The Lounge, aka Bull in the Alley
Drinks are beautifully crafted at the impressive square bar, which is the focal point of the Lounge. Even standard drinks, like an old-fashioned, have a sophisticated and classic presentation. If you’re a martini fan, order it tableside and add a blue cheese-stuffed olive.

Watch the sunset with a pretty drink to end the day at the Rooftop in Broken Arrow. Try the Rooftop Rose martini with Stoli vodka, raspberry liqueur, cranberry and pineapple. Or have a taste of the Gentleman’s Cup, a heartier cocktail of Gentleman Jack, St. Germain, bitters and ginger beer.
