New Bricktown saloon to offer customers a howling good time

BY STEVE LACKMEYER Published: May 13, 2009
The bar is set to open June 24.

A tour of the bar area Tuesday revealed construction is almost complete. A gift shop area is at the canal entrance, while the saloon’s trademark long bar top is already in place. A second-floor bar area also is in place for busy nights and special bookings.

The entire former digs of J. Frank’s Bar was gutted, and even the bathrooms were rebuilt so they could be handicap accessible.

Killingsworth said the saloon will be open seven days a week, usually from about 5 p.m. until 2 a.m.

Bricktown Association Director Jim Cowan said the piano bar is already a "smashing success” and he looks forward to Coyote Ugly expanding the district’s bar scene beyond dance clubs for 20-somethings.

"It’s always a positive to have a national tenant move into Bricktown,” Cowan said. "And it will help us add to the entertainment mix so that Bricktown has something to do no matter what your age is.”
