Why did I create my blog “365 things that I love about France”?
One: I wanted to challenge myself to find something positive in my life every single day for one entire year.
Two: I love living in France.
France has given me and my family so much. I decided it was time to give back.
Every day for one year, I am going to put some positive energy out into the world by sharing my positive personal observations of this beautiful country and its kind and generous people.
This week, David Lynch opened a members-only club called Silencio at 142, rue Monmartre in Paris .
Based on the nightclub Silencio in his film Mulholland Drive, the club houses a bar, concert hall, art library and movie theater. This very private club allows access to members only from 18h to 24h, when it is then open to a non-member elite crowd until 6h.
David Lynch spent two years designing furniture with designer Raphael Navot
and working with partner, Arnaud Frisch, responsible for the trendy Parisian nightclub Socail Club as well as with the music label Savoir Faire.
"Silencio is something dear to me," says Lynch. "I wanted to create an intimate space where all the arts could come together."
The Guardian describes the place as "somewhere between nirvana, a classy Cincinatti cocktail bar circa 1975, and Goldie's mouth." There is a smoking room and a restaurant that serves finger foods all night.
Here is the trailer for Lynch's 2001 film Mulholland Drive. If you haven't seen it yet, I more than highly recommend it.
Oh, and, p.s. Mr. Lynch was born in Missoula, Montana. Definitely something in the water there as I well know.
