Modern American dining up top, speakeasy jazz club below. Duet brought this new flavor combination to the Tulsa Arts District when it opened in the historic Archer Building in 2018, immediately installing itself as a twin pillar to the local music and dining scenes. How’s that for a Tulsa two-fer?
Upstairs, executive chef Nico Albert draws upon her Cherokee heritage—and many, many years of experience in the Tulsa restaurant industry—for a menu that playfully toggles between subtle sweet and spicy flavors that show up where you’d least expect. The torta ahogada, by the way, is a must.
Meanwhile downstairs music industry veteran Jeff Sloan keeps Duet stocked with talent each week, from local heroes to international jazz superstars. Lounge seating surrounds the stage making each performance intimate and rich in detail, whether you’re seated up near the action or ordering one of Duet’s bright, fruit-forward cocktails from the bar in the back. You can hear music down there every Wednesday through Saturday.
Reservations to the restaurant aren’t required but they are recommended.
