Uptown 23 is a work in progress, but there is plenty to see and do when you get there. Located near NW 23 and Classen, Uptown 23 is one of Oklahoma City’s oldest retail corridors. It has long been home to the city’s Asian District, anchored by the grocery store Super Cao Nguyen, which is worth a trip to get your fill of Asian cuisine and ingredients.
Now the area is teeming with new development and restaurants going east from there to Broadway/Interstate 235. The restaurants appeal to any taste – tacos, hot dogs, pizza, Vietnamese food, barbecue, fine dining, fish and even a bar located in an old gas station – and new ones are being opened regularly. It’s truly a place to watch and includes the historic Tower Theater currently undergoing renovations into a live music venue set to open next year. (Read more here and here.)
Whichever district you are visiting, find out even more about what to eat, enjoy or experience there online at the Oklahoma City Convention and Visitors Bureau’s website at www.visitokc.com, which has all kinds of lists in general, and, more specifically, for the Adventure District, the Plaza District and Uptown 23.
