Located north of downtown along Broadway Avenue, the Automobile Alley district was originally home to the city’s car dealerships, a fact that is immortalized in the neon signs that still hang from its original buildings. The past and the present have combined to make this district effortlessly cool with lots to offer, including some of Oklahoma City’s best shopping, dining and nightlife.
Bring your appetite to one of the local restaurants
HillBilly Po’Boys and Oysters brings a sophisticated twist to its namesake sandwich, and its bar is a haven for moonshine lovers everywhere (all of their cocktails are moonshine-based). For a refined take on the urban chophouse concept, Broadway 10 Bar & Chophouse offers wood-fired meats and handcrafted cocktails.
Wet your whistle with whiskey or wine
For wine lovers, Waters Edge Winery offers more than 50 different locally-made wines from the world’s finest grapes. You can even create, bottle, cork and label your own private vintage to commemorate your visit. For stronger libations, check out Sidecar Barley & Wine Bar. Sidecar offers beer and wine on tap, single-malt scotch and local house cocktails. And with bar food that consists of smoked salmon, gourmet paninis and fresh hummus, you can count on this bar to elevate your happy hour to the next level.
Treat yourself to a souvenir at one of the local shops
Be sure to visit The Factory, an upscale clothing boutique; SHOP GOOD, a philanthropic-minded shop offering jewelry, clothing and gifts; PLENTY Mercantile, a sustainably-focused shop that offers a variety of goods; and Rawhide, a luxury ranch lifestyle store with everything from boots to custom furniture.
