – a brand new installation featuring cake pop servings and an all new balloon photo stop, and an expanded menu of instagrammable Happy Place food items, in addition to the instant favorite rainbow grilled cheese, including: rainbow cotton candy, gourmet rainbow popcorn, and a unicorn sundae.
