Located in the heart of downtown, the Deep Deuce District is one of the most historically significant areas of Oklahoma City and now a key urban center for the metro.
First the history, as the Deep Deuce was the home for African-American culture in Oklahoma City for decades. The district was a regional hub for jazz music in the 40s and home to legends like Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Charlie Christian and Jimmy Rushing. Oklahoma City native and literary giant Ralph Ellison even wrote a tribute to the district in his poem entitled “Deep Second”.
Recently the district has seen remarkable investment and redevelopment. Today you can find great restaurants and much of the city’s urban housing developments, making it the center for urban living in OKC.
