The Green Door was an all ages venue located in Oklahoma City, from 2001-2006.
The Green Door was founded by Reggy and Lucy Wheat in May 2001 with a $5,000 loan intended for new windows and air conditioning repairs at their home.
Originally located at 8911 N. Western in Oklahoma City, the Green Door was a scene-building venue, hosting touring alternative rock and punk bands and pairing them with local bands.
In August 2003, the Green Door moved to 329 E. Sheridan in Bricktown, moving from a 240 capacity club to a 500+ capacity venue. Mounting debt and low attendance forced the Wheats to close the club during the final weekend of January 27, 28 & 29 in 2006.
Reggy Wheat continues to independently book and promote occasional concerts in Oklahoma City.
Several bands recorded live albums at the Green Door, including:
• Drag the River – at the Green Door O.K.C.
• The Stellas – Live From CBGB & Green Door
