In the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, you’ll find the “Sierra Bonita” apartments from David Lynch’s “Mullholland Drive.” Located just a few blocks from the original site of Walt Disney Studios, the eight cottages are said to have inspired the animation designs for the dwarf houses in “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
Diane’s apartment unit used in the film is the cottage closest to Griffith Park Blvd, to the left of the front gate.

The Winkie’s Diner on Sunset Blvd is not actually on Sunset or even in Hollywood. The building can actually be found in the city of Gardena. The “Winkie’s” name was also created by the filmmakers. The real restaurant was at one time a Denny’s, before later becoming Caesar’s Restaurant. It currently sits vacant.
LOCATION: 1016 W El Segundo Blvd, Gardena, CA 90247
In one of the film’s more unsettling scenes, Dan, played by Patrick Fischler, is haunted by the image of a man behind a wall in the back lot of the restaurant. He makes his way down the sidewalk and stairs to the wall behind the restaurant, to face his nightmare.
As he approaches the wall, he collapses when he sees the man in his nightmares personified. As you can see, the wall appears a bit different now than how it appeared in the film, no longer extending out as far.
