 Oklahoma City's first food hall has officially opened its doors to a few customers.

The Collective held the first soft opening July 25.
 
The new space features over ten kitchens, bar and patio areas and rooftop seating. 
 
News 9 got a peek inside on their family and friends soft opening. 
 
Kitchens like Black Cat said they get a real benefit from being a part of the food hall. 
 
Black Cat is a gluten free healthy option at the new space. Their manager Beth Lyon said they’ve been operating out of a food truck, but now this brick and mortar surrounds her with options for a group of people. 
 
“We are helped out here,” said Lyon. “We are a collaboration. We are a collective.”
 
She said their first soft opening served as a way to work out the “kinks”. 
 
The food hall will have several more private soft openings. On Monday, July 29, they will start their public soft openings.
 
Developers said a grand opening announcement should come soon.
