How clever to use a long closed railroad station into an entertainment venue? Clever to the max! When passenger trains rolled in and out of Tulsa years ago, the Art Deco Depot welcomed ticket holders in the greatest of style! A great save!

Living in Kansas city area we love jazz and was really looking forward to seeing this and boy was it a disappointment. A few pictures even less instruments. 1 small entrance and a few pics in a very short hallway. You can see it all in 10 minutes. The only good thing was that it was free and on Tuesday... More

So many things happened here. I even departed on my first train trip from this building in the Fall of 1970. Beautiful building with a wonderful history.

Mostly contemporary and classic jazz but you may also hear blues, folk, big bands, bluegrass, western swing or a bassoon group practicing for their next gig. Tuesday night jam sessions for jazz and blues are free and very interesting. Other nights feature local, regional and national artist, check the web site for current events. Parking could be better so arrive... More
