Velvet Monkey Salon, long the edgy salon staple in OKC, has moved the original NW 23rd Street store to the Plaza District, 1701 NW 16th. The new space opened May 23, and it's time for a big old party to celebrate.
The grand opening celebration will be held June 12 at the Plaza District space from 7-10 p.m. This is a great chance to check out the new digs, an urban, industrial space that has had an 80s-inspired overhaul, with graffiti on the walls and old school arcade games to waste some time. The grand opening will also include an art exhibition by Olivia Frisbie, from L.A.
After 10 p.m., the party moves to Bricktown. Bolero Tapas Bar & Spanish Grill, 200 S. Oklahoma, hosts the party from 10:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.
There will be a fashion show featuring the vintage collection from Velvet Monkey's boutique, music from Bryan Dunning and the Rock & Roll Trio Band, a little burlesque dancing from Pseudo Dance, and appearances by the Red Dirt Rebellion roller derby girls, a bike gang and even a car club.
