Saved by the Bell Pop-Up Brings Bayside to LA
Listen up, preppies: now you can dine at The Max just like Zach, Kelly, and the Bayside gang.
After its successful year-long run in Chicago, Saved By The Max is coming to Los Angeles. The pop-up diner, which looks like an exact replica of the set from mega-’90s sitcom Saved by the Bell, will officially open in West Hollywood in the spring.
And tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am for the May 1st launch.
On the menu? Show-inspired items like A.C. Sliders, Mac & Screech, Bayside Burgers, Preppy BLTs, and the Kelly Kapowski Montecristo. And a serious side of nostalgia.
The pop-up is committed to “the finest in chef-driven diner fare,” as stated in the press release. For its Chicago run, The Max employed chef Brian Fisher from Michelin-starred Schwa. The final LA chef lineup is yet to be announced.
Unlike The Max from the show, this diner also serves booze. The cocktail list includes an ‘I’m So Excited’ drink—a mix of vodka, Red Bull, and rosé—that hopefully won’t cause a Jessie Spano-like meltdown (we all remember that episode!).
Talent from the iconic show—such as Dennis Haskins, aka Principal Belding, Patrick O’Brien, better known as math teacher Mr. Dewey, and Ed Alonzo, who played Max—have all helped promote the pop-up through videos on social media.
With its proximity to NBC studios and Bayside High being set in Palisades, California, who knows who will show up at The Max’s west coast outpost (the real A.C. Slater, Mario Lopez, surprised diners in the Windy City).
A dream-come-true for SBTB fans, The Max will bring the best of Bayside to LA through October.
Don’t forget your scrunchies and acid-washed denim.
