Our Favorite Tulsa Bars for a Fun Night Out

I have always lived in Missouri but find myself in Oklahoma all of the time. From friends I met at camp when I was 15 to my former college roommate, I know so many people in Oklahoma!

My former college roommate lives in Tulsa, and we are always looking for fun places to go out. I wanted to share my favorites with you all so others can have the same great experiences.

Valkyrie is a block from Guthrie Green. Allie, my roommate, and I went to a music festival at Guthrie Green and walked over to Valkyrie after the show to grab some drinks!

I tried the Heirloom Rustic Ales Hand Lantern, an Italian Pilsner. My roommate went for a pale ale called the American Solera Pale Ale Party.

Hodges Bend

Hodges Bend is in the Blue Dome District, right off highway 444. It is a great place to stop for an afternoon drink while driving from one side of the city to the other since it is so close to the highway.

I have never been to Hodges Bend in the evening, but in the afternoon, I can never turn down one of their coffee cocktails. My favorite coffee cocktail is the Builders Brew!

Saturn Room

Near Guthrie Green, Saturn Room was mine and Allie’s second bar stop after our music festival. We walked right over to the Saturn Room from Valkyrie.

The Saturn Room is a taste of the tropics in the center of Tulsa. Drinks with fruity flavors like Mai Tai and the Old Cuban were some of our favorites!

Arnie’s Bar

My best friend from Stillwater drove up to Tulsa to go to a Drillers minor league baseball game with her brother, who lives in Tulsa, and me. We had a great time at the game and headed to Arnie’s bar after the final whistle was blown.

Known for being the best place to go in Tulsa on St. Patrick’s Day, Arnie’s bar was a hit after the game with their delicious beers on tap!


302 S Cheyenne Ave, Tulsa, OK 74103
Phone: (918) 932-8571

I love to watch basketball. My old roommate, not so much. I finally convinced her to go to an Oklahoma City Thunder game at the BOK center in Tulsa.

She didn’t love the game, but she did love getting drinks and snacks at MixCo right after! We concluded that the Bourbon Peach Smash and Bond Girl were the two best cocktails they had on the menu!

Nothing’s Left Brewing Co.

1502 E 6th St, Tulsa, OK 74120
Phone: (918) 606-1902

After a morning spent at Veterans Park in the Pearl District of Tulsa, my friend and I headed to Nothing’s Left Brewing Co. for some afternoon drinks.

They have some quirky flavors! My favorites were Salted Watermelon Crusher and Man Hands! Their interesting flavors had me wanting to come back for more.

The Starlite Bar

Right by the medical mile in Tulsa on Terrace Drive sits The Starlite Bar. Another small, out-of-the-way bar that I am so glad we found!

Drinking craft cocktails while watching an improv comedy was just what I needed on a Tuesday night. My favorite drink of the night was Mr. Jiggles!

Juniper Restaurant

Phone: (918) 794-1090

Allie and I wanted to try this German restaurant we had been hearing about for months. One day we found ourselves downtown and thought, why not.

After dinner, we stumbled upon Juniper Restaurant right next door, so we headed in for some evening drinks! It was early September, so I was trying to usher in the fall and tried the Stem Ciders Raspberry Dry Cider!

Kilkenny’s Irish Pub

1413 E 15th St, Tulsa, OK 74120
Phone: (918) 582-8282
Visit Website

Where else would we go on St. Patrick’s Day than to an Irish Pub? Kilkenny’s Irish Pub is near Tracy Park, right off highway 64. We had a hearty Irish dinner, consisting of Jenkinstown Cottage Pie and Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake.

After dinner, I felt it was necessary to have some whiskey on the rocks. I tried the Bushmill’s Black Bush, and I am glad I did!

St. Vitus

112 S Elgin Ave suite b, Tulsa, OK 74120
Phone: (918) 551-7842

After seeing a concert at Oneok Field, Allie and I were ready for a night in the town. We first headed to St. Vitus because it was so close.

This electronic dance club was hopping on a Friday night. I had a classic Old Fashioned to start the night. They know how to make them right!

