Stop 1:


For over 40 years, ADG has provided design and program management services throughout Oklahoma, creating successful projects for education, corporate, healthcare, housing, church and government clients. Iconic projects include the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, the new Oklahoma City Police Headquarters and St. Anthony's eastward expansion, including its twin beacons and Saints Medical Plaza. With 70 employees, ADG consistently ranks as one of the largest design and program management rms in Oklahoma. The growing firm of architects, engineers, program managers, interior designers and urban planners moved from Bricktown to the Fred Jones Manufacturing Building in January and is thrilled to show off their new digs. They have teamed with a new eatery that opened in March as a shining star in Oklahoma City foodie circles, Chae Modern Korean. Daniel Chae, along with chef Taylor Desjarlais, his wife, Hunter Desjarlais, the restaurant's general manager, and sous chef Sam Salinas collaborate on a menu that is simultaneously elegant, hearty and spicy. The menu centers on Korean street food-egg rolls, bulgogi tacos, steamed buns, home-made kimchi and pickles-but makes room for creative variations on classic Korean dishes such as Bibimap and Galbi. Chae was voted best new restaurant by 405 Magazine and is a finalist for best new restaurant at bestofoklahomacity.com. Korean food and beer together, what a natural palette pleaser! Stonecloud Brewing Company, Oklahoma’s newest craft brewery that will be opening in the Sunshine Laundry building at NW First and Classen will confirm the pairing. Founder Joel Irby is an Oklahoma native who has been brewing professionally in Colorado for the last nine years. Stonecloud will focus on bold American styles with an emphasis on barrel-aged and sour beers. They will have a tap room onsite at the brewery and are targeting the first part of 2017 as an opening date.

Stop 2:


TAP is located in its own premises in Oklahoma's Central Business District. TAP's international HQ at 415 N BROADWAY is a 1930 2 stories storefront and former home to Sherwin Williams, PlayMor Bowling and OTASCO, among others. 415 was acquired, renovated and occupied at the end of the second millennium at a time when Broadway looked a lot different than it does today. The investment in downtown is consistent with TAP's commitment to building environments important to community, regardless of size or budget, and the firm has been recognized for its role in the design and construction of many of the buildings, spaces and places associated with Oklahoma City's renaissance. TAP is teamed with the PUMP Bar which has been voted as the best of class in multiple bar and restaurant categories by local press readers. The PUMP is a patio bar located at a historic Texaco station in the Paseo. It has proved so popular it is spawning many concept copycats but there is only one original where wines, spirits, cocktails, 100 package drinks and 16 craft brews are paired with elevated Okie bar cuisine served up by the most remarkable corps of waitrons in the state. Arrive late on the weekends at your own risk because you will wait in the queue of patrons looking to indulge themselves alfresco at one of OKC's hottest locations. Among the craft offerings at the Pump are 405 Brewing Company’s unique beers. The Norman based 405 Brewing Co. is owned by Jonathan Stapleton and Trae Carson and this new kid on the block is making waves with their "one of a kind" contributions to the crafty local scene. The Pump and 405 will pair comestibles and malted beverages for your sensory pleasure with the creative flair befitting their reputations and your appetite for a distinctly different experience.

Stop 3:


Allford Hall Monaghan Morris was established more than 25 years ago in London. Now with offices in Bristol, UK and the newly renovated PLOW building in OKC, AHMM makes buildings that are enjoyable to use, beautiful to look at and easy to understand. AHMM has received public and media acclaim for their work on education, commercial, residential, arts and master planning projects. AHMM has teamed with local restaurant, Ludivine. Ludivine was started by Chefs Jonathan Stanger and Russ Johnson with the intentions of having a menu that would change daily to reflect what is available from nearby farms and ranches. Jonathan and Russ were nominated by Food & Wine magazine as 2012 People’s Best Chef. They were also both named Best Chef by Best Chefs America. During your visit to AHMM you will also meet Elk Valley Brewing Co. and owner John Elkins. Quitting his job as an airplane mechanic, John began to pursue his passion of beer. This Midwest City based brewing company is currently brewing their beer as a CO-OP with Mustang Brewing Co. and was named Oklahoma’s Top New Brewer at the RateBeer Best Awards.

Stop 4:


Fitzsimmons Architects was founded by Brian Fitzsimmons, AIA, in 2005 in Oklahoma City. Our firm's goal is to create beautiful structures that function well for the users and the environment by finding the balance between practicality and creativity. Our work across several disciplines has been recognized locally, regionally, nationally and abroad. Fitzsimmons Architects has teamed with Broadway 10 Bar and Chophouse, founded by local restauranteurs Aaron Soward and Jeff Dixon in 2014. Located in the historic Buick building at the heart of Automobile Alley, Broadway 10 is a refined, unaffected approach to the urban chophouse. From their wood-fired meats to their handcrafted cocktails, every meal prepared by Chef de Cuisine John Patterson is a truly unique experience. Fitzsimmons Architects' beer partner is another Automobile Alley neighbor, Twisted Spike Brewery. Brewmaster Bruce Sanchez has been brewing beer since 1992. Over the past 24 years, he has developed many local and national award winning beers. In 2014, Bruce was a technical contributor to the University of Oklahoma's The Chemistry of Beer course. Twisted Spike's taproom will be located one block east of Broadway 10 on NW 10th Street.
