Paseo Arts District

Historically, much of Oklahoma City's art identity has been located in the Paseo Arts District, a small neighborhood just north of downtown with nearly 80 working artists and 20 studios, all of which present new collections on the first Friday of every month during an art walk even winter months. Since the redevelopment of the urban core, though, visual arts are springing up all around downtown, both in the Arts District and in surrounding districts.

Embrace Your Inner Artist

The Paseo is full of local businesses that express themselves through goods and services, from painting and ceramics to books and food. Whether you want to add to your art collection or brush up on your own artistic skills, this district will act as your muse and provide all the inspiration you need.

Rub Elbows with the Locals at Paseo's Bars and Restaurants

The Paseo is surrounded by neighborhoods on all sides, so it makes sense that this district offers some of Oklahoma City’s favorite local hangouts. Be sure to check out the Paseo Grill, Picasso Café, the Oso, Scratch and Sauced, just to name a few. View the full list of restaurants in the Paseo here.
