The Deep Deuce Pub Crawl

Kayla Coffey and Anna Farha from Localites OKC; Taylor Lawrence and Tabbi Burwell from Visit OKC; and Uncovering Oklahoma team up on a pub crawl of the Deep Deuce District to show that the area is more than just apartments by visiting its unique bars and restaurants. In this crawl, we visit Urban Johnnies, Anchor Down, Aloft Hotel’s WXYZ Bar, Stag Lounge, and the Deep Deuce Grill. Not only do we learn about each place, but we get history lessons about cocktails and the district.

If you don’t have time to watch the entire pub crawl, the video has been broken down into individual segments as well.

The idea for Urban Johnnie came around in early 2013. While Johnnie’s Charcoal Broiler has been an Oklahoma Staple for more than 40 years, owner Rick Haynes wanted to create an updated concept that would please the modern citizen in the Deep Deuce District.
