Plenty of parking, quick ticket check, and lots of open space. This is a very historic venue with iconic posters hanging all around the room. The bar had limited liquor choices (no Bombay gin, no Seagrams), but the drinks were still good. Friendly staff, ample...More

Use any excuse to go there. Possibly the coolest place in Tulsa to see any music. Lots of beers available too.

Went with another couple to see Post Modern Jukebox and it was fantastic! VERY limited seating, so be prepared. Bar was not three deep and drinks were reasonably priced. Bathrooms were clean and convenient as well. I've been to other events at Cain's but this...More
