The prime location at 34th and Peoria in Tulsa, Okla., has changed hands a few times over the years. The newest owners, including locally known executive chef, Trevor Tack, had a different take after getting their hands on the building. When asked what the “R” stands for in the name it doesn’t stand for one of the owner’s initials like one might assume; it simply means its “Our Bar & Grill” as in, every Tulsan’s.  

“We’ve all grown up here [Tulsa],” says co-owner, Bill Grant. “We’ve spent 30 years (or more) in this area. This is home and this place is ‘our' bar. We felt like it was about time to do it right.”

R Bar & Grill has been officially opened since December 31, 2011, and has created quite a buzz around town. They attribute their success first to their crowd, second to their location and third to their deck – the greatest deck in town!

One thing you might not know, however, is how important the community is to R Bar & Grill. Grant led the United Way effort back in 2008 as campaign chairman and helped raise $24MM for the Tulsa community and then served again in 2009 as chairman of the board. He says he wants to continue his philanthropic efforts with his current company. With a commercial lending background, Grant decided to use his talents to give back to the community. It’s evident how much the local community means to him which reflects his company’s atmosphere.

“It’s a place that feels like home, people just have a great time here,” Grant said.

R Bar and Grill chooses to bank at Arvest because of Arvest’s friendliness, convenience, client focus and always trying to go the extra mile for customers.
