Northeast Oklahoma is a lively and engaged region. It’s full of artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, business leaders, politicians, activists, and families working together toward a dynamic vision of not only what a region can be but what a region should be.


Entertainment Districts

Blue Dome
Located in the heart of downtown, this vibrant district features bars and restaurants, a bowling alley, music venues, art studios and retail stores, including the The Boxyard, a shopping area constructed of shipping containers. It’s also ground zero for many special events, like Tulsa Food Truck Festival, Tulsa Tough, district-wide St. Patrick’s Day Celebrations, and a Mardi Gras parade.

SoBo (South Boston)
Quietly tucked in the neighborhood of Maple Ridge, this unique district is home to upscale fashion boutiques, gritty music venues, and a nationally renowned BBQ joint as well as a notable brewery tap room and coffee shop.

East Village
Affectionately referred to as “the sunny side of downtown” for its geographical location and sunny disposition, this is an area on the rise. It boasts a popular cocktail lounge, CrossFit gym, a bohemian-style pizzeria, and plays host to several special events, including MOJOFest.

 

Shopping

Utica Square
A favorite shopping destination for families and the chic, this open-air mall boasts specialty boutiques, notable retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as high-end restaurants.

Brookside
This stretch of eclectic shopping, dining, and nightlife can be found in the heart of Midtown running north and south along Peoria Avenue. It also boasts a number of notable specialty grocers, including Whole Food and Trader Joe’s.

Cherry Street
Cherry Street is not a real street, rather, the nickname for a mile-long stretch of trendy bars, restaurants, and fashion retailers along 15th Street. It’s also home to one of Tulsa’s most popular Farmer’s Markets, Saturdays spring through fall.

Woodland Hills Mall
Located in south Tulsa, the mall offers more than a million square feet of retail heaven with 165-plus stores, 80 of which are not found anywhere else in Tulsa.

Surrounding Communities
Broken Arrow is home to the bustling Rose District which is full of local shops and restaurants, and Jenks historic Main Street includes a variety of boutiques and antique stores.


Dining 

From classic American fare to innovative fusions and ethnic traditions, Tulsa offers a unique dining scene that can compete with any large city. Tulsa’s restaurant scene is true to the city’s grassroots spirit — which means local is king. Local restauranteurs helped create a flourishing local restaurant scene which now attracts James Beard Award winning chefs to Tulsa. Neighborhoods like downtown Tulsa, Brookside, Cherry Street, are riddled with locally-owned eateries and bars.

Broken Arrow’s Rose District and Jenks Riverwalk offer a multitude of dining options, and Owasso’s Main Street is quickly becoming a destination for local eateries.

Craft Brewing
Craft brewing has become a wildly popular cottage industry across the country. And Tulsa has become a hotbed for award-winning, handcrafted pours. Many of our locally-owned breweries are gaining national attention for their creative recipes and innovative brewing processes.


Transportation

It’s easy to see why Tulsa has the nation’s second-fastest commute for a big city, at 20 minutes on average. For those who would rather ditch their cars, Tulsa Transit bus service provides curb-to-curb transportation. Aero, the city’s new BRT, connects riders and commuters to destinations along the vibrant Peoria corridor. Ridesharing services also make getting around on the go a breeze. Whether you’re headed to work, school, or a night out with friends, we have options.
