David Lynch to open Mulholland Drive inspired nightclub

Club Silencio will give fans a chance to sample the director’s weird and wonderful world first-hand

In possibly the coolest movie spin-off of the year, the unique vision of director David Lynch is to be distilled into a nightclub.


Club Silencio, named after a nightspot in Lynch’s 2001 film Mulholland Drive, is set to open this September on Paris’s Rue Montmartre.

The private members’ club is expected to feature a concert hall, a restaurant, a library, an art gallery and a private screening room, as well as a bar. It will open between 6pm and 6am, offering devotees of the auteur up to 12 hours of surreal nightlife.

Mulholland Drive focuses on the relationship between amnesiac movie star Laura Elena Harring and aspiring actress Naomi Watts (pictured with Lynch, above). It was originally intended as a follow-up to Lynch’s cult TV series Twin Peaks, and the iconic red drapes that appear in both are almost guaranteed to be a feature of the club.


Lynch, who designed the interior himself, said, “I enjoy how architecture and design create mood.”
