Bar-K Is a Great TIF Project Ready To Open

BarK building

By Emily Blaylock
President & Founder, Untamed Equity

I just got back from visiting Oklahoma City (barely missing the ice storm) and seeing the new Bar K restaurant and indoor/outdoor dog park completed and ready to open!  This concept that Leib and Dave have created for dogs and humans to enjoy is amazing!  Who doesn’t love the combination of dogs, drinks, food, music, and fun?  I was honored to be part of the TIF loan in this project during my time at Northwest Bank.  It was projects like this that helped me launch Untamed Equity and keep the momentum going of driving economic development with unique, fun, and innovative projects. 

If you want to check out the place for yourself the grand opening is February 8th in the Boathouse District of Oklahoma City.
