The giant autobank (and recent parking lot) that was once going to be Plush Martini Lounge is now slated to be a new restaurant from the folks that brought you Elote.

Saw work being done in there today (as in there was actually someone inside working)... tearing out the stage that Plush had put in and some other whatnot.

Edit:  I wonder what the concept's going to be?

TW article:

http://www.tulsaworld.com/scene/article.aspx?subjectid=371&articleid=20120215_46_0_Theown736597

Libby Auld, owner of Elote Café in downtown Tulsa, said Wednesday she is planning to open a second restaurant, to be called The Vault, at 624 S. Cincinnati Ave.


“The building was constructed in 1958 and once was the largest auto bank in the nation,” Auld said Wednesday. “It’s all glass and concrete, a cool building. It has been vacant 20-plus years.”

Auld said The Vault, which will be open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, will feature traditional American fare, including some old favorites.

“We will have things like Green Goddess dressing, all the yummy stuff from the ‘60s,” she said.

Auld said she hopes to open the new restaurant in four to six months.

We have one themed on the back side of a building, one themed around a fictional mexican mobster and one themed on fat balding man gorging himself.

Stranger things have worked.

Actually, I've always thought utilizing a bank's old drive-thru tubes to deliver your fast-food burger would be pretty neat.
Unfortunately this autobank has individual little teller booths for each lane, so no tube delivery here.

It would work great for sliders, not so much for hub cap-sized burgers.

Don't get me wrong.  I love the building. Love that it is going to be occupied.  I was just pointing out that Banks and Bankers are not high on the list of "most popular institutions/people" as of late.
