  • Drunken Fry relocating from Classen Circle

    As the new owners of Classen Circle ready for renovations to the historic Donnay Building, long-time tenant Drunken Fry closed its doors on Friday night will plans to soon reopen at a new location.

    Rod Meyer of the Deep Fork Restaurant Group is partnering with Shyon Keoppel for the new spot, to be located in the former Beauty's Cafe building at 1244 N. Western.

    Keoppel owns the building, Meyer is the proprietor of the previous Drunken Fry and added to the mix, Zack Moore and Claire Hampton will operate across from their current hit propect, Good Times.

    Moore, Hampton and Keoppel are all partners in Good Times at 1234 N. Western and the restaurant and bar has already found a loyal following with the large patio often packed in the evenings. Good Times took over from the former Fat Dog Kitchen and Bar.

    The new location will feature a 1,865 square foot building that dates back to 1910 and has long been vacant and dilapidated. Keoppel bought it in 2016 and originally proposed El Jefe, a taco concept before forcusing on Kong's Tavern and the Greystone Lounge in Bricktown.

    The new Drunken Fry will keep the same menu, a long list of fries served with inventive dips and sauces, such as garlic aioli, chipotle BBQ and Dr. Pepper syrup ketchup. They will still offer a large variety of beers and update their cocktail menu.

    Perhaps the biggest change will be the move to a non-smoking establishment.

    The L-shaped building will feature a long bar, booths and a spot for occasional DJ's.

    Initial work has already commenced with the hope patrons will flow freely between the new Drunken Fry and Good Times.
