This laid-back restaurant/bar is dedicated to hot melts and beer, such a great combo it is surprising there aren't more places like this in every U.S. city. From the bar, visitors will find a rotating cascade of wonderful beers alongside some creative cocktails, try the Freestyle Shandy, a delectable mix of Pils, ginger beer and lemon. And to eat, the menu features the best Poutine in OKC and every single sandwich melt is amazing. From the 'Macaroni Pony' filled with Chipotle BBQ Pulled Pork and three-cheese mac in a jalapeno cornbread roll to the 'The Cortez' made with braised short ribs, there is no wrong choice. Take a look at the website for complete menu.
Looking for great food and live music? Go no further. This hot spot has been offering both since 1976. It does not have music every night, so call ahead, but it gets some great acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers. Enjoy a sandwich or salad, or just munch of some of the appetizers. This trendy Nichols Hills restaurant and bar is perfect for dinner or a fun night out. Expect a cover charge if there is entertainment. Enjoy Happy Hour from 4p-7p Monday through Friday with domestic longnecks on special and a free buffet.
Located in 50 Penn Place, the very upscale shopping center near Nichols Hills, Belle Isle is very popular with the local businesspeople for lunch. It is also a great weekend choice, with a dance floor and live music every Friday and Saturday night. There is a huge selection of dishes on the menu including everything from sandwiches to salmon. There are lots of great specials, particularly during their generous daily happy hour.
If you want to watch the big game and drink a few beers, try this place near Northwest Expressway and Hefner Parkway. From 4pm-6pm Monday through Friday, enjoy 75-cent draws (that is local for "drafts"). And enjoy Schnapps all the time. Oh, and there is barbecue too but only for lunch. If you are in town for Monday Night Football, this is a great place to watch it. On those very special occasions, 60-ounce pitchers are USD1.50, and the food is free. Enjoy darts, pool, shuffleboard, video games and pinball while you are here.
The food is very basic, burgers and fries. The specialty (if you can call it that) is a greasy onion burger. But people do not typically come here for the food. There is live music every Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday nights, and sometimes on Saturday, too. The music is rockabilly and progressive bluegrass. Aside from enjoying the music, you can also enjoy pool tables, dartboards and five television sets where you can watch the game.
