Top Ten New Local Businesses in OKC

Coming Soon:

Bunker Club

The great people behind the Pump Bar in Uptown 23rd are already giving us another bar to fall in love with. The nostalgic 80’s born millennial will love this cold war themed bar. Set to open any time now, we will have to do more research and let you know all about it.

Ur/Bun Eats

If you love the food at Chae, you will probably enjoy a delicious Korean style bun from UrBun Eats. They will be located next door to the Bunker Club. Which will make a great combination!

Just Opened:

Esca Vitae

A new bakery concept for the Midtown OKC district, Esca Vitae will be located in the same spot Prairie Thunder use to have their bakery. Their soft open was Monday and it will likely become a favorite of the locals.

Rewind Retro Pub

Located in the Farmers Market District, Rewind is a pub with a food menu and plenty of old school arcade games. They are just opened last week and reviews have been pretty good so far. Take the whole family for a night of games and delicious food.

 


 

Top Ten:

10. The Laboratory

One word: Sneakers. The Laboratory is not the first speciality shoe store in the urban core of OKC, but it is the first to focus on athletic sneakers as a fashion statement. This small shop is located in the heart of OKC Midtown District and has a new neighbor in Insomniac Cookies. What could be better?

9. Bone Dog Boutique

Deep Deuce now has a great place to pamper that furry friend of yours. Located at street level inside the Aloft Hotel, it is walking distance for anyone that lives in the apartments near by. It is conveniently next to the Deep Deuce dog park. They offer washing bays, toys, many types of food and an assortment of treats safe for your best friend with four legs.

8. Yuzo Sushi Tapas

The newest kid on the Automobile Alley block is impressing just about everyone who sits down to their food experience. The saying, “You get what you pay for!” is a great way to describe Yuzo. It may have a higher priced menu, but it makes up for that with the taste and presentation. If you are a sushi fanatic this is should be your new favorite dining location. Try the Elotes, all I have to say is, you’re welcome!

7. Wheeze the Juice

A child of the 90’s will more than likely get a good laugh out of this clever name. All kidding aside, Wheeze the Juice is not just another juice bar. They bring new flavors to life that you weren’t expecting. If you are not the juicing type, they also offer smoothies. We really love the Camp Anawana smoothie. It fills your stomach while also being filled with flavor. Located in the OKSEE storage containers in Deep Deuce.

6. The Yoga Box

Yes, there are many great places around OKC that can give you the best Yoga experience. However, there is only one that offers up meal plans as well. The Yoga Box not only heals your mind and muscles, it cures your stomach of bland processed foods. Located inside of the 50 Penn Place building it also gives you a great opportunity to rest after a long session at Full Circle Bookstore.

5. Pritchard Wine Bar

A year or so ago there was a void in the Plaza District. A wine bar had closed and there were many looking for their new place to relax with a glass a wine. Pritchard Wine Bar has come to the rescue. Lovely staff and warm interiors make this a wonderful place to bring your closest friends and indulge in a great wine list.

A space with collaborators from JL Woodworkx, The Okay See and Brad Snider Photography. This is the retail location for those who love local craftsmanship and clever t-shirt designs. With the Silo opening in the Farmers Market District, you can now spend all day spending your local dollars in one location.

3. En Croute

En Croûte is a restaurant, bar and fromagerie opening in 2016 in Nichols Hills Plaza. It is meant to evoke the comfort and leisurely lifestyle the team has enjoyed in the fromageries, cafes, and bars in European country villages, but with an American twist. It is the place to try something new and they will take you on a taste adventure.

2. Loaded Bowl

Started from the food truck craze and has now added a brick and mortar location in the Farmer’s Market District. Great tasting food you almost forget is vegan. Sure, the menu says chicken, bacon and cheese, however their menu is vegan. Fresh flavors are at an abundance here and you will soon find your favorite vegan entree.

1. Common Place Books

Before they have even finished their actual location, Common Place Books opened up in the OKC Midtown District with a ton of fanfare. With all the new technology we have in the world there is still something very satisfying about reading a book with paper and a cover. This is an intimate place to bring the family, especially the kids considering their new program called Books and Kids and Art and Stuff.
