Looking out amongst the attorneys, politicians, and local residents who frequent this neighborhood hangout, the average guest might miss the historical significance of the Deep Deuce Grill. If you listen closely, you might hear the echoes of musicians from the distant past. Long before the restaurant and residential develop- ments, Deep Deuce reflected a very different time in our nation’s history.
Originally dubbed Deep Second, the Deep Deuce was settled during the Land Run in 1889 by the first 200 African-Americans to enter what is now Oklahoma City. The bustling neighborhood became home to two of America’s most famous jazz legends, Jimmy Rushing and Charlie Christian; as well as to famous author Ralph Ellison. Deep Deuce quickly evolved into a place of respite for renowned musicians traveling throughout the Midwest to play music.
The Deep Deuce Grill is the place to be for happy hour before an event, or dinner and drinks late night. Deep Deuce loves Thunder basketball and offers a free limousine shuttle to and from all Thunder home games. They also feature live music on their fantastic outdoor patio during the spring, summer, and early fall months; bringing the sounds of jazz and blues back to the neighborhood. Come relax with friends next to their open fire-pit, order a round of drinks, and become part of the Deep Deuce family.
