Bricktown
About
Bricktown, just east of Oklahoma City’s downtown business district, is the city’s original warehouse and distribution center turned entertainment district. You can go shopping, drink at a bar, dine at one of the many restaurants, and stroll along the Bricktown River Walk Park at your own pace. You can also catch a baseball game at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark or have fun on the sands of Bricktown Beach on summer days. The area is home to a plethora of public art, museums, and galleries, making it one of Oklahoma City’s most vibrant arts districts and a great attraction year-round. – Tripadvisor

    It's A Cool Area...
    Bricktown in OKC is cool. Exceptional...no. Is it as good as Beale Street in Memphis, or the French Quarter in New Orleans, Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, North Lincoln Avenue in Chicago, Lower Greenville in Dallas, Lower Broadway in Nashville, etc, etc? The obvious answer is "NO!" Bricktown in OKC is the bar and main entertainment area in Oklahoma City. There are some good bars, some good restaurants, and some good music venues. Is there anything exceptional? If there is, I haven't found it. I will visit Bricktown again whenever I am in OKC.

    Bricktown
    Bricktown is an area near downtown Oklahoma city with restaurants, bars, shops, and entertainment. There is a pretty little canal which winds its way through the southwest corner, and boat rides of the canal are available. I went with a group during a midweek evening. There area was busy, but no overly crowded. We did a wine tasting and got dinner at a steakhouse. I would imagine it's a good spot to enjoy the nightlife on a weekend.

    OKC's Downtown Entertainment District
    Bricktown is Oklahoma's Downtown Entertainment District. It is an historic part of the city where old warehouse buildings were transformed into new restaurants, bars and hotels and where new structures like a baseball stadium and canal were built to cement the tourist district experience. I stayed here in the Hampton Inn overlooking the stadium and ate dinner here at Mickey Mantle's Steakhouse. I had intended to see the nightlife as well; however, a severe thunderstorm storm and tornado altered that idea. I did get up the next morning and walk the district and canal as well as eat lunch across from the stadium at Fuzzy's Taco.

    OK gems!
    What a surprise! Our wedding weekend trip was a real treat! Who knew OKCity had such a lovely time planned for us. W e stayed at 21C Museum hotel which was a great choice and highly recommended for an authentic art museum look-around 24 hours a day and a uniquely decorated room to stay in! Our meal at Mary Eddy's, restaurant in the building of hotel, was exceptional, too! Food was a real work of art, tasty and the wine pairing was great, too. All of the staff from check-in to serving in the restaurant were kind and very knowledgable. We took some time and went to the National Cowboy Museum and were surprised at the art show there and museum features. The Brickyard part of town was a nice change of scenery as we walked the riverfront and ate at Charleston! Pass up Toby Keith's for this gem on the river! And finally, a time of reflection at the OKC Memorial. This museum will leave you with a tear in your eye and a new appreciation/reminder of the great country we live in!

    Nice to walk around
    Stopped overnight in Oklahoma on a Route 66 coach tour, so went for a short walk around bricktown before it started to rain. Good vibe down there with lots of young people, food outlets, bars and a canal. Well worth the walk to have a look or grab some food or a coffee

    We thorough enjoyed the area
    Bricktown isn’t as large as we anticipated. That being said when we visited last Saturday we found it lively and fun. There is something for everyone from bars with live entertainment overlooking the canal, a variety of good restaurants, a popular mini golfing area, the canal walkway with its twists and turns, fountains and statues and also the water taxi tour.

    Good River Walk!
    We took a free shuttle to Bricktown from Country Inn. We walked along the Bricktown about 5 minutes. We had seafood at Crab Town. Then we took the Bricktown Water Taxi for about 40 minutes. The highlight was the bronze statues at Centennial Land Run Monument.

    Something to do
    Rode through the canal which I recommend - its fun. Lots of restaurants line the canal, we didn't eat at any of those. I was expecting more as far as shops along the way. Artsy stuff to see. Not really for little kids. I prefer San Antonio River Walk which is more beautiful.

    An enjoyable visit.
    We spent part of our morning in Bricktown. We likely should have stayed longer, but we enjoyed the tine we had there. The Chickasaw Ballpark was of course closed, but we able to get a look inside by going to the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame/Jim Thorpe museum. We also visited the OKC Dodgers gift shop, and we saw a part of the canal walk area. Overall, very nice. Probably more exciting later in the day, but well-worth a visit.

