Spin city

Gazette staff January 11th, 2012

Any number of longtime OKC residents might have fond memories of living it up on the revolving platform restaurant atop Founders Tower.

Once the home to posh joints such as The Eagle’s Nest and Nikz at the Top back when the building was called the United Founders Tower (those idyllic days when we were all united), the location at 5900 Mosteller Drive has been empty since 2007.

But good times might be ahead for that storied 20th floor. The Deep Fork Restaurant Group is working with the building’s Tulsa-based owners to establish a special-events facility and lounge at the top of Founders.

The would-be place will be named The Chandelle Room, in honor of the first restaurant to open there back in 1963.

But don’t book it just yet. Delays have pushed the projected opening to next summer, and possibly later. We at CFN are breathlessly awaiting the return of that revolving 360-degree view and the chance to make ourselves dizzy on gin while trying to spy our car in the parking lot below.
