A unique dog- and human-friendly business that is part dog park, part bar and restaurant is coming to Oklahoma City.
Bar K is set to open a new location in Oklahoma City’s Boathouse District on the banks of the Oklahoma River. Pending approval by the City Council and other local authorities, construction of the new 2-acre facility is expected to begin shortly, and it is slated to open by late 2020 or early 2021, according to the company.
The business offers a healthy casual menu of food, gourmet coffee, juices and smoothies and a variety of locally brewed beers and craft cocktails, officials with the company said. Surrounding the bar and restaurant is a fully staffed, 2-acre, off-leash dog park with play structures and seating areas.
Bar K offers its dog-friendly services on a daily-fee basis or as part of an annual membership. Humans without dogs are always welcome to visit for free, according to the company.
The new facility will operate seven days a week and feature indoor and outdoor dog parks, a full-service restaurant and bar, as well as private event spaces. Bar K’s staff of “dogtenders” keep a watchful eye on canine guests to ensure a safe and joyful experience. Their humans can hang out with the pups in the park or explore Bar K’s people-focused amenities.