    Great Area, Mediocre Tour
    It’s definitely something you need to do while in OKC, but it wasn’t very exciting. Our tour guide was great, but there wasn’t much she can say to keep everyone entertained. Brick town is a great concept and the new food truck area will help bring more people in.

Great place for families, couples and or friends to find eating places as well as water taxi and miniature golf. City needs to invest in public restrooms for this area and more benches for resting and enjoying the atmosphere. Many need to wear masks. Water Taxi rides were practicing social distancing very well.

We were there on the Tuesday after the 4th of July. Many things were closed. The whole area had a very closed-off and dead feeling, which is weird for the height of tourist season. The most disappointing thing was the amount of litter we saw as we walked around. There were red solo cups in a pile by the canal, liquor bottles and cigarette trash along the streets, and general trash on corners. We ended up going back to our hotel immediately after doing the water taxi tour, which was the only activity open in the area.

It is easy to see what it COULD be when things are open, and I think it is probably enjoyable. I can only comment on my experience, however. There were many better things to do in the city.

Bricktown is such a nice place to spend an evening. We first walked the path to the Centennial Land Run Monument which is a huge set of sculptures. Then we came across a Bass Pro Shops and did some shopping there. After that we walked back towards the downtown part and went for a snack and some drinks. There is a variety of nice restaurants and bars along the way. We also did the miniature golf and games at the center of Bricktown. All of us really had a great time and it is such a nice area.

I stayed at the Hyatt Place on a Friday night, getting there right before the end of a baseball game that culminated with an impressive fireworks show, beginning a vibrant evening of happy enjoyment. I walked around briefly, noticing a strip club, dance club, several bars and eateries, and chose one at random. The Indian taco that I took back to my room was okay but the people I encountered were so chill; one girl behind the bar took my order but then I saw her and a coworker/friend have a shot, then walk out and sit among the patrons. When she saw my confusion she said that her shift had ended but offered to buy me a drink, which I politely declined. In the meantime I spied a couple enjoying some great looking wings, and when I said I should have ordered those the guy offered me one; again I politely declined. All the while a guitar playing performer was covering tunes by Travis Tritt, Bob Seger, and several other good rockers. It was a fun, high energy night.

Amtrak station right in Bricktown, no rental vehicle required, 100% walkable, light rail and scooters, River Walk and Minor league baseball all right there.
Light rail makes getting to and from downtown very easy.
Great place for a weekend trip.
Do a little homework and you will see that Oklahoma did a great job with this place.

Overpriced. When you make a reservation at a hotel in the Bricktown Area be sure and notice the parking information. Start with your hotel rate then add almost 15% fit sale tax and hotel tax. The hotel we stayed the self parking was $25 per night in an area about a block away, you could park on street but that is metered now or you can valet for $32 per night. We valet because we arrived late in the evening. Stayed 2 nights checked out and they have to change sales tax on valet parking another $4.35. Other hotels are about the same. Found one that has own parking lot but rooms are twice as much.

Our first visit to Oklahoma City. Met up with some family for an afternoon seeing some of the city sites. Quiet weekday afternoon as our group of 7 descended on the canal. It was an overcast afternoon, having rained that morning so not too many people about. Plus there is COVID-19! I'm sure on a sunny day when things are normal, this place is hopping. But on our visit, with some restaurants closed and other buildings not showing any signs of life, it just seemed gloomy despite some people enjoying lunch or a drink or playing games. Still it was an opportunity for our group to chat and catch up as we walked around. And to appreciate how the old buildings have been rehabbed for a new purpose as well as the colorful murals! If you have the time, take the canal boat tour...very interesting and an easy way to see much of what Bricktown has to offer!

Its about a 3-hour drive from Dallas and away from the hustle and bustle of major cities. Not too much in terms of activities but has enough to keep a family busy for a weekend. We visited their minor league baseball field, Bricktown water taxi, and science museum. They have enough shopping around and the downtown is much calmer than most other cities. We literally couldn’t find anyone in downtown on a Saturday evening around 8 pm. This was a relaxing weekend for our family and it is worth exploring this cute little city.
