I think you'll find a large portion of Oklahoma thinks alcohol is devil juice.  So no.

Or, a large portion tell their church friends it's devil juice, then vote yes on State Question 792

I'd guess a store selling nothing but a particular kind of bracelets would be a fail.  Or a designer home goods store in a small town in rural Oklahoma.  Or a bicycle themed bar in a dead part of a dying downtown.  Or any number of ventures that I don't realize how big the potential market is or have the knowledge or drive to make it work.

Then again, one turned into a sizable brand name, one draws headlines with how busy they are, and one is an absolute legend in its target market.

Maybe a unicorn bar will fail.  But my guess is the people who have worked in the nightclub business and are putting their own money in have a better grasp at the chances than we do.  It doesn't sound like we are the target market here...

I also (as strange as the concept seems to me...) wish them well.  But your comparison of Pioneer Woman and Rustic Cuff doesn't work.  Both of those physical locations are primarily successful based on their National exposure from other sources. The unicorn bar won't have that.   Soundpony is a closer comparison, but still it's not exactly the same.   Soundpony is a standard dive bar with a cycling theme.  Even non-riders aren't uncomfortable in Soundpony.   I do suspect that there will be a significant portion of the populace that won't be as comfortable with a shiny unicorn bar. 

But if there are enough comfortable people to keep them in business, then rock on.  Diversity is cool.

I donít know if itíll succeed or fail, but something other than another brew pub/sports bar theme seems like a good idea.  Also, in my observation, if ladies show up at this place, guys will follow.

Somebody told me they don't want guys in there.  If you read their model their goal is girl time with no guys.  You can't really choose who shows up to your place. But if you purposefully give bad service to people it will work itself out.

Thatís fine too, if thatís what they want.  However, economics usually wins out over ideology.

Cutting out 49% of possible clientele seems like poor planning.

Or....(and I understand the joke)

Take two.  Declare one of them as the designated driver and enjoy your beer without having to share.

The glittery unicorn bar might fail.  It might be a great success.  

I was inside Electric Circus only once, for a few seconds.  It seemed a bit depressing and boring to me, but that's just my perspective.

The idea of a unicorn bar seems ridiculously stupid, but again, that's only my perspective.  The whole concept sounds worthless and inane to me.
