‘90s nostalgia kids can rest easy on their neon-pink pillowcases tonight, knowing that rad Saved By the Bell pop-up Saved By the Max is coming to West Hollywood soon. The Chicago-based party team signed on for some unused restaurant space at the West Hollywood Gateway, a big shopping development off La Brea and Santa Monica that houses a Target, Starbucks, Mendocino Farm and, soon, Mr. Belding.

That’s right, Principal Belding is onboard for this restaurant reboot (or at least the promotion of it) dropping a video disclosing the new location while spouting off all his favorite catchphrases. Check it out:

Diners too will be able to relive their past glories by ordering up a full slate of Bayside High-attached eats. That means Tori’s fried chicken, a Bayside burger, and loads more from the actually fully functional eatery. What’s more, the place is going to be predictably decked out in all sorts of period-specific accoutrements, from the neon lighting schemes to the bright, bold artwork and zigzag lines that make the place pop.

No word yet on when tickets will actually go on sale for the limited-time run, but considering the former health food restaurant space is still under construction, expect things to take a little while. The pop-up should run for a decent amount of time though, making it more akin to Hollywood’s unofficial Star Wars bar than, say, the Los Pollos Hermanos feast from Breaking Bad.
