With 30 years of experience as a nightclub owner and special events creator, Marsha’s business savvy and innovation have enabled her to successfully create a niche in a predominantly male-driven arena. “I’ve been in this industry for a very long time”, says Marsha. “My very first venture was The Turf Club located on Market Street in downtown Inglewood. She loves the hospitality/entertainment industry and has owned and operated several restaurants and lounges from Los Angeles to Palm Springs. “With Lavender Blue”, Marsha says, “I wanted to create a venue that would provide an exquisite, yet comfortable entertaining and dining experience within the community. I have a love for entertaining and Lavender Blue allows me to entertain in a big and unique way.
