Restaurants & Nightlife
Ready for a night out? Oklahoma City offers a wide variety of food and nighttime options to please any palette. With fantastic dining and fun available all over the metro, the districts below are just a chance to get started. Come in, have a drink and see where the night takes you!
The fastest-growing entertainment district in the southwest, Bricktown is always abuzz with activity. Enjoy a cocktail on the canal, dance the night away in a trendy club or sit down to a white-tableclothed treat. Catch a ballgame at the award-winning Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark and then take a water taxi ride, grab a little sushi and listen to some live music on a waterside stage to celebrate the win - without ever having to get in the car. Both family-friendly and made for late-night fun, Bricktown truly offers something for everyone in this downtown urban hotspot.
One of the newest areas on the scene, Midtown is truly making a splash as a revitalization effort has taken hold and created multiple success stories. Full of fantastic local restaurants and bars with more on the way, a night out in Midtown is a great introduction to what's new and hip on the OKC scene.
THE PLAZA DISTRICT
For the past 20 years, the Plaza District has seen an incredible revitalization led by dedicated citizens. A street once lined with rundown or abandoned buildings is now one of OKC's most creative areas. Thriving businesses including retail shops, restaurants, bars and more make the Plaza District a great place to spend an evening. And their monthly LIVE on the Plaza event (held the second Friday of each month) is a great opportunity to experience a real-life block party.
Uptown is the latest area in OKC to see a renaissance. This area, located along Northwest 23rd Street, was once a prime place for business, the arts and entertainment. It seems that new restaurants, bars and retail shops are opening up all the time, and OKC'ers are flocking to check them out.
Locals love this ever-expanding strip! Near Crown Heights, Western Avenue offers a fantastic mix of the all-local. Some of the city's oldest and most legendary clubs and restaurants are located here. Sushi, pizza, wine bars, frozen yogurt, rock clubs, white tablecloths, red-checkered tablecloths, fantastic martinis, great laid-back ambiance and more can all easily be found on Western Avenue.
CAMPUS CORNER / MAIN STREET NORMAN
Located less than 25 minutes south of downtown OKC, Norman is a college town with all the characteristic atmosphere you'd expect. Campus Corner is electric, especially on OU home football game days, and offers a great mix of bars, clubs, restaurants and retail. Main Street in Norman is north of Campus Corner and is rapidly becoming a hotspot on its own.
MEMORIAL ROAD CORRIDOR
Home to many of your favorite names, Memorial Road boasts plenty of good fun and action. Catch a movie at Quail Springs Mall AMC Cinema then head out to a great dinner and drinks with your fellow OKCitians.
NORTHWEST EXPRESSWAY CORRIDOR
Similar to Memorial Road but offering some local fare, Northwest Expressway is a major hub of retail and dining in northwest Oklahoma City. A wide variety of restaurants and pubs abound, as does upper-end mall shopping and dining at Penn Square Mall and family entertainment options like Chuck E. Cheese. Not to mention this corridor has the fun factor. While you're in the area, don't miss the opportunity to have dinner and play some games at Dave & Busters or head down May Avenue to cruise around the track at Pole Position Raceway.
HORSE RACING / CASINOS
Fresh off a $7 million facelift and located in the Adventure District, Oklahoma City's Remington Park offers live thoroughbred and quarter horse racing, as well as a casino featuring 750 slot machines. Additionally, several Native American casinos offer intense gaming action all around the metro.
