The thing that struck me about Amy and Kevin Smith was their equal passion for food, music and art at Soul City Gastropub.
They reminded me of Tom Dittus back when he operated Blue Rose Café. I’m sure there have been others but probably not many.
“I like people to feel the love when they walk in the door,” Amy said recently as she, Kevin and I sat among a mountain of memorabilia, from Elvis Presley to Leon Russell and the Steve Pryor Band, among many others. “Art, music, fellowship and good food is what it’s all about.”
With a combination of great food, good drinks, and excellent original music, Soul City is an eclectic gastropub to get a Wabi-sabi fix and feed both your belly and spirit.
Chances are, when Kevin and Amy Smith first opened Soul City in September 2011, they didn’t expect it to grow into the business and gathering spot that it has become. What started out as an art studio and workshop has turned into one of Tulsa’s most eclectic and inviting gastropub-bar-music venues, and it’s all happened organically.
