When you walk into Guyutes, it reads bar. The low-lit dining room is bound by cinder-block walls adorned with Phish posters and populated by tabletops depicting classic record-album covers and rock artists including the Rolling Stones, Jimmy Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. The bar and a cage full of booze are the two most prominent fixtures. The rooftop bar has a long, ample bar — the kind you might find in downtown Austin, Texas. The whole place exuberates an offbeat, quirky vibe you might not find too many other places in Oklahoma. The "Phishhead" Chefs implement a lot of tastes, colors, and Phish references onto the menu, including the Catphish Wontons, which are filled with poached catfish and cream cheese with a sweet chili oil.

PACKARD'S NEW AMERICAN KITCHEN
We love this place! Packard's is located in the historic Packard Building, which was restored from the original Packard car dealership. This restaurant features locally-sourced American cuisine with home-made breads and pastas. The atmosphere is illuminated with lots of natural light and a clean, modern decor. The rooftop is where the magic really comes alive with italian lights draping above the crowd and the Oklahoma City skyline in the background.
Address: 201 Northwest 10th St

O Bar is an upscale, swanky rooftop bar located in the boutique Ambassador Hotel. It attracts an older, formal crowd and the cocktails cost a pretty penny. However, it may be worth it to grab one drink and take in one of the best views of downtown Oklahoma City, then head to a spot where you can let your hair down.
Address: 1200 North Walker Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73103
OKLAHOMA CITY MUSEUM OF ART
Art After 5 on Thursdays from 5-9pm is the best time to visit the Oklahoma City Museum Of Art. Grab your friends or invite your date to take in wonderful views of the city, sip cocktails, and listen (or dance!) to live music. $5 admission to the art galleries and access to their rooftop. In the handful of times I attended, the rooftop becomes packed by the end of the night, so you should anticipate a festive atmosphere.
Address: 415 Couch Dr, Oklahoma City, OK 73102
