West Hollywood, California, July 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Abbey in West Hollywood is excited to announce the Cherlato Residency and pop-up throughout the month of July. This unique pop-up features several delicious Cherlato flavors including ‘Juniper Nights’ – a brand-new creation inspired by The Abbey itself.  Cherlato, the delicious gelato brand created by Cher is made fresh every day using organic locally sourced ingredients.

Following the spectacular star-studded recent relaunch of the Abbey by Tristan Schukraft where the Cherlato pop-up debuted, The Abbey confirmed that the pop-up will include a rotating selection of Cherlato throughout the month including:

  • Chocolate XOXO
  • Juniper Nights – Kefir & Juniper
  • Vanilla Caramel Swirl
  • Lemon Berry Fusion

The Abbey served Cherlato over the Fourth of July holiday and it was a huge hit! Cherlato will be available in The Abbey’s Bakery throughout July, offering a delicious way to celebrate summer.

 “After the incredible success of our Cherlato ice cream truck, especially the amazing support and love from the LGBTQ+ community, The Abbey — a favorite hangout for so many of my friends, it felt like a perfect fit for our first Cherlato residency,” commented Cher.

Cher, the legendary pop icon, made a surprise appearance at The Abbey’s recent star-studded relaunch, captivating guests with her presence and setting the stage for this unique collaboration. The Cherlato Residency is set to celebrate Cher’s long-standing connection with the LGBTQ+ community and The Abbey’s new era under the visionary ownership of Tristan Schukraft. 

Tristan Schukraft, owner of The Abbey, expressed his excitement: “We’re thrilled to host the very first Cherlato residency and celebrate Cher’s incredible legacy and bond with the LGBTQ+ community. You can enjoy Cherlato on the patio after dinner or late night on the dance floor. The Abbey and Cherlato are a perfect night out.”

Cherlato was successfully launched in LA last summer where the colorful Cherlato truck visited many local locations including The Abbey and became a favorite and refreshing treat enjoyed by thousands.
