It seems as if every city in the U.S. has a place called the 'Blue Note'. In OKC however, this one is not named after the legendary jazz label.

In fact, Blue Note is a haven for punk and rock fans, with at least one live act on stage during the week. Upon entering, the casual atmosphere and great drinks only highlight the music. And if you're here during happy hour you'll get to play a free game of pool and enjoy two drinks for the price of one.
