There’s a new night club in downtown San Rafael, but the only drinks served will be alcohol-free.
Their grand opening was on September 16th.
The DeepEnd at 919 Fourth St. is tailored exclusively for the under-20 crowd.
Starting at 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, patrons from 15 to 19 years old will be able to enjoy music, dance and socialize at the venue, the former site of the Fenix restaurant and music hall.
Steven Saunders, the Mill Valley resident who owns the club, opened it on Sept. 16. Saunders — a parent, soccer coach and president of the West Marin Youth Soccer League — said the county has needed something like this for a long time.
“We don’t need another bar, we need something for the kids,” said Saunders, who uses the name JoJo. “This is just for kids, where they can come and have a safe place and feel comfortable, with no drugs and no alcohol.”
To ensure the safety of guests, Saunders said, the venue has security staff to enforce strict policies prohibiting illegal activities. He said the guests must show identification at the door.
The club will provide snacks and non-alcoholic drinks for sale, and DJs will play Top-40 music, hip hop, electronic dance music and more.
