Welcome to Reba's Place, may I take your order?
Country icon Reba McEntire is jumping into the hospitality business with a new restaurant, bar, and live music venue, making the news official by launching a new website and social media channels to whet fans' appetites for what's soon to come.
Created in partnership with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and the city of Atoka, OK -- Reba’s Place, which is set to open in late 2022 at 319 East Court St, will be a combination restaurant, bar, live music venue, and retail store, "brought to life" by the Country superstar, as explained on the venue's new Instagram page.
Another post showing the inside design boasts that the venue's main floor, constructed in a century-old Masonic Temple, "showcases a restored antique bar," and will offer a broad range of beer, wine, and spirits, "crafted into signature cocktails."
Reba's new spot is also expected to feature a tantalizing food menu of her own favorites, "scratch made versions of many of the dishes most popular in the region," as well as personal selections from other areas including Nashville, New Orleans, and Mexico. Think: Fancy steak dinners, killer beans and rice, chicken and biscuits... and all the cornbread and gravy you can handle!
Reba welcomed Chief Gary Batton of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma on stage in Durant, OK over the weekend to celebrate the news. "We're really tickled, we're very excited about it. It's gonna have great food, family atmosphere, a bandstand in there where we can do a little pickin' and grinnin' and singin'," McEntire told the crowd.
"I’m very excited to be opening a place so close to my roots," the singer said in a press release. “The Choctaw Nation and the city of Atoka are wonderful partners and I can’t wait to welcome our first guests to Reba’s Place. We are working very hard to create something not only for the local community, but that will also bring in folks from across the country."
Reba also knows just the right ingredients to make the holiday season her very own. Her brand new Christmas in Tune special, with Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider, just premiered on Lifetime TV.
