Silencio, Famed French Nightclub, Opens in New York with Interiors by Harry Nuriev

The Parisian hotspot Silencio, originally designed by David Lynch with an outpost in Ibiza, adds New York City to its roster, with an aesthetic update by Harry Nuriev.

Last Wednesday night, the New York edition of Silencio opened its doors for an exclusive launch affair. Although “New York’s newest confidential club” won’t open to the public until later this month, select guests were given early access to the space to celebrate Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz’s new show at the Brooklyn Museum. (The married duo’s exhibition “Giants: Art from the Dean Collection” is on view now through July.) 

Silencio’s Artful Debut in New York

Owner Arnaud Frisch’s celebration of the New York City art world ensures that the club’s stateside installment will carry on the club’s tradition of cultural involvement– from pop-ups at Art Basel to parties at the Cannes Film Festival.

The Hell’s Kitchen location is only a short walk from the former Studio 54 building and pays homage to that iconic spirit. Originally opened in 2011, the first Paris location was famously designed by director David Lynch and owes its namesake to the fictitious theater from Mulholland Drive (2001).

The New York space, conceived by Crosby Studios’s Harry Nuriev, is swathed in a surreal floor-to-ceiling red, adorned with plush seating and gold details. The modern, sexy aesthetic is appropriately Lynchian but also true to Nuriev’s signature style. His work on the space manages to feel fresh and minimal yet still shrouded in the dreamlike quality for which the club is famous. 

The new space will continue its collaboration with cocktail master Remy Savage, serving up sophisticated signature drinks “designed as bridges between Paris and New York.” From 11 pm to close, guests can expect to enjoy DJ sets and live music from the most exciting local talent. Set to continue its eclectic mix of programming—including ongoing curated events from Waël Mechri-Yver—the New York City location will blend lively parties with other offerings like talks, screenings, and tours.
