“Steakhouse & piano bar.”
Considered "one of the best bars in California" by Esquire Magazine. An undeniable city icon, the Red Fox Steakhouse and Piano bar is located in the heart of San Diego's North Park neighborhood. The room was originally build in 1642 in England... The Red Fox Room was an old inn in Surrey, England and dates from around 1560. The three original rooms, slightly different in design, have been combined to form a spacious "tap room." The bar, back bar and the trim around the doors with the interesting small-carved figures come from Charles of London. The Tudor paneling and the fireplace with its finely carved mantel bear the date of 1642. The three arched panels tell the story of Rebecca and Isaac as found in Genesis, Chapters 24 and 27. The room was dismantled in 1926 and shipped to the United States for the petite, blonde cinema actress, Marion Davies, who was at the height of her career popularity. Beach homes were a must for the movie colony of those halcyon days, so when Miss Davies decided the song of the surf was a requirement for relaxation from studio demands, these rooms were dismantled, shipped across the Atlantic Ocean in sections, and then completely rebuilt as her "Ocean House." During the 1950's, this property was sold and Miss Davies' "Ocean House" was converted into a hotel. Some time later, the Red Fox Room was again dismantled and placed in Storage. It is from this source that the Red Fox finally found its resting place in the Lafayette Hotel in San Diego to once again be admired as such a beautiful room should be.
