The Deep Deuce District, located just north of Bricktown, was the heart of Oklahoma City’s African-American neighborhood in the 1920’s and 30’s, and during that time the district was known for its incredible jazz music. Music legends Jimmy Rushing and Charlie Christian both called Deep Deuce home, as did Ralph Ellison, the author of Invisible Man. Today, Deep Deuce is a popular urban housing location and has several neighborhood hangouts like STAG Lounge, a whiskey club offering more than 250 bottles of whiskey and almost 400 spirits. Other local favorites include Slaughter’s Hall, Urban Johnnie’s and Anchor Down, which is a gourmet corn dog eatery (yes, we said gourmet) located in a shipping container. Trust us, it is worth trying.
