On January 12, 2017, West in Bricktown closed permanently.
“The closure of Bricktown West comes after serious and heartfelt consideration. We have loved our time in Bricktown; the people we have served, the memories we have been a part of and the honor of representing Oklahoma City to those that visit and call Oklahoma home,” Co-Owner Rick Haynes said.
“The entire discussion came up as the progression plans for Bricktown and the street car system construction on Sheridan Avenue has crept closer. We are very excited about the future of Oklahoma City, but at this time we have been forced to make a tough business decision.”
Mr. Haynes said “with the inconvenience of tonight’s closing, we will gladly make lateral reservation at one of our sister restaurants; the original West (on Western), Urban Johnnie (located just north of Deep Deuce on 2nd street) or any other local restaurant that fulfills the needs of our loyal customers.”
Employees will have an opportunity to transfer their employment to one of the other properties within the Restaurant Concepts family; West, Urban Johnnie, Johnnie’s or Johnnie’s Express.
“We are thankful for our employees and we don’t want them to feel stranded without any employment”.
Haynes went on to add, “We have lived a dream being a part of Bricktown and in such a historic building. We have loved every minute and look forward to seeing our trusted customers where it all
started, at the original West.”
