First Look at First National

Join us to witness art, history, and elegance emerge from the newly renovated First National Center! This iconic landmark in the heart of downtown OKC was brought back to life 90 years after it first opened.

The First National Center is a mix of a 146-room Marriott Autograph Hotel (The National), 193 apartments (The Residences at The First), restaurants, and over 20,000 square feet of retail and meeting rooms. The beautifully restored Great Hall boasts the new Tellers Café with the centerpiece bar. Two event venues are also in the Great Hall with its dramatic, hand-restored 50-foot art deco ceiling.

Also opening are the Library of Distilled Spirits in the former bank vault, Stock and Bond Steakhouse and the much-anticipated Gilded Acorn, led by Chefs Andrew Black and Rudy Khouri.

First National is an outstanding example of a complex economic development project as many incentives were utilized. Partners Gary Brooks and Charlie Nicholas credit the support of numerous City, State and other agencies as being essential for making the purchase and restoration possible for this special project.

Please meet us in the lobby at 4pm; tours will commence right after our opening presentation. Happy hour and networking to follow at Tellers.
