This bar was bought from Architectural Antiques and it reportedly was removed from a downtown hotel before it was razed in the 1970s.
A mystery and more. Work is rapidly finishing up inside the future Sage Cafe and Market in Deep Deuce. The owners, Kevin and Charifa Smith, are hoping to open in the next few weeks. They have a mystery on their hands – one maybe someone out there can help solve. The bar shown in the photo above was bought by Architectural Antiques, which apparenlty obtained it at an estate sale. The story relayed is that it was torn out of a downtown Oklahoma City hotel before it was razed, likely during the 1970s Urban Renewal era.
But which one?
A closer look: the only identifying marks on the bar is this old ad for Camel cigarettes.
Here are more glimpses of Sage’s market and kitchen:
The Sage kitchen will be visible to both people shopping in the adjoining market and to passersby outside.
The Sage organic market will include vintage-style and antique display cases offering fruits, vegetables and other organic offerings.
