People Come From All Over To Visit This One Special Restaurant In Oklahoma
There’s no shortage of great restaurants in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but if you’re looking for something truly special, you’ll want to head to this restaurant that was once a bank on the cutting edge of modern convenience.
The Vault is an unexpected gem in the Sooner State. It's located at 620 S. Cincinnati Ave., Tulsa, OK 74103. If you love retro 1950s decor, you'll want to visit this place soon.
When this auto bank was originally completed in 1959, it was the largest of its kind in the United States, with six drive-thru lanes. While drive-thru banking is everyday practice nowadays, back then it was mind-blowing to think that you could conduct banking business from the convenience of your car.
Today, this historic space is the most unique restaurant in the city. It's retained every last bit of its mid-century modern charm.
Floor-to-ceiling windows let in tons of light, and provide excellent views.
The art work on the walls and period furniture complete the retro decor.
The original vault is even still here!
The Tom-Tom Room is available for larger parties, and in this conference-style room, you'll feel like you're on the set of Mad Men. Back in its banking heyday, this room is said to have hosted more than 350 meetings every year.
The sleek, gorgeous, retro style of this restaurant is just the beginning - the food is incredible, too. You'll find a dozen delicious lunches, all for just $8...
...a dinner menu with everything from juicy filets to vegetarian choices...
...and some of Tulsa's best brunch offerings.
You'll want to leave plenty of room for dessert, because this place also offers freshly-baked treats right out of the oven.
Try a tasty cocktail before or after your meal. Go old-school with a whiskey sour, or order a more modern mix like The Banker's Ex-Wife, which includes Svedka Vodka, orgeat, lemon juice, and seltzer.
This place is bustling! Reservations are recommended, especially on weekends.
The Vault is open seven days a week. Visit Monday through Thursday starting at 11 a.m.; Saturday for dinner from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. for dinner, and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for brunch.
