Twin Peaks pop-up diner is coming to London: Finally, somewhere to get a ‘damn fine cup of coffee’
Fans of the cult Nineties show Twin Peaks have recently found out the revival has been put on hold until 2017. So to whet their appetite in the meanwhile, a new immersive dining experience will transport London-based Twin Peakers into small-town America.
Coming to London in August 2015, The Owls Are Not What They Seem is a new adventure inspired by David Lynch’s surreal Washington town. Guests will feast on a three-course meal at the diner, including a slice of cherry pie and a ‘damn fine cup of coffee’, just like the one savoured by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper. There will also be an entire evening of entertainment where visitors can meet the characters and immerse themselves in the installations and sets. The evening will finish in a late night bar with secret missions, bespoke cocktails and more theatre.
Guests are invited to dress the part so they fit right into small town life. Think surreal small town/extravagant Lynchian chic such as Agent Cooper’s smart suits, Shelley’s waitress uniform or the Log Lady. There will be nightly prizes for the best dressed.
The Owls Are Not What They Seem is a new experience by events specialists Lemonade And Laughing Gas, who specialise in immersive, hyper-theatrical experiences and encounters, who have teamed up with food design and experimental wizards Blanch & Shock. Tickets go on sale at 12pm on Friday 17 July 2015.
- The Owls Are Not What They Seem will take place in a secret London location from 27 August to 21 November 2015. Tickets on sale from 12pm on 17 July 2015. Tickets: £65. Preview tickets for 27, 28 & 29 August at £50. Bar-only tickets: £5. For more information and tickets, visit NotWhatTheySeem.com.
