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.

Great concept there!
Reminds me of Ferris Wheelers down here in Dallas. Hopefully it does well. Tulsa needs a TON more patio bars/restaurants around town

Especially on the riverfront with Zink Dam finishing up this year.  Looking at you Blue Rose/Sand Bar

Absolutely. I was in town last weekend and hung out at the McNellie's downtown on the patio. Great little set up they have there, and wish that more places would do something like that. I REALLY wish some places in south Tulsa would do something like that... Would be super easy and can easily eat up some ugly donkey parking lots

My dream patio would be the gravel lots around the Blue Dome building with a combo bar/coffee shop (like Hodges Bend) inside and big trees planted outside like what they did at McNellies.  The Mont in Norman vibes.

Year's ago they had announced they planned to do something like that but nothing materialized. The Blue Dome building could use some TLC and an outdoor space would do well there, surprised it's never happened.

That entire block-long stretch of Elgin needs TLC.  It would be amazing to see the Blue Dome reused and the New Midtown Adult Superstore redeveloped.

Yes, most of that block is just parking and dead space. The opposite corner of 2nd and detroit is begging for something. Especially once the TAC project gets going...

The adult superstore will be hard to get rid of because there's nowhere else for them to go. They are a relic of the past when DT was a ghost town, but now it's so hard to find a place where a business like that could get a SUP. People from miles around would come to protest if it moved anywhere near them. In the old days they may have been able to slip into a more derelict area without many noticing, but now it's more obvious when things are plastered all over the internet. Sadly I think it's here to stay for the foreseeable future and it will scare off some development around the block. Shady Keys did finally make the move into their new digs on 3rd almost across from it though, so maybe that will bring some vibrancy to the block..

Needs to go back to being the Veteran's Bar!   Was good place then.  Pool in the dome room.  Dominoes in back.  Red beer for a quarter!
