Entertainment and sports attractions are making Inglewood, California a highly desired destination for young professionals.

1010 Wine and Events, which recently opened in Inglewood, is owned by two sisters who understand the need to destress from the demands of a busy life. 

For Leslie Jones and LeAnn Jones, working together to merge their talents into one profitable business model has been a dream come true. They were able to go into business together because they both understand their role and they trust each other. 

“We literally have not had a slow night since we opened,” said Leslie. “We have been booked and busy. The community has definitely come out to show support.”

Whether you need a space for a babyshower, birthday party or something work-related like a fundraiser, 1010 Wine and Events is the perfect place to host your event.

Patrons are introduced to an array of over 90% Black-owned wines that are not offered in local grocery stores.

They also have a menu curated by Chef Kendra, owner of Swift Cafe on Crenshaw Boulevard.

Leslie brings her background in hospitality and event planning to 1010 Wine and Events, while her sister, LeAnn, provides her love of wine, which she discovered in law school. 

“I deal with all things wine and the logistics, the behind the scene stuff,” LeAnn shared. “Since Leslie is still an event planner, she deals with all things events and the design aspects that make 1010 look pretty.”
