West Restaurant

Right in the middle of Bricktown sits a wonderful stop for a snack, a meal or cocktails on the roof.

West Bricktown, on the corner of Sheridan and Mickey Mantle Drive, has an open contemporary layout with a tip of the hat to its roots with original brick walls accenting both floors.

It’s a sister restaurant to West on Western. West Bricktown features the same contemporary style but with downtown charm.

The change in style from the previous tenant was created by Bockus Payne Associates Architects.

Taylor Starr, director of interior design with Bockus Payne, spoke of what was done to give the restaurant a clean, contemporary look.

“We used a lot of different textures,” Starr said in a telephone interview. “The warm colors in the banquettes, the woods and the copper accents combine to make West Bricktown a welcoming space.”

Both bars are accented with copper panels with granite tops. The first floor bar gives a good look at the wine wall.

“When we started our renovations, the bar had a traditional wine storage with just the corks visible,” Starr said. “The niche was already there, but we enlarged it and then placed the wine bottles so their labels are visible.”

The wine wall is enclosed by glass and makes it much easier for patrons to choose what they’d like.
Director of Marketing Suzanne Bockus described the look the company wanted for West Bricktown.

“We used a refined monochromatic theme,” she said. “We improved the flow of foot traffic throughout the restaurant while making the bar areas cozy.”

The outdoor area on the roof has been updated as well with the addition of a fire pit. It extends the time the roof will be open throughout the year.

The lighting has been updated, adding to the contemporary feel.

“Added light adds definition to the spaces on both floors and includes orb and glass chandeliers along with decorative sconces and pendant lights,” Suzanne Bockus explained.

A local art gallery has supplied art, giving pops of color throughout.

West Bricktown is the latest restaurant to get the Bockus Payne touch. Other restaurants include Charleston’s, City Bites, Pearl’s Oyster Bar, Red Rock Canyon Grill, and Urban Johnnie.
