I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! Only two more days and we're into the weekend woohooo!! I seriously live for the weekends, since I get less that 24 hours a week with my hubby we like to take advantage of the time we get together. We are huge "foodie" people so when we decide to do date night it's normally a fancy restaurant and maybe drinks after. With OKC expanding and becoming so huge on food and local places, I wanted to share some of mine and Stephens favorite date night spots.
I love this place hence why I rated it number one on this list. Their food is amazing especially their brunch. They have one of the best bloody marry's in OKC. I love the fact that they have their own rooftop bar that over looks the OKC skyline. It's a spot where you can hangout with your friends or just your significant other after dinner is over either way is going to be a blast. Plus it is located in the heart of midtown and you can hit up Fassler Hall, Bleu Garten, or Kongs after you are done eating.
This is a two spot stop, this upscale bar is a no brainer for a date night if you're looking for a chill glass of wine or signature cocktail. They have two locations but I personally prefer the new location in Chisholm Creek. I love that it's on the rooftop and they have a long glass fireplace that runs the length of the outside deck. It just screams romance and all you need is your S.O. and your favorite drink.
3. O Bar
Overlooking midtown this stunning lounge is located on the 7th Floor of the @AmbassadorOKC hotel. The view when the sun is setting is just a dream and is perfect for a romantic night. This is definitely a place that you will want to get dressed up for, so maybe a special occasion kind of place.
4. The Ranch
Im just going to go ahead and say in my opinion they have the best steaks in OKC hands down. (Stephen would say Mahoganys downtown but we can beg to differ. Honestly they are both amazing.) I've been a lot of places and this place is by far my favorite. So If you are looking for a top notch steak well your search is over!
5. Goro Ramen
I can't rave about this place enough!! I have always had a soft spot in my heart for ramen and maybe because its all I ate in college but I don't care I still love it. This place ,however, should not really be compared to the 50 cent packages you can get at the grocery store. This Ramen is like 100000 times better than the package ramen ever was. It's such a cute little trendy spot and you are going to want to order one of every single appetizer they offer! Yes, it is that good.
6. The Drake
I will start this by saying I have not ate here yet but all of my friends rave about it. It's definitely on mine and Stephen's list of places to eat so I thought it should be put here for you guys as well. I'll try and update you guys when we do check this place out!
One of my favorite patios in OKC! They have an amazing brunch as well as a super fancy dinner selections. This place is also located very close to Chesapeake Energy Arena so you can eat here and then catch a Thunder game or concert.
This is a new spot in NW OKC and I am silently cursing them bc they are less than a mile from my house. You know how much will power that it takes to not eat there every day??!! They do not serve food; only ice creams, custards, shakes, etc... but I don't hear anyone complaining. I have yet to try anything except for the snowmonster mainly because it's beyond amazing and I have a hard time deviating from something when I love it.
9. Red Rock Canyon Grill (Lake Hefner)
I recommend this place on Thursday nights mainly because during the summer they have a live band! If you go here you have to get the Dip Duo with Tortilla Chips, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. They also have a huge selection of wines and they have an outside patio that over looks the lake which is gorgeous!
You would think you were trying to get into some place in LA on a Saturday night. If you are wanting to try this hot spot out you will definitely want to book a couple weeks in advance! I will say it 100 percent lives up to the hype and worth planning a head for. They have one of the best brunches in town and their dinner is also divine!
Let me know if you have checked out any of these places and what your favorite OKC date night spot is!
