Red Fish Blue Fish Opens With Best Sunsets on Beach
Innisfree Hotels is excited to announce there is a new place to enjoy a sunset on Pensacola Beach, FL. this summer. The hotel management company built Red Fish Blue Fish, an open-air dining and beach play venue, located on the water across the street from the Hilton Pensacola Beach Hotel. The restaurant opened in the fall of 2013.
It features shipping container construction, ‘upcycled’ materials and purposely designed outdoor spaces. “The concept offers a fresh new approach to beach hangouts”, notes Julian MacQueen, Innisfree’s Founder and CEO. “It has a casual vibe mixed with a very funky intentional design that we describe as ‘upcyled’, casual and ‘eco chic’. Guests are able to relax in an eclectic green space, kick back on repurposed boat wood furniture, wiggle their toes in the sand, and savor fresh seafood.”
Rich Chism, Director of Development for Innisfree Hotels says, “The concept is to use as many green attributes as possible. We’re investigating the use of solar power, and intend to expand our use of green energy over time.”
Outdoor areas were be designed by Chad Watkins of WAS Design. The site has a manicured grass dining area overlooking the water with family-sized tables, cabanas and fire pits. There are also cozy areas for cocktails, and two white sand beaches for those who want to stay a while. Kids will be encouraged to run and play throughout the site.
“The name Red Fish Blue Fish is a tip to the family friendly nature of the restaurant,” notes Julian MacQueen. “We’ve seen that our hotel customers enjoy dining on the hotels’ pool decks in a fun, safe, family-oriented environment. Red Fish Blue Fish offers locals and visitors to Pensacola Beach an alternative dining experience in keeping with the fun environment and high quality expected at a family resort. It also offers local families an opportunity to enjoy Innisfree’s hospitality without having to stay at a hotel.”
