Heading to London over the next few months? Fan of Twin Peaks? Well you’re in luck, as a pop-up restaurant has been planned, giving diners a unique Twin Peaks experience.
“Twin Peaks” fans who happen to be in London in the next few months can sign up for an “immersive dining experience” at pop-up restaurant The Owls Are Not What They Seem. Named for one of the TV shows’ iconic phrases, the experiential dinners will likely feature cast members interacting with diners as chracters from the 1990s show. The experience is curated by event company Lemonade and Laughing Gas and food designers Blanch & Shock.
Tickets to the three-course meals, which run from August 27 to October 16, are just over £100 and include a cocktail and admission to the “drinking den.” The full dinner experience, for diners 18 and over only, is meant to simulate “a tour of small-town American, and a slap up at the Double R, with some familiar faces here and there,” according to the event’s website. Entry to just the bar portion will simulate “a quick pit-stop at the RoadHouse, with potential to turn into a full on Red Room experience.” Though the menu hasn’t been released, it seems inevitable that the series’ signature pie, coffee and donuts will be served.
Filming on the new series on Twin Peaks begins in September, with David Lynch returning to direct a whopping 18 episodes.
The location of filming will once again be the gorgeous Pacific Northwest, including North Bend and Snoqualmie, WA. Twede’s cafe (above) in North Bend will again be transformed into the Double R Diner, so expect to see plenty of fine coffee and cherry pie.
Long time Twin Peaks (and regular David Lynch collaborator) music composer Angelo Badalamenti will return to create more offbeat music for the new series.
