A new restaurant will try to succeed in a location on 13th Street where many have failed, as Boulder restaurateurs the Emich triplets open Shine Restaurant and Gathering Place.
The eatery’s location, 2027 13th St., has changed hands at least five times since 2009, from RedFish to the Colorado Brewing Company to the Boulder Draft House to Los Oasis, which closed in September.
Shine will separate itself from past occupants in a few ways, says co-founder Jill Emich, who along with sisters Jennifer and Jessica, hopes to build on the success of former Boulder restaurant Trilogy.
Most notably, Shine will benefit from a strong working relationship with landlord Stephen Tebo, founder and owner of Tebo Development, which owns the property. If high rent contributed to other restaurants failing in the space, Jill Emich says, the owner has offered to help Shine.
“We’ve worked with him in the past and he was very willing to work with us on what we can do in that space,” she says. “We said, ‘This is what we can do numbers-wise,’ and he worked with us on that.”
In the back, Shine will host live music and dancing, Emich says, with an emphasis on the flexibility of the space.
“The space is very versatile. It’s going to be live music, private events, private parties, all kinds of stuff,” she says. “The stage is being custombuilt so we can move it around and have more room for dancing, and if it’s a bigger band we can accommodate that.”
