From upscale to accessible, contemporary to classic, Oklahoma City’s Western Avenue district has something for everyone. This district is the perfect gateway for Oklahoma City’s diverse shopping and dining options, from local dives on Western Avenue to chic shops along Classen Curve.

Classen Curve, located at the northern edge of the Western Avenue district, contains some of OKC’s most fashionable shops. National retailers Sur La Table, lululemon athletica, Anthropologie and West Elm call the stretch of Western between Northwest Grand and Classen boulevards home. If local retail therapy is more your style, Balliets, Red Coyote Running & Fitness, On a Whim and Liberté provide good options. If you’re looking for a day of self-care, you can find everything from float spas to cycle studios in this upscale outdoor shopping area.

If your shopping tastes tend toward finding hidden gems, the Western Avenue district is also known as a destination for curated treasure hunting in one of its many antique shops. Guestroom Records, located at NW 36th Street and Western Ave., is ideal for audiophiles, offering new and old vinyl albums for your listening pleasure. And with several antique stores located along Western Avenue, you are sure to find something unique.

If sampling the foodie scene is more your style, then you’ve got plenty of options in the area. From nationally recognized chains like Zoe’s Kitchen and Hopdoddy to local favorites like Tucker’s Onion Burgers, RePUBlic Gastropub, Café 501, and Osteria, you’re certain to find the perfect place for dinner with friends. If you prefer late nights, be sure to check out VZD’s Restaurant & Bar, The Drum Room, 51st Street Speakeasy, Sipango, Cock of the Walk or Flip’s.
