Article on Rock City Eats mentions all three Ohia Poke locations including the one at Promenade have closed. I have never seen the other two but as for the one out at Promenade I can honestly say I am not surprised. I do not think I have ever seen anyone in the place eating nor do I know of anyone who has ever been in there.  The various times I have walked past it, the open sign was turned on but no one was inside or even at the counter so. I am sure the lease on this location was crazy as it was, cannot imagine how much money they lost with no real customer traffic coming in.

I’m not even sure what a Poke restaurant is!

I wish Bank OZK had been interested in this being a transformative project for Central Arkansas, and considered building a tower downtown...similar to the Devon Energy project, though perhaps not on t

The development group has had it available for 3 years, and there has not been anyone come along with interest to do anything.  There was a "plan" that was more like a vision for what to be there, but

I realize this is anecdotal, but I’ll have to say, the center is always pretty busy...frankly it seems busier than it has in the past. However, it will forever (practically) have to overcome its relative isolation. Heck, maybe that was part of its original intent, as a high-end center serving its high-end demographic exclusively.

Don’t think it’s been mentioned, but the Promenade’s website lists a restaurant called Pies and Pints as coming soon. Not 100% sure where in the center it will be but I imagine it’ll be the old Tavern space. Looks nice. The Tavern was a great spot for casual drinks in WLR that didn’t close too early so hopefully it fills that void.

Looks neat, I can see something like that working where the old Tavern was for sure, granted US Pizza is right across the street from it now.  I noticed on The Promenade website it listed "17815 Chenal Parkway, STE F 101 Little Rock, AR 72223" as the address for it. Building F houses Tavern and several other empty suites... but seeing as this looks like a sports bar it would make the most sense to take the old Tavern location seeing as that would have a kitchen, bar and restaurant space already established unlike the other suites.

Confirmed stories today of upper market retailer Lush locating to the Promenade.  This is good news for a center that is on a bit of life support.  However, I will disclose that the entire Chenal area is about to get very interesting with a bit of awesome news coming down the horizon over the next few months.  Although I'm uncertain of how this will fill the no less than four strips currently under construction along the westbound (home) side of Chenal.  There's some developers with some big balls betting huge on Chenal.  Only time will tell.  Lastly, I will say that if you're in the market to buy a home in the $350,000+ range and you don't buy one in Chenal or in WLR from Bowman on west you're just flat out making a bad mistake.

The area has potential to explode in time if some things develop correctly soon, as right now there is a just a ton of empty retail space or empty lots where proposed retail / office is going eventually. Hopefully Moses Tucker handling the stuff with Promenade will help this center out.

Excited to see what’s planned! Regarding Lush, I’m not familiar with them - sounds like a big catch for LR?

There’s a new neighborhood being developed across Kanis from Chenal Downs. It’s been cleared and they’re doing the dirt work now. I’d bet the houses will be in the $350k+ range.

Bump. Wondering what the bit of awesome news is.

Agreed. I think  this is surprising...always seemed quite busy.  I suspect though that Little Rock is not the only city dealing with closures (permanent) due to the pandemic.

Yeah can’t go there yet.  Might be a few weeks.  But it’s definitely big news. Sorry for the suspense. 

Can you give all of us some relief from the hectic life and give a hint at what it is? It’s been a few weeks now.

I wonder if this is part of it or it in general: https://katv.com/news/local/amazon-buys-80-acre-site-in-little-rock 

Otherwise if its related to something else, who knows if its still happening on time or at all due to the COVID-19 stuff going on.

No, because he inferred it would be a development in west Little Rock.
