    Named for Wyatt Tate Brady, a shoe salesman who opened one of Tulsa's first mercantile stores at the turn of the 20th century, this is one of the oldest areas in the city, comprising historic performance venues like Cain's Ballroom and Ole Lady on the Brady (Brady Theater), but which has now evolved into a informal creative hub for eclectic restaurants, specialty art galleries, boutique shopping, high-energy nightlife, and live entertainment in a largely reclaimed urban environment.

    Historic Brookside is a laid-back, easy-to-navigate collection of unique restaurants, art studios and galleries, boutiques, and entertainment and nightlife venues, woven among specialty services, churches, and residences. Once a settlement area for the Creek Nation displaced from Alabama in 1834, it became home to Brookside Drug a century later. By the 1940s new residential and commercial development sprouted—elegant homes, churches, businesses, and wholesome entertainment—and these characteristics have endured. Some of the Streamline-style art-deco buildings survive, including the City Veterinary Hospital and KJRH-TV (formerly the Brookside Broadcast Center). Others have been retrofitted for new uses: the former Brook Theater is now The Brook restaurant and bar; Dunwell Cleaners, a family business for four generations, is now a popular sushi restaurant; and Holmes Elemenary School is now the Brookside Center.

    This celebrated, world-famous concert venue is an icon of music history, widely considered the birthplace of Western swing, which Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys called home during the 1930s. Today, it remains a small, vibrant, live-performance venue, hosting internationally known artists while still nurturing local, homegrown talent. Built in 1924, the building's signature architectural element is a spring-loaded dance floor constructed of maple laid in a concentric, "log cabin" style. Most concerts here are not seated events. The venue can accommodate a standing audience of 1,800.

    Step into one of only five museums in the United States to display a unique combination of historical home, art collections, and gardens. The mansion is a 72-room 1927 Italian Renaissance villa, originally called Villa Philbrook, built by Tulsa oil baron Waite Phillips and his wife Genevieve as a place for their children, who were ages 16 and 10 at the time, to entertain friends. It's a fine setting for the collections of European, American, Native American, and Asian antiquities, plus modern and contemporary art and design. The gardens cover 23 acres of formal and informal plantings. On the second Saturday of every month admission is free, and there are family-friendly art activities, tours, and scavenger hunts.
