The Fenix - Cutting Edge SLPR in Downtown San Rafael
Tremendous Opportunity for the Music Minded in Downtown San Rafael
San Rafael, CA
Meet the Fenix, a cutting edge SLPR (pronounced slipper; streaming live production restaurant ). Believed to be the only one of its kind in the world today, this restaurant is a live production house, acoustically treated, state-of-the-art restaurant streaming live to the web six nights per week. With music royalty over 1,100 past shows available on the web, over 130 countries watching with 300,000 views, consuming over 4 million minutes…this place is like no other. It is oozing with innovation. “You can feel it the moment you walk through the door,” says Merl Saunders Jr, Executive Director, and commonly referred to as “The Music Man”. Every room is acoustically designed by world renowned acoustic designer, John Storyk. Some rooms are acoustically vibrant like the green room for musicians to warm up, and some rooms are quiet. The main hall is treated with over 2100 square feet of acoustic wall material, installed with state-of-the-art equipment. This professional live surround-sound music effect is designed to give listeners an acoustic massage and bring quality live audio-video shows from the venue to the web.
While the music is remarkable, the food is also produced by one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s most innovative chefs. Chef Glenn “Gator” Thompson has created his own version of unique cuisine called Neo Soul, a blend of gourmet southern cuisine with a healthy twist, infused with southern lovin’. “Mama would be proud,” says Gator.
If you are looking for the typical restaurant experience, this is not the place for you. For diners and music aficionados, this new innovation is like a modern music discovery museum, laced with European style dining. “Sit, eat, drink, smile, and enjoy the acoustic massage,” says owner, Laura van Galen. “No matter what your music preference is, loud, moderate, or soft in nature, there is
something here for everyone.”
The Fenix is located on the busiest block in Central San Rafael. Near shops, restaurants and banks and is within close proximity to the Courthouse Square Offices and Rafael Theatre. The interior was extensively remodeled in the mid-90’s and again in 2011-2012. The Fenix is a stunning space with skylights, marble flooring and theatre grade lighting. This incredible space has a historical meaning to the City of San Rafael as the former Saloon and See’s Candies. Over $2,000,000 has been spent to upgrade this property over the last 20 years.
