This brand new park is a wonderful public space and people here are proud of it. Weekends there will typically be food trucks and live music regularly.

Right across the street from Scissortail park, this brand new hotel is boujee! (That means fancy). They have a day pass to their pool deck that overlooks the park, just ask the receptionist when you walk in the lobby! There is a spa and a gym that you can buy admission to. There are four-five different restaurants and bars to try inside. It’s not cheap, but it’s a really nice place.

One of the coolest spots in the city. Come if you want to find a confluence of great architecture, food, drinks, modern art, and interactive spaces.

Head to the top floor of Devon tower after dinner to get some $10 drinks and apps and a complimentary view that would be worth $100.

Unique 70’s-ish bar/lounge/dancefloor. It’s a strange place. I like it.

Asian food
The home is located right outside of the Asian district on Classen. You can’t really go wrong with any of the options along Classen between 36th and 23rd, but these are a few of my favorites. Disclaimer: I’m not Asian and I’m not an expert
Chinese. Authentic. Local favorite. Just ask the waiter what their favorite thing is and give it a shot.

Hidden gem inside of an annex of the Asian market! You might get lost trying to find it, but you will be rewarded with very cheap and delicious Asian food and teas.

I’m no expert, but I’d call it New York style. Very solid pizza and a good vibe in there. Good late night spot. Staple of the plaza.

Crazy good pizza. Thick fluffy dough and killer flavoring on every menu item. (Ask about some secret menu items, like “The Quin”) It’s owned by my sister’s husband’s uncle so support the fam I guess

Probably the most famous restaurant in OKC. It’s a Latin American lunch spot (I think Guatemalan) and it’s, quite frankly, amazing. Not overrated at all BUT you’ll have a wait any day of the week. They just started taking reservations so give that a shot.

Somehow distantly related to Cafe Kacao, this brunchy cousin of sorts has a shorter wait and, some would argue, better food. I love this place.
