On a recent trip to Oklahoma City. I was struck by the incredible history, landscape, and cityscapes Oklahoma City had to offer.
During my extended stay, I got to visit some of the best rooftop bars in the area and tasted some of the finest drinks I have ever had hands down.
Oklahoma City did not disappoint. Check out my list of the best rooftop bars in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma below!
730 NW 23rd St, Oklahoma City, OK 73103
Guyutes features an eclectic scene serving comfort food with a twist. A dive bar feel without the “grunge”, the patio bar is one of the first in Oklahoma City.
When I visited, I had the chance to catch a game, but the atmosphere is just as enjoyable in the open-air listening to a few jams.
I sampled some Traffic Light nachos and indulged myself with a China Cat cocktail. In my opinion, they are must-tries.
201 NW 10th St, Oklahoma City, OK 73103
Packard’s is housed in a 1920s automotive showroom that has transformed into one of the best places for eclectic food and drinks.
Here, you’ll get to soak in spectacular views of the OKC skyline while you savor well-crafted cocktails and an impressive list of local beers.
You could even attend one of their live events or ESPN broadcasts. I came during lunch hour, which gave me a welcome opportunity to experience their delicious fontina shrimp dip.
While it was a touch too early for alcohol, I hear only good things about their jalapeno-infused Bloody Mary and cold-brewed Old Fashion.
Ambassador Hotel, 1200 N Walker Ave 7th Floor, Oklahoma City, OK 73103
The premier rooftop bar in Oklahoma City, O Bar offers breathtaking sunsets overlooking the city skyline.
Expect modern French bistro fare, led by Oklahoma’s culinary icon Kurt Fleischfresser. Their globally-inspired menu features appetizers to full-course meals.
I treated myself to some decadent truffle fries and The Empress cocktail, an irresistible cocktail that made my day. Their beer and wine offerings are well-selected combinations of local and international favorites.
1324 W Memorial Rd, Oklahoma City, OK 73114
Chisholm Creek’s luxury sports bar, Chalk Sports is always a winning bet. This rooftop bar offers Vegas-style books and a wide selection of TVs.
So, you never have to worry about missing out on the action. Their menu serves up classic game-day foods with a luxurious touch.
The wings are always a fan favorite, which I paired with the obligatory beer. However, there are plenty of blended cocktail options, too.
1004 N Hudson Ave STE 106, Oklahoma City, OK 73105
Originally a food truck, this wood-fired pizza kitchen has creatively combined classic pizza flavors with seasonal flare. Their patio is cozy, inviting, and family-friendly.
I loved their unique flavors, while their gluten-free and vegan Bridge veggie pizza was a thrill to have. The Hall’s has a bakery, too, making it a great place for brunch.
13230 Pawnee Dr #200, Oklahoma City, OK 73114
Located in the fastest-growing entertainment and shopping district, Sidecar Barley & Wine Bar has one of the largest rooftop bars in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
But the one that left a lasting (and positive!) impression on me was the Patakahata cocktail. You’ll also find one of the finest Old Fashions in the state!
517 S Hudson Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73109
Craft beer enthusiasts flock to Social Capital Downtown. With 120 beers on draft, you are bound to find a favorite. Their specialty cocktails and wine lists are also a draw.
The Mexican-influenced bar food is light enough to accommodate an evening stroll in the beautiful Scissortail Park it overlooks. My top pick is the Destination Wedding, which was a pleasant local take on Mexican cerveza.
209 N Walnut Ave, Oklahoma City, OK 73104
This posh bar is within walking distance of the Paycom Center, popular entertainment venues, and historical and cultural sites.
The menu offers bacon-wrapped salmon and thick, juicy burgers. I couldn’t resist ordering the Angus cheeseburger (with plenty of French fries!). I had lunch, but the menu is varied enough to be ideal for dinner and late-night outings, too.
333 W Sheridan Ave 49th Floor, Oklahoma City, OK 73102
With Lake Hefner to the west and the State Capital to the east, I adored the stunning views on offer at this restaurant! Bear in mind that this is a place to dress to the nines.
Directed by legendary Kurt Fleischdresser and executive chef Paul Langer, dining here is second only to the spectacular scenery.
I particularly enjoyed the herb marinated chicken, which I happily paired with a charming sauvignon blanc.
Besides white wine, there are classic and modern specialty cocktails, craft beers, exquisite reds, and cider.
19 NE 6th Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73104
Fairly new to the rooftop bar scene, City and State is the perfect place to tantalize your palate. Every meal is flawlessly executed and takes advantage of seasonal offerings.
A favorite for brunch, I adored City and State’s take on the southern classic, chicken and waffles. Keep in mind they have a business casual dress code.
Getting to know Oklahoma through its food, drink, and attractions has been an incredible experience. Whether for a vacation or stay-cation, a night on the town or a weekend brunch, Oklahoma City is the destination of choice.
