About Us

The Oakley Kitchen + CocktailsNutley resident Khristopher Reina purchased the historic Park Pub in 2018, and with the help of local designers and contractors he transformed the 6,500 square foot, 2-story restaurant into “The Oakley – Kitchen & Cocktails“, an elegant yet comfortable gastropub, which opened for business in May 2019. The gastropub is named after the famous feminine sharpshooter Annie Oakley, a Nutley resident in the late 1800’s (when she wasn’t traveling with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show). Khris wanted to bring excellent food, drinks, atmosphere and music to Nutley.
