6 Best OKC Date Night Ideas

The Plaza District

This place is hands down one of the best date night spots in the city. With so many restaurants and entertainment options you can return again and again. Try UpDown for a Friday night date that will not only be a nostalgia bomb but friendly on the wallet. With free tokens to the first 100 guests and 2$ pizza by the slice, you can’t go wrong. Enjoy a nice cocktail or beer on the patio and challenge your spouse to some Mario kart. 

Is the arcade scene not your thing? Get some delicious Laotion food at Ma Der Lao and catch an Improv show at OKC Improv. After snagging some ice cream at Roxy’s you can walk the strip.

Still not impressed? Go get a Burger at New State Burger and check out the whimsical shops while waiting to see a show at Lyric Theater

The Collective

I think one of the things that plague date night decisions is where to eat. The Collective is a culmination of restaurants where everyone can find something. The best part? There’s a rooftop bar where you can enjoy your dinner or a drink on a lovely evening. 

Picnic at Scissortail Park

On a budget? Pack a basket full of your Favorite finger food  and a blanket and head to Scissortail. The park has multiple places you can spread out a quilt and simply enjoy a lovely day. Fly a kite. Take a walk across the Skydance Bridge and check out its LED lights in the evenings (lit up for special holidays and events as well)! Fresh air and good company are always great.

Hefner Lake

Oklahoma is well known for its amazing sunsets, so why not enjoy those by a lake? With Mama Roja and Redrock Canyon Grill, you can enjoy a delicious meal while having an amazing view. 


Another fun strip where you can walk the sidewalk and find something delicious to eat. You can also make it a fancy date at The Drake for seafood or a laid-back evening at Big Truck Taco with outside seating. The Tower Theater always has a great show to see. 

Frontier City

What’s more fun than re-living your adolescent years than reliving them with your spouse? Split a funnel cake and make him win you a stuffed bear (That you could probably have purchased at target for a cheaper price but what fun is that?) Then scream your lungs out on a roller coaster or two. Finish the day with a spin around the ferris wheel.

Jessie Magee
Hi! I’m Jessie! Born and raised in Central Oklahoma, I am currently enjoying suburban life with my toddler, husband, and a sweet little terrier. I love diving into anything nerdy from engaging in a fantasy novel to playing a tabletop game with friends. I love to make people laugh. Catch me watching a football game, making cookies, or painting dinosaurs with my daughter. My struggles once defined me, but now they help mold me. I want to lift fellow mothers who silently suffer in the shadows. Chronic illness and pain are invisible, but very real. Our battles are tough, but our resolve is strong. You’ll never see me hide my tears, and neither should you.
