(Cushing, Oklahoma)  The BuckHorn Bar located in downtown Cushing at 122 W. Broadway has been a local watering hole for many years.  It’s seen several owners, and is now under the ownership of Steve Jr. and Lucinda Walker.  Steve is the son of Steve Walker Sr., who recently retired from the “Horn” and handed the reins over to his son last year. 

  Since acquiring the BuckHorn, Steve Jr. and his wife Lucinda have made several changes at the local pub.  The inside of the structure is freshly painted, Liquor by the drink is now available to patrons and the Walkers commissioned a new bar area to be installed to meet the needs of serving the libations.   A modern “internet juke box” has been installed, new flat screen TVs and security cameras within the establishment are also new to the iconic BuckHorn Bar.  The Walkers have stepped up the function of the back deck area by adding a Drink Shack and a stage area to house outdoor music venues, weather permitting as well.  To check out what is on the music venue schedule for this summer at the BuckHorn Bar, go to their facebook page at:


  However, some things remain – pool is still a hot game and there are tournaments available for avid pool players to join in on each week – just ask for information at the bar or call 918-225-5413 for more information.  And in true tiger pride tradition … Cushing alumni classmates gather each Memorial Day weekend to relive their glory days and make new memories each year!

Shuffleboard tournaments still take place each Wednesday at 7 pm on what shuffleboard players consider an iconic shuffleboard table that bears the label of professional shuffleboard player Bill Melton, that has long been a part of the BuckHorn Bar.
