It’s happening again! Showtime brings the Twin Peaks-inspired “Roadhouse Bar” to Los Angeles
It was one of the most anticipated reboots in television history, and fans of the show were in for a treat!
Even though Twin Peaks: The Return ended earlier this fall, die-hard David Lynch fans can enjoy fun cocktails until early January at Roadhouse Bar, a Twin Peaks-inspired pop-up bar and restaurant on Melrose Boulevard in Los Angeles.
The 90-minute Roadhouse Experience lets you try cocktails inspired by Twin Peaks, with expert bartenders to guide you through the world of Twin Peaks.
From now until the new year, Melrose Umbrella Co. has completely transformed into a Northwestern bar serving Showtime-approved dishes and cocktails.
For daring guests brave enough to venture into the sinister watering hole, Roadhouse Bar will offer a cocktail menu inspired by Twin Peaks. Many of their menu highlights include Gray Goose cocktails: The Laura Palmer and The Diane and you’ll even be able to try a serving of the infamous Cherry Pie.
The Diane: Trace described as “an intriguing cross between a saint and a nightclub singer” in a classic on-the-rock martini with an unexpected orange twist.
Laura Palmer: A sweet and seemingly innocent blend of Gray Goose vodka infused with strawberries and pink lemonade, topped with blackberry black tea—a dark twist familiar to viewers.
Cherry Pie That Will Kill Ya: – A delicious concoction of graham cracker washed vodka, vanilla liqueur, cinnamon, and sour cherry reduction

The 90-Minute Experience will run until the New Year and there is a Double R Diner inspired brunch menu that will be serving food from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Buying time periods here.
With very limited time on Melrose Avenue, these unique cocktails are worth a “trip” to Twin Peaks, Washington before the New Year.

Special Agent Dale Cooper, played by Kyle MacLachlan, knew Double R was the place to get a ‘good cup of coffee’, and Messina recreated that feeling with an ice cream donut with caramel coffee.
Norma, owner of Double R was known for her cherry pie and Messina’s Incredible Cherry Pie begged fans to tuck into cherry syrup filled with short gelato and topped with layers of cherry compote.
If there was ever any doubt about interest in the reboot, one has only to look at the front of the venue with fans lined up around the block, climbing to get their hands on a David Lynch-inspired dessert.
The classic scene: “Hi, Agent Cooper,” says Laura Palmer, the older but unmistakably victim of the Cooper case in Twin Peaks, in reverse. ‘Do you know me?
Twin Peaks followed an investigation into the murder of famous homecoming queen Laura Palmer in the fictional Washington town of the title. Headed by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper, played by Kyle McLachin, the investigation took many left-of-centre twists and turns.
Beginning with crime dramas, the narratives incorporated horror, the supernatural, and the surreal, underpinned by David Lynch’s unique direction. Often regarded as one of the greatest television dramas of all time, Twin Peaks ran for two seasons from 1990 to 1991 and was followed by a prequel in 1992, Fire Walk With Me.
