Silencio Club

Arthouse icon, David Lynch, reimagines the member's club...

You only need say; “it’s a club, conceived and designed by David Lynch”, to guarantee a number of reactions. The dysfunctional icon’s warped visions are so ingrained into pop culture that almost anybody could imagine the dark, curious form that it may take. The reality – or perhaps; surreality – is housed in an 1883 Montmartre landmark, the basements being a former printing house for socialist and left-wing publications, and most recently where Justice recorded their † album.

It’s eerie, of course, and there’s culture – lots of it – from cinema to music, performance to literature, art to fashion… Silencio is not just a space realised by Lynch, but also a space where he can indulge its visitors with his unique cultural visions. Reserved for members and guests between 6pm and midnight, then open to all until 6am daily, Lynch’s Silencio owes more to an opulent, retro gentlemen’s club than it does its Mulholland Drive namesake, but there’s enough curiosities to please even his most ardent fans; not least in the beguiling custom furniture used throughout…
