Published Feb 18, 2021Vancouver's one and only Twin Peaks bar, the Black Lodge, has announced it will be closing for good.
Late last night, the beloved Mount Pleasant restaurant and bar announced it will cease operations later this month, meaning its homage to David Lynch will sadly be coming to an end.
"There's no easy way to share this news with all you lovely humans, but Sat Feb 27th will be our last day of service," a post from the Black Lodge reads.
"This past year has had its fair share of obstacles for everyone, but we have been extremely fortunate to have had so much support from many loyal and incredible customers during these times. Thank you to all the customers, staff and other local small businesses, suppliers & breweries that have kept this place going through good times and bad. Our staff past and present for standing by us and making this rewarding and meaningful, you mean so much to us! Words cannot express the gratitude we have, to have been able to serve Mount Pleasant these past 8 years!"
The Black Lodge first opened on Fraser and Kingsway, before branching out with a second location at 317 East Broadway back in 2017. The original location (pictured above) closed its doors not long after that.
As to why the Black Lodge is calling it a day, the post stated: "While covid has definitely played it's part in our decision, it's also more complex than that. Simply put, we always knew that there was more we wanted to accomplish in the future, and that there would be a day where we would decide to close. The pandemic has gifted us a reminder of how short, sweet and precious life is, and even though it is very sad to let go and say goodbye, we are also very excited about what lies ahead."

Exclaim! would also like to thank the Black Lodge for hosting more than a few staff outings over the years — whether they knew we were lurking there or not.
