James E. McNellie’s Public House, closed for renovations since Sept. 9, will reopen this week in time for its popular Burger Night.

The kitchen is twice the size of its original 600 square feet, and new draft lines for beers have been installed from the keg room to the taps.

Some of the changes include a snug in the side dining room, foot rails around all of the bars, new bench seating next to the fireplace in the side room and a new no-smoking policy in the large upstairs dining room.  A snug is a small, enclosed private dining area served by a dedicated pass-through to the bar. The snug, which holds up to eight diners, also is a feature at McNellie’s South City, 7031 S. Zurich Ave.

Get a first look at the changes to this iconic Tulsa location before it reopens this week.
