  • Bar supply and mixology store coming to Midtown

    Julia McLish has been bartending in Oklahoma City for some time and could never find a place with nice bar tools for both the professional or home host.

    So, she decided it was time to open a store and fill an obvious hole in the local market.

    Barkeep will open in April or May of this year in the Plaza Court building in the heart of Midtown.

    Featured items will be bar tools, sets and even carts. McLish said she plans to carry 'cool' items that go beyond the basics which will compliment home and professional bars alike.

    Barkeep will also have a full liquor license and will gladly provide in-store demonstrations on mixology and will even help you create your own unique drinks.

    The store will carry a wide assortments of bitters, syrups and garnishes and more importantly, will show you how to use them to create great cocktails. This will be done on an individual basis with the likelihood of adding classes on various drink-mixing themes.

    Upon opening McLish said the planned hours will be 11AM to 8PM Tuesday through Saturday. Depending on demand, hours may be expanded.

    At 1121 N. Walker, Barkeep will be right next to Insomnia Cookies and is yet another great retail addition to a stretch that already contains the Black Scintinilla, Commonplace Books (and soon their kitchen), Nhu Avenue, The Laboratory, Mode Fashion, Chirps & Cheers, Trade and also the Ambassador Hotel and many restaurants and bars.
