Just got this press release from the Prohibition Room at the Gold Dome. I can’t say I’m totally surprised. The restaurant seems to be doing well at night and on weekends, but the lunch hour has been dismal. This is not a reflection on the food quality or service. From my own visits and observations from others, some would say the problem is with the menu: too expensive for lunch, and too long of a wait. Hopefully the overhaul will include a menu that caters to the downtown/uptown lunch crowd. The restaurant is a nice addition to the Gold Dome at NW 23 and Classen, and it would be shame if it failed.
Prohibition Room Restaurant/Lounge to Close for Lunch for 2 Weeks to Reorganize and Open Under New Kitchen Management.
Effective Monday December 1st the Prohibition Room Restaurant/Lounge located at 1112 NW 23rd St in the Historic Gold Dome in
North Oklahoma City will close for lunch for 2 weeks for reorganization and new kitchen management. The lunches will re-open again December 15th.
Prohibition Room will be open for business at 4pm until 2am everyday during this process serving dinner service nightly. Prohibition Room will be open Saturday’s and Sunday’s during normal business hours.
This decision is to improve the lunch service providing higher quality and faster service during the lunch period. Prohibition Room has been open for six months providing a relaxing atmosphere for patrons to have dinner and drinks. The small independent restaurant group made this decision to try to fix problems with kitchen issues and succeed in helping the 23rd street area continue the redevelopment process that began years ago.
Co-owner Joe Rosati was quoted “this is an unfortunate turn of events but necessary to the survival of the restaurant in the future and to re-focus on the guest and their needs”
