Oklahoma City's Best Date Bars
THE PUMP BAR
Walk by the roll-up service bay doors to a question mark-shaped bar while classic cult cinema plays on flatscreens overhead. Choose from 16 local and specialty beers on tap, over 50 domestic and import craft bottles, and whiskeys made by Southerners or Scotsmen whose names you can’t pronounce. If you’re feeling frugal, grab a can of PBR and a shot of something stiff for five bucks. Head on out to the sprawling 9,000 sq ft. patio area to settle in with a Tiki cocktail around a roaring gas fire pit and watch a grindhouse movie on the wall. Slide around back to the gaming area to make new friends over a game of cornhole. Celebrate victory, defeat, or whatever with a visit to the food truck for fresh and affordable eats outside the culinary norm.
