OKCTalk has done a great job gathering information for what is up and coming in The Paseo District. We had to share!
The Paseo is one of Oklahoma City's first urban districts, blending arts and culture and eclectic businesses and surrounded by an interesting mix of housing of all types.
After decades of watching other districts like The Plaza and Midtown and neighoring Uptown get all the attention with lots of new restaurants, bars and retail, The Paseo is now in the middle of a new wave of expansion and redevelopment that is bringing new life and interest to the area, along with growing crowds.
One of the district's anchors and biggest draws, the well-loved Picasso Cafe, continues it's popular run after a modest but impactful renovation. Even more attention was paid to the adjoining bar, The Other Room, which has seen a thorough remodeling complete with new booths and a freshening that retained the nieghborhood bar charm while making welcome improvements inlcuding cozy new booths. One of the biggest changes is that the bar is now non-smoking apart from the expansive back patio.
Proprietor Shaun Fiaccone and his Humankind Hospitality group also has three new projects underway in the district. The ambitious Frida is now well under construction at the key corner of NW 28th and Walker, already starting to fill a vacant lot at the district's south entrance. Frida will feature southwestern cuisine, a large patio and The Daley will be separate craft cocktail bar with its own identity.
This week, work started on OSO, Humankind's venture at the Pueblo at Paseo, an elevated taqueria with a creative cocktail menu and a design by AHMM architects that will create a large outdoor space covered by a modern trellis.
OSO will join the already popular Scratch and Buttermilk Southern Sliders, each with their own patios at the Pueblo complex and each already cultivating a loyal following.
We are so excited for all things happening around The Paseo!
