  • Restaurant and bar set to front Scissortail Park

    In what would be the first private development along the under-construction MAPS 3 Scissortail Park, a former transmission shop is set to be transformed into a one of a kind bar restaurant with a heavily emphasis on craft beer and a desire to create a community space in this burgeoning downtown area.

    The new operation is yet to be named but will be operated by the Community Through Beer group, which also operates the Patriarch in Edmond. Design is by AHMM Architects.

    General Manager Brad Mullenix told OKCTalk that they had been looking in the area but when they found this particular opportunity to be right on the park, it was too good to let pass by.

    Mullenix said craft beer will be strongly featured with more than 50% of the choices coming from local Oklahoma brewers. There will also be 3 kitchens which will be overseen by local chef Jonathon Stranger with the focus on quality and friendly, shareable food. In addition to the extensive beer offerings, there will be a good selection of wine and cocktails.

    The hope is to be open next summer and certainly no later than when Scissortail Park opens for business.

    The dilapidated structure is at 5th and S. Hudson along the west side of the park and a complete renovation and second level addition will offer commanding views of the park itself along with the skyline and ultimately the new Omni Hotel and convention center coming soon to the east side of the new public space.

    The rooftop terrace will be shaded by a canopy and includes a mirrored soffit to reflect the rooftop scene while offering great views of the park and beyond.

    Scissotail Park is set for completion next year and the convention center and Omni will start construction this summer. The new boulevard is already well under construction and the streetcar tracks are already laid in advance of the entire transit system starting service in late 2018.
