Fashion Week, David Lynch & Card Member
We’re a bit late to talk about this one but we try to save the best things for last.
Named after the club in the cult movie Mulholland Drive, this place is run by Savoir Faire (DJ booking agency and the team in charge of the teen electro club Social Club) with the designÂ by legendary indie director David Lynch.
This time Savoir Faire is targeting an older, richer, creative-industry crowd, aiming toÂ compete with le Baron, le Montana, and Raspoutine. Â Over-hyped beginning six months before the opening and with the inauguration delayed many times, this place maintained a kind ofÂ mysterious aura dueÂ to the rumors of a card memberÂ system, the association with David Lynch, and the size of the place.
Opened in the beginning of September it was one of the Fashion Week hotspots (they hostedÂ events for a ridiculous amount of money and it was the place to meet a drunk Lindsey Lohan). Much more fancy than the dirty and mysterious club in Mulholland Drive, Le Silencio is maybe one of the most beautiful hangouts in Paris, on a par with le Raspoutine, hosting relevantÂ gigs, food andÂ cultural events–including film projections–for a trendsetting crowd. Sadly, even if the girls are usually really hot, in regular nights itÂ doesn’t get as crazy andÂ warm as places like le Baron due to the huge space.
