As the new 17-story, 605-room Oklahoma City Convention Center headquarter hotel, Omni OKC, prepares to open its doors Tuesday, local residents may find their palates piqued by some of the recently announced food and beverage options that will be available, from an espresso bar to an award-winning steakhouse.

Four new food and beverage outlets are set to debut Jan. 26, with three more to open later. Several outlets line Robinson Avenue across from Scissortail Park, and will feature outdoor patio dining options and streetside entrances. The Basin Bar, OKC Tap House, Bob’s Steak & Chop House, and Park Grounds espresso bar will open Tuesday. Accomplished corporate chef and restaurateur David Gilbert has been tapped to serve as Omni OKC’s executive chef.

“Omni Oklahoma City Hotel will offer enticing options with a variety of dining experiences for any occasion,” Gilbert said. “Whether you are looking to sip on a local beer while watching the Oklahoma City Thunder, experience elevated dining with an aged steak or simply grab a latte for a ride on the streetcar or while visiting Scissortail Park, Omni provides a unique food and beverage destination for those traveling to Oklahoma City, enjoying a staycation, spending time downtown or seeking memorable dining experience for a night out in the city. We look forward to welcoming locals and guests to Omni Oklahoma City Hotel.”

The Basin Bar is located in the Omni lobby will feature crafted cocktails and local craft beer in an inviting space that showcases design details inspired by the state of Oklahoma, also carried throughout the hotel, notably the chevron pattern indicative of the Scissortail Flycatcher, the state bird. Basin Bar will also offer regionally inspired items including jamon iberico and manchego cheese.
