Guthrie Green Continues to Groove

Posted: Updated:

The name of the place is synonymous with cool, but it wasn't that long ago, that Guthrie Green didn't exist.

"I think it was a parking lot, right? or some old warehouse," said Joe Robertson.

"I mean, there's no way you can look at this compared to just 4 or 5 years ago even," said Eugene Harris.

"I was living downtown when it was a ghost town," said Zac Davis.

But now, it's a place where Joe Robertson rattles off adjectives of approval by the boatload.

"Peaceful, beautiful, niece friendly, exciting, laid back," he said.

It's a place where Natalie Wallace has turned her talent for hula hooping into a trend.

"Last summer it was funny cause I was like the girl with the hula hoops, like, and now this summer everybody wants one. True story," smiled Wallace.

That's right, she designs and sells them.

"This is your business. Yes. I don't have cards yet, I'm actually ordering them this week," she said.

It's where Eugene Harris indulges his love of music.

"I played alto saxophone," he said.

Tulsa has a strong music history, and Eugene has a slice of that.

"I played for a junior high school band called the Fascinating Souls, we played for a while with the Gap Band, believe it or not," he said.

And believe it or not, Guthrie Green is even hip to canines.

"We're actually kind of bummed we forgot to bring our dogs tonight," said Zac Davis, driving home the point that all are welcome at the Double G.

"I mean it's awesome. I mean the dogs are out, the kids are out. Dogs are way easier than kids, so, you know," he laughed.
