Barbershop will be part of renovated Braniff Building in Oklahoma City

A “New York style” barbershop will begin operating alongside Kitchen No. 324 on the ground floor when Oklahoma City's Braniff Building reopens this winter.

The 75,584-square-foot building was designed by architect Andrew Solomon Layton. It was built in 1923 by Thomas Braniff for his insurance agency and was later home to the airline he founded, Braniff Airways, until he moved operations to Dallas in the early 1940s. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.

The barbershop is set to open in January, and the restaurant will open in December. SandRidge employees will begin moving into the building's upper floors by next summer.

SandRidge previously said the remainder of the Braniff Building's first floor would be occupied by Kitchen No. 324, a bakery and restaurant to be operated seven days a week by Good Egg Dining Group. Rush said she also plans to be open Saturdays.

“We have a lot of clients that do business with SandRidge and other clients downtown on weekends who are staying in hotels and need services downtown,” Rush said. “It's a beautiful decor, it's very updated, and it should bring me a lot of ground-level clients I've not been exposed to before.”
