The Bricktown warehouse district has become a popular entertainment and restaurant destination in downtown Oklahoma City. Nonna’s Ristorante along with the Painted Door opened a restaurant and retail boutique on the main strip in Bricktown.
The facility’s existing 6,000-square-foot first floor was extended by almost 3,000 square feet to house a gift shop, a street-side cafe, a patisserie, the kitchen, the main dining rooms, a chef’s room and a private dining room.
Balcony seating and a two-story entertainment suite were added to the circa 1930s brick building. High-quality finishes in the 22,000-square-foot structure include porcelain tile and stained concrete and expose the existing building’s brick walls. State-of-the-art lighting and wood flooring run throughout.
The second floor houses the bar and live entertainment area with additional dining, a large dining balcony and private banquet rooms. The entertainment suite has access to an adjoining private third-level lounge and dining area, which also includes a bar and two balconies with seating for 50.
Art fills the space, from the locally hand-blown chandeliers in the entertainment suite to art for sale in the second-floor gallery, to the color-changing glass pendant lights that decorate Purple Bar upstairs. Faux paint finishes in the banquet rooms showcase the owner’s love for detail and interior materials.
