The Shindy


                       We love a party, always have, always will. Whether it is in a backyard, a hotel lobby, Mom’s kitchen, off the grid, in the city, in the forest or at the beach, a party is simple; the right people, the right place, the right time. Good music, good food, and good vibes; that describes all the best times of our lives.

The Shindy was born out of a deep love of life’s celebrations. Our vision is that this space is the backdrop of the most beautiful, fun, and memorable parties around for years to come!

Zack and Leilah Mundt are Costa Mesa business owners and residents. They married in Palm Springs in 2008 (talk about a party) and have one incredible daughter, Willa, and two rascally cats, Loki and Kiwi.
