Ever wonder what it would be like to go to happy hour at Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Nick Jonas’s house? It certainly beats having another drink over Zoom, and we’re here to confirm that these two know how to put an event together. (Their 2018 wedding weekend alone is proof that they’re masters at hosting.)
“It’s a big deal, and I love getting an ice bucket and putting out various things so people can choose their own adventure,” Priyanka tells AD of their get-togethers. In fact, she’s become quite the mixologist since becoming the creative advisor for Anheuser-Busch’s spiked seltzer brand, BON V!V, last year. “I love being able to make cocktails fun, and the seltzers are an amazing base for anything you want to make,” she says.
Just as she puts personality into her beverages, Priyanka follows suit when it comes to interior design. Luckily, she and Nick couldn’t be more in sync. “I was really lucky in that I found someone who was totally understanding and accepting of my preferences,” he previously told AD. “She loved and accepted them in a way that you would want that person to do. I feel the same way with her life. And it’s great when two very individual people can become one and create a common ground of creativity.”
For more details about their home and what Priyanka is really like as a bartender, read ahead and see that they don’t mess around when it comes to drinks or design.
Architectural Digest: What are some of your happy hour tips?
Priyanka Chopra Jonas: I’m a fan of a nice charcuterie board and snacks, and other things to jazz up your drink like mint, cilantro, chocolate bitters, and a variety of other items to make it more fun. I also love BON V!V’s Pear Elderflower because it’s such a unique flavor.
Where is your favorite place at home to sit back, unwind, and have a drink?
My favorite room is an outdoor-indoor family room. It has an incredible view of all of L.A. and it’s right in front of a pool. That’s also where I wrote my book and do a lot of ideating because I see it as an extension of the sky. It’s one with nature and I love sitting outdoors in the sun.
Did your aesthetic change when you got married?
It didn’t change, actually. It’s been pretty much the same for at least the last two decades. The home is such an integral part of my existence because, like everyone else, I feel a sense of peace when I come back.
How did you and Nick design your home?
We always like every room to have a personality. I punch up a room with something fun…we have a jukebox in our living room and we have those big arcade games right next to a beautiful Ralph Lauren couch. I love the fun of high and low decor. I also love colors and art, so having personality in a home has always been important.
If you could buy property anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Are you kidding? I love that question, I would buy in the U.K. It’s beautiful. Or you know what, somewhere in Europe even, like Italy. I remember going on holiday in Montalcino and I was like, wow, I need to have a house here. It’s just beautiful being surrounded by vineyards.
Since you’re always out and about, do your travels influence how you style your space?
Wherever I go, I try to pick up something from that part of the world and that’s why my home is reflective of how I travel. I remember going to the Vatican two or three years ago. It was so beautiful and historic, and when I came out into the gift shop, there was this jewelry case with Michelangelo’s paintings from the Sistine Chapel. It’s one of my favorite things.
Are you jet-setting anywhere next? What’s on the horizon for you?
I have a lot of things coming up. I should have The Matrix 4 coming out at the end of this year, and a romantic comedy called Text for You, which I just did. Also Citadel, which is what I’m filming right now, and a few more exciting things. I’m working on multiple projects in different avenues. It’s such a creative year.
