Oklahoma City, OK Effective September 17, 2018 Urban Johnnie, located at 121 NE 2nd St in Deep Deuce will close permanently.

It has been our pleasure to serve the people of Deep Deuce and Downtown Oklahoma City. We will forever be grateful for our time here,” Co-Owner Rick Haynes said. “We would like to thank all of our past patrons, especially those who made Urban Johnnie their neighborhood sports bar. Look for a new and exciting concept at this location in the future.

Employees will have the opportunity to transfer their employment to one of the other restaurants in the Johnnies Charcoal Broiler family. Haynes said he does not want his employees to feel stranded without employment.

The decision to close Urban Johnnie comes at a time when the restaurant group’s flagship brand, Johnnie’s Charcoal Broiler, is experiencing significant growth. Plans to expand into Midwest City are slated for Fall of 2018 and the tenth Johnnie’s location on Northwest Expressway will reopen in the Spring of 2019.
