Nhu Avenue is a women's contemporary apparel store that offers quality classic style at an affordable price. I have had over 15 years of retail experience including areas of sales manager, styling specialist, and buyer. After getting married, I moved to Oklahoma City and opened Nhu Avenue. I knew Oklahoma was still a growing city and there was a great opportunity for new retailers and especially in the realm of good and sustainable apparel. Midtown was a growing area when I decided to open and I am so thankful to be a part of a community that continues to grow along side us.

The great thing about being in Midtown is the convenient shopping I get from my neighbors. One of my favorite shops is Barkeep. I have picked up a selection of gifts from them such as their glassware and most recently their custom holiday gift boxes. Julia and Brenna are the dynamic duo and they make Barkeep such an inviting and unique space.

My favorite place to eat downtown is Kitchen 324. They have the best mix of brunch and lunch. In my opinion, the best thing on the menu is their fried chicken pot pie. My brunch favorites are the chai tea latte and the fried green tomato benedict.

My idea of “play” is a truly relaxing afternoon. For that, my go-to is usually Udånder for a steam and sauna session or a relaxing facial or massage. I love the clean, modern, and tranquil space they provide for pure relaxation.
