Another sign of Oklahoma City “Urban Renewal” was on display Friday night in Midtown. 

The Union at Sosa has officially opened its doors. It’s located four blocks south of St. Anthony’s Hospital at 616 Northwest 5th Street. The building dates back to the 1950’s, when it was a Union Hall. The basement has a secret party room, that back in the day was a secret speakeasy where people would meet to drink alcohol.

“It took eight doors to get to that room,” said Union at Sosa Partner Daniel Stockton. “And so what we did, we’re working smarter not harder, we just disguised the door as best as we could.”

Stockton said opening on 5th Street in Midtown is ideal partly because of the hundreds of apartments that have opened nearby in the past two years.

Stockton and his partners converted an old 1973 Jet Stream trailer into a kitchen, where they will serve several variations of grilled cheese sandwiches.
