Some of the most rapid growth in Tulsa is happening in the entertainment districts. Bars feature serious handcrafted cocktails, music venues stay busy with local and regional talent and the destination restaurants keep multiplying. One area that has truly shown a resurgence is Downtown Tulsa, and that’s largely due to the addition of the Bank of Oklahoma Center, an arena that is ranked among the top in the United States and the world by tracking group Pollstar. Night owls flock to popular The Brady Arts District on the northern edge of downtown for live music and a wide range of lounges, clubs and eateries. Another bustling after-hours section is the Blue Dome District, a colorful enclave of clubs and restaurants that was named for a 1920s era Gulf Oil gas station with the unmistakable blue domed roof. Just southeast of downtown, sits the Cherry Street entertainment sector. More restaurants and bars fill storefronts in building from the 20s and 30s. Further south in the Brookside District, the young and hip find food, fun and fierce games of pool. A more sedate evening scene has developed in Broken Arrow’s Rose District. The quaint thoroughfare has become a destination for development, perfect for couples on date night who would rather enjoy a glass of wine and live jazz at Main Street Tavern than contend with traffic in the city.
