Here’s why everyone is heading to Bricktown
Bricktown has always been a special part of Oklahoma City. With its cobbled streets, charming businesses, and walkability, it’s a place to create treasured moments and memories. Now, more than ever, Bricktown is a place you’ll want to bring your family and friends. Though some may reserve visits to the area for out-of-town guests, it’s become a place where OKC residents thrive with new restaurants, exciting entertainment, and a culture unique to our community.
“Being the Bricktown Manager is a very exciting role because no day is the same. With new developments and district growth, Bricktown continues to expand and reinvent itself year after year,” said Bricktown’s District Manager, Justin O’Neal.
In the past year, a lot has changed for the district. For a while, nightlife in Oklahoma City seemed to shift away from the area and into other areas of downtown, but the opportunities to enjoy an evening out of the house have grown exponentially in Bricktown recently. Thanks to the efforts of several dedicated community members and business owners, Bricktown is once again a hotspot for entertainment and enjoyment.
One of the leaders who is making positive improvements within the district is Chad Huntington, owner of the Bricktown Water Taxi.
Huntington has been in Bricktown leading the community for many years. Those that meet him know that he has a huge heart for the area. He wants people to come to Oklahoma City and enjoy their experience, just as much as he wants to ensure that our city is a great place for residents to live, work, and play.
In the past year, Huntington began a new initiative in collaboration with the Oklahoma Mural Syndicate, local artists, and supporters, known as Art Afloat OKC. His dream of hosting weekly mini-concerts on the Bricktown Water Taxis quickly became a reality. Every Thursday night, you can purchase tickets for $25/person, which includes two draft pours (or sodas) from Bricktown Brewery and a 45-minute concert session on the boat with a local musician or band.
