THE FENIX NIGHTCLUB RISES AGAIN
Longtime Seattle nightclub owner Rick Wyatt brings a legend back to Pioneer Square by reopening The Fenix.
Grand opening featuring Hell’s Belle’s planned on New Year's Eve.
Like the mythical creature rising from the ashes of its predecessor, The Fenix will reopen in its sixth incarnation at 124 S. Washington St., the former location of The Last Supper Club, less than a block from the last Fenix nightclub.
According to owner Rick Wyatt, a veteran of the Pioneer Square bar/nightclub industry, the new venue is another milestone in Fenix history. The club will feature a 400-capacity street-level showroom, with a stage and full bar, as well as a large mezzanine overlooking the main floor. The club includes an underground space, Level One, with its own bar and stage. This gives the ability to host a variety of entertainers on multiple stages on the same night. As in the past, The Fenix will have an intimate, come-as-you-are vibe.
The Fenix will feature local and national live music acts as well as a variety of DJs spinning various styles of electronic dance music. Theme nights will showcase Seattle’s growing burlesque and erotica scene. The Club's multiple TV’s and updated sound system will host overflow from sporting events in the neighborhood, creating an venue that is a little bit of everything; music venue, nightclub, restaurant and sports bar.
"The Fenix represents the official return of live music to Pioneer Square," says Wyatt, who opened his first Fenix on Yesler Way nearly two decades ago. "It’ll be a full swing back. After we open, Pioneer Square will have a half dozen live-music venues -- The Fenix, Fuel, the J&M Cafe, the Central Saloon and the New Orleans Creole Restaurant."
The Grand Opening will take place on New Year’s Eve 8:00pm Tuesday, December 31,and will feature Hell’s Belle’s, an all-female AC/DC tribute band, with special guests. The club’s resident DJ will preform on Level ONE and offer an electronic mix of rock & roll and EDM mash-ups.
