Just east of OKC’s downtown business district is Bricktown,the city’s original warehouse and distribution center turned entertainment district. Founded just days after the Land Run of 1889, Bricktown was, and still is, a central hub connecting not only railroads and highways, but local citizens and visitors. This thriving urban district is now home to more than 45 restaurants, bars, and retail shops, along with family-friendly attractions, a plethora of public art, museums, galleries, and even an urban beach for summer fun. The diversity of businesses, educational institutions, housing and leisure activities in this area make it a true 24/7 destination, one of the most distinct and historic in Oklahoma City. Modern stylish Bricktown is an enthusiastic diversion region, with reused distribution center spaces home to cafés, piano parlors and stylish wine bars. A varied blend of shops sell clothing, home stylistic layout and specialty food things like connoisseur toppings and carefully assembled chocolate. The Bricktown Water Taxi takes riders along the Bricktown Canal for visits and supper travels.
