Deep in the heart of Oklahoma City’s illustrious neighborhoods lies nestled three warm welcomes. These hotspots are pinnacles of the local OKC dweller’s social Saturday night and Sunday morning brunch. Join old friends and make new ones as you gather around comforting firepits, classic lawn games, and scrumptious, custom cocktails.
Take shelter underneath the canvas tarp of the most festive patio in town. The Pump Bar, open since 2014, has cemented itself into the cracks and crevices of 24th and Walker. With over a dozen drafts on tap, and a fridge stocked with variety, it’s the perfect place to crack a pint of familiar or explore a new favorite. Don’t hesitate to try the lovely Bar Babes’ daily Dirty Harry cocktails. The decadent food specials, also concocted daily, will leave your belly feeling hugged. Circle-up around the fire – light a little fire – and share a story and a smile.
The heater-snuggled patio is the perfect place to unwind after a long day on the grind. Regarded as OKC skateboarders’ hideaway, the energy of the staff and patrons matches the welcoming demeanor of the skate community. Enjoy the worn, sometimes comical, assortment of JENGA blocks and 4-in-a-Rows. If your stomach is rumbling after a few games, order a Dorito-encrusted chicken breast, served on top of the cheesiest mac-n-cheese in town. Wash down your meal with a clever contraption: Adult Juice Pouch – served in a variety of flavors. Come for a good time; leave with greater memories. Just be sure to dodge the dude shitting the pole-jam out front.
Mixing the best of new-age splendor and old-school swagger, the laughs to be had at this establishment are endless. The fun begins with the nostalgic jangle of coins in your pocket, and it intensifies with each thumb-press against a steel coin-slot. Whether you and your friends are waiting twenty-five minutes on a table down the street, or an hour-long war has been waged over skee-ball, this arcade-bar’s doors are open for fun. Ding, dong, punch, and kick your way into The Plaza District’s newest glee-town locale.
