Shoutout to all the early nineties kids out there!
Saved by the Max, a Saved by the Bell pop-up diner experience, is headed to Los Angeles in the very near future. But we knew that already.
The new news? A location has just been revealed, and if you live in WeHo (and you’re a fan of the classic Saturday morning staple) then this might make you very happy.
Yesterday the new diner confirmed the address of their soon-to-be home: 7100 Santa Monica Boulevard at the West Hollywood Gateway Shopping Center. Actor Dennis Haskins (aka Mr. Belding) announced the news in a video posted to the Saved By The Max YouTube channel.
Saved By the Max first came to the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago in June of 2016 and closed after a one-year run with plans in place to take the operation to the west coast.
The menu features typical American fare named after Saved by the Bell characters including Tori’s fried chicken, A.C. sliders, Mac & Screech, and the Kelly Kapowski Monte Cristo.
If the first iteration of the pop-up is any indicator, then visitors of the L.A. version can expect a high level of detail to sell the throwback vibe, from bright neon booths and formica countertops to vintage arcade games and a jukebox, all modeled after the set of the original series.
Tickets are not yet on sale for L.A.’s Saved by the Max but there is a waitlist via the official website.
There’s still no word on an official opening date, but stay tuned.
