Oklahoma City offers a variety of grand patio spaces that are bound to make you request outdoor seating.

Before the cooler and warmer temps arrive and drive us back inside, there are plenty of great choices for al fresco dining or enjoying drinks with friends in OKC.

One of the best outdoor dining spots downtown is at the base of the Devon Tower. Flint features contemporary American cuisine on a spacious, shaded patio complete with misters in warmer months. Flint is inside the Colcord Hotel, making it very convenient to Myriad Gardens, the Chesapeake Energy Arena and other downtown destinations.

Pizza Gusto

If you like the idea of a secret garden, Pizzeria Gusto has you covered. Gusto holds its own thanks to a tall privacy fence, shade trees, beautiful greenery, and flagstones beneath the tables.

Directly adjacent to Pizzeria Gusto is the Pump Bar. While it's temporarily closed until March 12, it's easily one of the most popular patios in the metro. While it’s better known as a bar and hangout, the former gas station features a small food menu, including locally famous tater tots.

At Barrios Fine Mexican Dishes in Midtown, the patio seats an equal number of guests as the inside, so it’s usually busy with diners. The bar puts out stellar cocktails and thanks to the outdoor fireplace, it’s even fun and cozy on chilly evenings.

If it’s drinks you want, the view of downtown from O Bar’s rooftop patio is impossible to beat. The bar sits atop the Ambassador Hotel in Midtown and many of the city’s best bartenders have spent time at this craft cocktail destination.

The Collective Kitchens + Cocktails is OKC’s latest food hall and gathering place that features a multi- kitchen concept, a 40-foot bar and a 95 person rooftop patio with a perfect view of downtown as the backdrop.

To take in one of the newest views of OKC, head up to the rooftop patio at Social Capital—just west of Scissortail Park. Social Capital is a craft beer destination that serves up cocktails, wine, over 120 draft beers, house-made ice cream and delicious fare.
