Oklahoma City becomes a bustling town in the spring and summertime, replete with limitless dating ideas. The dating experts at Ambiance Matchmaking have picked their top 7 favorite events and venues for creating the perfect date. Take your pick and start planning!


1. The Powerhouse + Farmer’s Public Market

Located in the Downtown Farmers Market, Powerhouse has exploded in popularity with the locals and sparked a resurgence at the Farmer’s Market. They offer a killer Chile Pork Verde, along with handcrafted cocktails, wine, local craft beers and roasted coffee. On Saturdays, they have a made from scratch brunch and drink specials from noon to 3pm. Then meander over to the Farmers Market, happening every Saturday from 9am until 2 pm, where you'll find locally sourced produce, meats, honey, baked goods, and more.


2. Sunday Twilight Concert Series

Enjoy summer even more with the Annual Sunday Twilight Concert Series. Information about the upcoming season will be available soon, so stay tuned!


3. Art After 5

Enjoy a late-night art gallery experience at the Oklahoma City Museum Of Art every Thursday after 5pm for $5! Experience live local music on the rooftop with the best views of downtown OKC and a cash bar on the Roof Terrace as long as the weather is great. Films and yoga classes are also offered.


4. Bricktown Boat Ride

There is something romantic about taking a boat ride along the water, akin to the Venice canals (okay–maybe not THAT romantic). Experience the sights and sounds of Bricktown from a unique perspective, floating down the Bricktown Canal, while points of interests are narrated along the way. Then head for a nightcap at one of Bricktown's many bars and pubs.


5. Bleu Garten Food Truck Park

Modeling their ambiance after the cleanest and entertaining bier gartens in America, they give patrons an outdoor dining experience that is completely unique compared to anywhere else in Oklahoma. Its open-air dining includes lawn games, a fire pit, full-service bar, and a rotating schedule of food trucks.


6. Boathouse District

The Boathouse District is a water sport lover's paradise! Choose from kayaking, canoeing, rowing, sailing, rafting, or stand up paddle boarding along the Oklahoma River! 


7. First Friday Gallery Art Walk

Each First Friday of the month, The historic Paseo Arts District offers special themed exhibits, refreshments, and guest artists. Dozens of galleries, three restaurants and a handful of shops stand in distinctive Spanish Mission Revival style buildings, all within walking distance. The walk starts on Friday at 6pm and lasts until 10pm, rain or shine. Some galleries offer lite refreshments and two food trucks will be available. When hunger strikes, grab a patio seat at Picasso Cafe or Paseo Grill. Paseo Grill, one of our Partner Restaurants, offers a patio over-looking the beautiful Spanish villa-style art galleries while savoring a specialty martini.
