Restaurants

From high-end hot spots to beloved hole-in-the-walls, the downtown area has dining options for every budget and taste. In the Bricktown Entertainment District, just east of the Central Business District, you’ll find the largest cluster of restaurants in the neighborhood.

Indulge in juicy steaks while celebrating an Oklahoma City baseball legend at Mickey Mantle’s Steakhouse. This classic steakhouse has made a name for itself with chops such as the huge Prime Cowboy Cut Ribeye and the Applewood Smoked Bacon Berkshire Pork Chop, drizzled with brown maple butter. Other buzzed about menu items include the lobster risotto, the snow crab legs and the pan roasted sea bass.

Nearby, KD’s Southern Cuisine serves up southern favorites with a modern twist. Owned by a popular Oklahoma City Thunder NBA player, this stylish restaurant is in high demand. Must-try appetizers include the free range chicken skewers known as Thunder Sticks, served with honey peanut salsa. Order the most popular entrées, such as the honey fried chicken with bacon, the massive Tomahawk bone-in rib eye and the BBQ pork ribs. Save room for the raved about desserts, included the four-layer red velvet cake and the blackberry cobbler.

Outside of Bricktown, head to Kitchen No. 324 in the Central Business District for rustic, organic baked good and light bites. The popular brunch menu includes favorites such as Kitchen Green Eggs & Ham, which includes pesto and arugula-topped eggs, prosciutto and potatoes. Order a curated cup of coffee, along with one of the made-from-scratch bakery items, like the maple French cruller or Bavarian cream-filled ganache donut.

This massive, European-style nightclub features two huge dance floors, three bars, LED-lit walls, state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, and luxurious VIP service.

History

The downtown area has long been the main hub of business and commerce in Oklahoma City, since the area was first settled in the 1800s. After decades of decline, redevelopment of the downtown area began in the 90’s, creating the distinct districts that make up the area today.

Many cultural attractions can be found downtown. Explore local native American heritage at the American Indian Cultural Center & Museum in the Automobile Alley district. At the Oklahoma City National Memorial in the heart of downtown, learn about the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing tragedy, and walk through the beautiful memorial built for the victims.

Other cultural attractions in the downtown area include the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and the Civic Center Music Hall, home to Broadway shows and the OKC Philharmonic. Annual events includes the Bricktown Blues & BBQ Festival and the six-day Festival of the Arts.

Transportation

Although it’s easy to get around on foot within most of the downtown districts, the sprawling size of the entire neighborhood makes public transportation an ideal option. Oklahoma City’s EMBARK transit system provides several buses with routes that travel all over the downtown area. You can also get around most of downtown on the Oklahoma Spirit Trolley, which only costs a quarter. It’s even free if you park in one of the designated downtown parking lots.

With Interstate 235 running through it, you can easily access the downtown area by car. The ample parking garages spread through the neighborhood make it simple to park your car and walk around or hop on public transportation. An increasingly bike-friendly city, downtown continues to add biking lanes on all the major streets. Downtown also has its own bike sharing program, Spokies, allowing you to rent a bike from any kiosk in the neighborhood.

Other transportation options include traditional cabs, which can be hailed from major points of interests and hotels in the area. You can also use the ride-sharing program Uber to get a ride around town. In Bricktown, take advantage of the Bricktown Bike Cabs and the Bricktown Water Taxi to get around the district.

Cost

Living in the downtown area will cost you a bit more than the city average, but it’s still relatively affordable, compared to other large cities in the United States. You can expect to pay an average of $967 for a one-bedroom apartment in the downtown neighborhood.

It’s very affordable to travel to and around the downtown area on Oklahoma City’s EMBARK buses at, just $1.75 for local buses and $3.00 for express buses. It doesn’t cost much to drive around the downtown area either, as gas prices are typically about 14 percent lower than the national average. At a local pub, a pint of beer should cost you $3 to $4.

Shopping

Although you’ll find a slew of well-known brand name stores and shops throughout downtown, the neighborhood prides itself on having a large number of locally owned, independent stores, ranging from luxury clothing to mom and pop shops.

Along with restaurants and nightlife, Bricktown boasts an eclectic shopping scene with primarily independent shops. Check out the Oklahoma Red Dirt Emporium, which specializes in a variety of products prepared in Oklahoma, including hand-crafted home decor, clothing and music. Sample and take home local wines at Put a Cork in It Winery.

Nearby, check out the shops at the Plaza District on 16th Street, which features a number of shops owned by local artists selling their hand-made goods. Purchase cool, re-purposed home decor and vintage clothing at Bad Granny’s Bazaar, or shop for rare, mid-century furnishing at RetrOKC.

While there are no major grocery stores within the downtown area, the Native Roots Market offers a carefully curated, gourmet grocery experience. Shop for all organic produce, meats and exotic spices at this high-end grocery store. There are no regular farmer’s markets within downtown’s boundaries, but the Farmers Public Market, just a few blocks west of downtown, is open weekly on Saturday mornings.

Parks

The downtown area has a few small parks. Bicentennial Park sits in front of Civic Center Music Hall and provides a well-landscaped green space in the heart of the city. The park does not have many amenities for kids or exercising, but there is a picturesque fountain and sculpture to enjoy. In Bricktown, the River Walk Park that surrounds the canals offers a few walking and jogging trails.

Also, in the heart of downtown, the Myriad Botanical Garden offers 17 acres of lush gardens, which includes a children’s garden, splash fountains, walking and jogging paths and an off-leash dog park.
