The Story


When the sienna sunset sinks beneath the desert horizon, a stir is heard in the brush. A wandering traveler, a nomad, makes his way across the sprawling landscape. He’s soon joined by a small, light-footed creature—a fennec fox—who trails at his heels. As twilight spreads across the sky, the fennec draws nearer, until man and fox are traveling side-by-side, companions in the dusk. Led by the white light of the rising moon, together they search for a nighttime escape, a place where roamers and ramblers can come together, raise a glass, sip a handcrafted drink, share a meal, and move to the rhythmic pulse of the music. A place to feed their souls. An oasis...


The fennec fox is a small desert-dwelling fox with a big personality, and the inspiration behind our name. A creature of the evening, the fennec enjoys a lively social life after the sun goes down. Its large ears, evolved for listening for sounds in the sand, have a new purpose—taking in the unparalleled sound quality only heard at The Fennec. This breed of fox is rare to encounter in the wild, just as The Fennec itself is an uncommon experience, a one-of-its-kind oasis in Birmingham. With nightly live music, an intimate stage setting, a well-crafted menu, a chic cocktail lounge, and even an elegant event space, there really is nothing else like The Fennec.
