Perhaps the hottest night spot in town, WSKY Lounge celebrates cigars, whiskey and jazz. Located in the historic capital of OKC’s jazz community - Deep Deuce, WSKY is a trip back in time. It has the feel of a 30s-style jazz, cigar and whiskey bar. In fact, the name WSKY pays homage to radio stations of yesteryear.
WSKY is housed in a two-story building at 228 NE 2 in the Deep Deuce District. The building opened as the M&M Hotel in 1924, one of the first all-black hotels to open in the city in an era of segregation. The building was renamed the Littlepage Hotel in 1935, and over the years it became known as the headquarters for the Oklahoma City Blue Devils jazz band, and as lodging for African American legends and hosted jazz greats Charlie Christian, Duke Ellington and Count Basie, the Oklahoma City Blue Devils, crooner Nat King Cole, boxer Joe Louis and baseball legend Jackie Robinson.
The vibe is upscale yet relaxed, with Classic jazz – live jazz every Monday - filling the room. Bartenders craft classic cocktails just a few feet away from OKC’s only walk-in cigar humidor. The humidor features 50 cigar selections on a regular rotation. A handcrafted bar displays 400 spirits and 200 varieties of whiskey.
In addition to a full flight of appetizers the lounge features great entrees including the Wsky Slider – a House Made Patty with Smoked Cheddar, Candied Bacon, Fried Onion Strings and Honey Bourbon Sauce. Another great choice is the French Lucy – a house-made patty stuffed with Swiss cheese, topped with Guinness caramelized onions and mushrooms with roasted garlic aioli. If you love Mac and Cheese – they feature five distinct versions - traditional, white, fire, Lefty’s and bbq.
WSKY is located 228 NE 2nd Street in downtown OKC. The lounge limits the number of customers to available seating and is open 7 days a week from 3pm to 2 am. For directions and more information call 405-606-7171 or visit wskylounge.com.
