  • Old Gigglez space in Midtown to be re-branded as Kong's Tavern

    James Vu of La Brasa and his investment / development partner Shyon Keoppel have announced plans to remake the current Giggelz space in Midtown as Kong's Tavern.

    Kong's will be a sports bar featuring games, quality food, a full bar and a DJ on the weekends in the large space directly east of Saint Anthony Hospital at 1016 N. Walker.

    Vu & Keoppel recently announced they were taking over the space and bringing Chef Vuong Nguyen who provided a temporary menu with the new owners continued to operate as Gigglez in the short-term.

    Chef Vuong is formerly of Guernsey Park and Bonjour and will be collaborating with Vu on the menu. Vu said of the food, “There will be Kong's craft milkshakes, street food gastronomy vs. freestyle culinary. Just two guys being creative and having lots of fun.”

    Giggelz is operating for now but will close the first or second week of March then the grand-reopening will be St. Patrick's Day with a 3-day party feature live music and a DJ.

    The space is in the process of being fully updated with a large video wall, lots of TV's, games and a DJ booth above the bar.

    RBA of Oklahoma City is doing the interior and Larry Pickering is designing the patio on the west side of the space which will be partially covered with ample lounge furniture.

    Kong's signature will be an 8' gorilla statue facing Walker.

    Open every day 11-2, Sunday brunch.
