It's a great location and the developers have tried to tie it into black wall street's resurgence, so maybe they marketed to black entrepreneurs.

I'm looking forward to it. We have some great restaurants downtown, but there's space for more, especially in this corner. Soul food will be a big hit as long as it's not too pricey.

Greenwood's historical boundary goes all the way to Detroit from where I-244 is to Archer, at Archer it actually goes over one more block to Cincinnati (so both the BOK parking lots are actually Greenwood). Just through the years city leadership, etc. have slowly chipped away and moved the Arts District further and further east. That's why there was so much uproar too when Tate Brady's past was made more public. Many in the Black community already knew that - but you have someone who was actively in the KKK, etc. and people were slowly trying to erase the Greenwood district's historic boundaries with the 'Brady District'  



The original marketing of the HQ location and why they built the archway was to serve as a connection from Greenwood to the Arts District. So not surprised by the location of this restaurant either and hoping to see more like this. We need more food diversity in Tulsa. We have enough pizza and burger places lol.

Interesting! I wasn't thinking in relation to the Greenwood area, just that superficially a leapfrog expansion from Sacramento to Tulsa was unusual but it makes sense now. I agree Tulsa needs some serious food diversity, so this is a very welcome addition.

A higher end sushi place (something like Uchi in Austin/Dallas) is really needed.  I like In The Raw and Sushi Hana but itís not on the same level.

I think a Soul Food / Sushi fusion restaurant that serves Margaritas would be groundbreaking.

You need a place like Chino Bandido.

Restaurants opening in the next few months downtown:
-Noche, taco bar in the Vast building
-Fixins, Southern/soul food in 110 N Detroit (WPX)
-Cabin Boys, brewpub in the old Prairie space on Main
-Islaís Kitchen, Southern/Cajun in the corner space at The View

I know they are working on something in the old Laffa space on Main but not sure what it will be.

What happened to that golf simulator place that was supposed to open in the Vast building? On the same note, what happened to the new apartments/lofts project in the building north of Vault? Can't remember the name of it.

Not sure about the golf place, but the apartments north of the vault are being worked on. They seemingly are working on some sort of utility pipeline.. there's been a huge pile of dirt created.

The golf simulator bar is called Super Fly Lounge and is being operated by the same owner as Noche, and will open around the same time in next couple months. 

The apartments north of The Vault are the ARCO Lofts and are under construction.  They are turning the ARCO Building into 80 apartments with underground parking.  The construction you see at 5th & Cincinnati is the new ramp into the basement.

Super Fly seems to be more a members only place for golf practice, but anyone can drop in for a $65.00/hr fee.

Ahh, that makes sense. I was wondering what the mess was from. Nice that they aren't building above ground parking.

Anyone know what is going in the ground floor retail space below The Brook at 2nd & Cincinnati?  There is work going on inside.

Interesting plan here: https://tulsaworld.com/entertainment/dining/alley-cat-ranch-is-start-of-largest-multipurpose-adult-playground-in-the-state/article_d99691ba-babc-11ed-98fa-1b44a683f31c.html#tracking-source=home-top-story

This is that old gas station on 2nd north/northeast of The Edge apartments. Tulsa needs more outdoor spaces like this - access in and out of that area is not great though.

For people who can't access the article, it's basically going to be a large outdoor food truck park plus pickle ball courts, ferris wheel, bar areas, and dining areas, etc.
