Ludo Racinet (Owner)

A native of Paris, France, he moved to California at the age of 18 to escape the more influent conservative landscape of France. Finding refuge in San Francisco he embraced the food and beverage industry. His first entrepreneurial start up was in the organic ginger juice business, selling to all local heath food stores. In 2000 he opened the Tunnel Top, in 2008 Madrone Art Bar,  & in 2011 Bouche Restaurant, (a small Romantic gem in the heart of San Francisco). In 2015 he made the decision to sell the Tunnel Top and spend time with his family and a year surfing the waves of Nicaragua and Indonesia. Now he returns to the neighborhood he knows so well to pursue a daring new project that becomes Bar Fluxus.
