Theopolis Social Club

From a desire to create something new, Theopolis Social Club doesn’t require a membership to gather with friends. Cami Engles, Leanne Wright, and Rich Sauve talk about this brasserie-style destination in Shawnee where wine, cocktails, food, and culture collide in a modern, eclectic space.

This is the second of three stories I made about Shawnee that I shot a few weeks ago. This video features a brand new lower-third, title card, and end credits. I originally made the lower-third for a sponsored video, but I liked it so much I decided to make it my new graphic going forward.

Visit Theopolis at 419 East Main Street in Shawnee or their website at www.TheopolisSC.com. Interested in a deep dive of Theopolis’ origin story and want to help support Uncovering Oklahoma? Become a patron and watch the full 30-minute interview session.
