Summit Club Opens Newly Renovated Penthouse

Luxury is alive and well in downtown Tulsa.
The Summit Club, a private city club located on the 30th, 31st and 32nd floors of the Bank of America Center, 15 W. Sixth St., reopened its newly renovated Penthouse at the Summit to members Nov. 20.
The more than $1 million renovation saw the 32nd floor of the building completely gutted and rebuilt in 15 weeks, updating the level’s floor plan and finishes.
The 6,800-SF floor includes the 76-seat main dining room, as well as two private dining spaces — the Vista, which seats eight and overlooks the BOK Center, and the Wine Room, which seats 14 and looks northeast over downtown.
The floor also features a new game room, complete with three flat-screen TVs, and a humidor with cigar lockers, a billiards table and a negative-pressure ventilation system that allows the room’s doors to open and close without leaking smoke into the main room.
Several walls in the dining room and the Wine Room are lined with automatically climate-controlled wine cases. Additional features are an updated outdoor balcony and a granite-topped bar.
The dining rooms feature dark-stained oak floors. Solid alder paneling, manufactured by Southern Millwork Inc., 521 S. Troost Ave., covers the walls. The specially designed floating ceiling mimics the flow of water.
Design on the project was handled by CCI, an Irving, Texas-based firm specializing in club design.
Flintco Senior Project Manager John Van de Bogart said keeping the 30th and 31st floors open during construction presented a challenge to crews. In order install upgraded plumbing, for example, crews had to work nights on the 31st floor, careful not to make a mess.
The building’s 31st floor hosts the club’s lunch buffet, with seating for 80, and five private dining rooms, while the 30th floor contains the ballroom, which seats 200, and three private dining rooms.
Founded in 1967, the Summit Club has more than 1,300 members.
