In the beginning was an idea, a vision if you will, of a wonderful shopping experience. Painted Door opened its doors in September 1991, and recently celebrated 25 years of retail operation in Oklahoma City. Through the years I have continually changed the “Mix” with the times, but there has never been a change in commitment or philosophy. It is always our pleasure to provide you with a wonderful shopping experience – whether in store, or across the miles.
Painted Door is just a short walk from downtown hotels, event venues and attractions. It is located in Bricktown, an entertainment district, which is filled with restaurants, nightlife and entertainment options. From taking a cruise along the Bricktown Canal to catching an Oklahoma City Dodgers game at the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, Bricktown is a favorite destination for visitors and locals alike. Bricktown's two major family-friendly fun attractions, are Brickopolis which offers miniature golf, laser tag, arcade games and multiple dining options and HeyDay which offers 10 spacious bowling lanes, featuring awesome LED screens that make for an amazing audio-visual experience, a large patio facing the canal, outdoor TV’s, audio, a fire pit and shade structures. In addition to bowling and games, a large bar faces the canal and a full menu served for lunch and dinner.
North of Bricktown is the Deep Deuce historic neighborhood that consists of urban living and has several neighborhood hangouts like WSKY Lounge, a whiskey club offering more than 250 bottles of whiskey and almost 400 spirits. Other local favorites include Slaughter’s Hall, Urban Johnnie’s and Anchor Down, which is a gourmet corn dog eatery (yes, we said gourmet) located in a shipping container. Trust us it is worth trying.
South of Bricktown, located on the Oklahoma River, is OKC’s Boathouse District which is an exciting destination for anyone looking for outdoor adventure in Oklahoma City. The Boathouse District has a row of iconic boathouses along the river, the world-class Chesapeake Finish Line Tower, and RIVERSPORT Adventure Park which offers exciting outdoor activities including RIVERSPORT Rapids, a whitewater rafting and kayaking center. Athletes look forward to rowing or paddling on the district’s world-class 4000m race and training course, while families and visitors can get on the water in a kayak or stand up paddle board, take a bike ride on the 13+ miles of trails or enjoy RIVERSPORT Adventures. RIVERSPORT Adventures offers outdoor activities for all ages. Buy a pass and climb to the top of the SandRidge Sky Trail, slide down the 72-foot Sky Slide, step off the Rumble Drop or reach for the sky on the 700-foot SandRidge Sky Zip across the Oklahoma River. You’ll find whitewater rafting, kayaking and tubing at RIVERSPORT Rapids, plus climbing walls, bicycle pump tracks, and a youth zone for younger kids.