Bull In The Alley

An afternoon at The Tulsa Theater in the Arts District called for a fancy dinner. We stumbled upon Bull In The Alley, a cosmopolitan chophouse and tavern.

Oren Restaurant

I didn’t think a Saturday morning at Zink Park flying kites couldn’t get any better until I searched nearby restaurants and found Oren Restaurant!

Their locally-sourced brunch menu was delicious. I had the French Toast and mimosa for brunch, while my friend went for the avocado toast sandwich.

Roof Sixty-Six Rooftop Bar

A night of bar-hopping ended at the Roof Sixty-Six Rooftop Bar. The spectacular views and tasty cocktails had us lured in for the night.

I wanted to try a lot of their drinks, but after trying the Ginger Apple Snap, my order was the same all night!

Soundpony Lounge

409 N Main St, Tulsa, OK 74103
Phone: (918) 582-7669

Right off of 244 in the heart of Tulsa sits Soundpony Lounge. Soundpony Lounge is home to some of the best live music events in Tulsa!

Each event has different food and drink options. I went for the Ugly Boy Brunch that had performances by Chicos Feos. We ate classic brunch fares like waffles and mimosas.

Boston Title & Abstract

In the heart of Tulsa sits Boston Title & Abstract. After a day exploring the DECOPOLIS Tulsa Art Deco Museum, my girlfriends and I stopped by Boston Title & Abstract for some drinks and snacks.

We paired an appetizer of herbed mussels with some fine wine and bread on the side! It was some delicious, upscale dining.

The Hunt Club

224 N Main St, Tulsa, OK 74103
Phone: (918) 599-9200
Visit Website

The Hunt Club is another great stop in the bustling parts of Tulsa. I went to visit my brother and his friends, and this pub and grub spot was a perfect place for me to go out and be one of the boys for the day!

One of their specialties is empanadas, so I had to try some! The TCB was my favorite! The guys got some jerk BBQ chicken wings that they shared with the table, which was also a hit.

The Max Retropub

114 S Elgin Ave, Tulsa, OK 74120
Phone: (918) 895-6200
Visit Website

The Max Retropub is one of the most unique places you will find in Tulsa! This themed bar will make you feel like you stepped back in time with its 80s and 90s arcade games throughout!

I was having a beer-drinking night, and The Max Retropub had great draft beers. I stuck with the Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Ale and the Roughtail Everything Rhymes with Orange.

McNellie’s South City

7031 S Zurich Ave, Tulsa, OK 74136
Phone: (918) 933-5250
Visit Website

If you find yourself in southeast Tulsa, stop by McNellie’s South City. My friend and I stopped by after a Sunday golfing at Southern Hills Country Club for some pub food and drinks.

I wasn’t starving, so I just had some appetizers and drinks. The fried pickle chips and giant pretzel paired perfectly with Irish beer on tap!

The Tavern

201 N Main St, Tulsa, OK 74103
Phone: (918) 949-9801
Visit Website

The Tavern is in the Arts District of Tulsa, where all of the action is! After seeing an Oklahoma classic, Turnpike Troubadours, at Cain’s ballroom, my friends and I stopped by The Tavern.

I had been drinking cocktails at the concert, so I didn’t want to switch things up too much afterward. The Forbidden Fruit was my favorite craft cocktail of the night!

Bar 46

107 N Boulder Ave, Tulsa, OK 74103
Phone: (918) 398-7114

On a random Tuesday, Allie and I both had the day off of work and were bored. We went exploring and found the Woody Guthrie Center, a Dust Bowl-era museum near Guthrie Green Park.

Right by the museum was Bar 46. It was one of the most fun places to get drinks on a hot summer day.

Club Majestic

124 N Boston Ave, Tulsa, OK 74103
Phone: (918) 584-9494

Another club in the Art District in Tulsa! Club Majestic is one of the top places to go out in Tulsa if you are ready for some dancing.

Two different bars are in Club Majestic. I went to the Mezzanine Level Bar to find some obscure liquors that are not carried on their main level bar.
