Meditation enthusiast, iPhone hater, musician, entrepreneur, and occasional film director David Lynch has announced plans to open a real-life version of Club Silencio from his 2001 film Mulholland Drive in Paris' 2nd Arrondissement.
Lynch will be collaborating with nightclub and record label owner Arnaud Frisch to create a space that will evoke 1920s Paris, housing "a bar, concert hall, art library and in-house movie theater." Once it opens in September, it'll be members only from 6 PM to midnight, but after that, it'll open up to the "elite" public.
The idea is to create a "salon that brings together an international who's who of artistic professionals in one place and to facilitate creative exchanges and even future business deals." What is unclear, as the AV Club keenly points out, is whether or not there will "be discounts for women who have just had their first exploratory lesbian commingling."
