The auteur designed the members-only club based on a location in his film "Mulholland Drive."

David Lynch is already a filmmaker, television director, musician, visual artist and producer. Now he can add nightclub designer and owner to his long list of accomplishments.

Lynch opened a members-only club at 142, Rue Monmartre in Paris called Silencio on Wednesday. Lynch designed the entire space, based on the club from his film Mulholland Drive.

STORY: David Lynch Designing Furniture and Interiors for Paris Nightclub

Lynch, who did not attend the opening, said he spent two years creating the space. The furniture is 1950s inspired, and The Guardian describes the place as “somewhere between nirvana, a classy Cincinatti cocktail bar circa 1975, and Goldie's mouth.” Lynch designed the furniture in collaboration with designer Raphael Navot.

"Silencio is something dear to me,” Lynch told The Guardian. “I wanted to create an intimate space where all the arts could come together.”

Lynch’s only other non-arts related business is his own line of special organic blend coffees, which are available on his website.
