OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ York Icehouse is the most recent addition to the Ford Center's expanding food and beverage options.

The full-service sports bar, grill and dance hall is set to open by November Tenth.

Named for its sponsor -- York International -- the 10,000-square-foot space was initially designed to house team offices for the Blazers.

But team officials opted not to build in the space because they wanted it available for use by fans.

On each event night, the Icehouse will feature six, 32-inch flat-screen televisions and a 20-foot projection screen with a feed of the evening's event.

On Blazer game nights, only season ticket holders are allowed in the Icehouse. On concert nights, only those with tickets are allowed inside.

Construction on the $250,000 restaurant and bar started in late August.
