The original downtown location for Joe Momma’s Pizza finally has a new tenant.
Marcus Cloud, a veteran of Tulsa’s bar scene, will open Ripley’s Bar & Grill at 112 S. Elgin Ave.
“We hope to be open some time in the fall,” Cloud said Friday. “We will have some simple food, like wings, and plenty of televisions.”
Founder Blake Ewing moved Joe Momma’s from south Tulsa to the downtown spot in 2012. The building was destroyed by fire in July 2015 and has been vacant since.
Joe Momma’s resurfaced at 303 E. First St. and lasted about a year before closing in December 2018. That space still is for lease, according to a sign in the window.
