Late-night bites


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

What a wealth of choices! We remember the days when the only places to eat after 10 p.m. were Denny’s and Waffle House. Next time you’re out late with friends, check out OKC’s abundance of local late-night eatery options.

OKG eat: Cool places, cooler drinks


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

We know. It’s hot. It’s summer in Oklahoma. Cool down by sampling cocktails that local bars and restaurants have concocted just for you. Find a nice, air conditioned space or a shaded patio and while away the hours drinking the flavors of summer. You might decide it’s not that bad after all.

OKG Eat: Gay bar, anyone?


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green
You could say this bar is nestled in the Habana Inn, but “nestled” is far too subtle a word to describe the industrialgrade light and sound that happen in one of the oldest dance clubs in the district.

OKG eat: Wine country


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

According to the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department, the state boasts nearly 50 wineries. That’s enough to keep you busy touring for a while. We’ve rounded up a few that are closer to the metro. You can brag to your friends that you spent the weekend touring wine country and didn’t even have to book a plane ticket.

OKG eat: Just desserts


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green
Life is uncertain; eat dessert first.

You know what’s great about being a grown-up? Getting to go to bed whenever you want. You know what else is great? Getting to eat whenever and whatever you want. Go ahead; no one’s going to stop you. Waltz into one of these local restaurants and order dessert first. In this crazy world, there are few certainties. These are sure things.

OKG eat: Rooftops


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

What’s better than a patio? A rooftop patio, where you can enjoy all of the pleasures of outdoor dining. The temps are finally rising to make these spots ideal for the coming weeks before we careen headlong into blazing temperatures. Grab a cocktail or an appetizer and enjoy the view.

OKG eat: Have a (snow) ball this summer


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

Nothing is better when you’re roasting in the sun than a flavored ball of snow, with sugary-sweet syrup poured over finely shaved and packed ice. There are some serious snow cone stands in OKC. Cool your taste buds when the temperatures get to right below “blast furnace.”

Find these at places like the Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City Farmers Market and Urban Agrarian.

OKG eat: Highfalutin dining


OKG7 Dining

Louis Fowler

You don’t have to be a millionaire or a head of state to eat like one. While dining like a king every night might quickly take its toll on your pocketbook, sometimes it feels good to eat like a well-heeled big wheel. For a special occasion or maybe just as a special treat, look no farther than these upscale eateries to tempt your taste buds and delight your palate.

OKG7 eat: Fresh off the farm


OKG7 Dining

Devon Green

There was a time not too terribly long ago in Oklahoma City when there was a chain on every corner and the closest you could get to local was to make a trip to your farmers market and make the food yourself. We always celebrate all things local, and luckily, it’s getting easier for OKC restaurants to incorporate locally grown, all- natural ingredients into what they offer.
