Built during the oil boom in the 1920's by Maj. Gen. Patrik Hurley, The Hotel Ambassador first served as a stately and luxurious residence for wealthy oil barons awaiting completion of their Tulsa mansions.
Much to the delight of the hotel's patrons The Chalkboard was opened in the 70's in the grand Hotel Ambassador. Throughout the 70's and 80's the award winning restaurant, nestled in the lower level of the hotel, was truly more famous than the Ambassador name.
The original owner John Phillips vision was a rather simple New York feel, focusing on a blend of European Continental dishes displayed on the large chalkboards in the dining area. Over the years, The Chalkboard earned every dining award in Tulsa and was one of the most popular places to eat.
In addition to sharing history and a picturesque Uptown location with the Hotel Ambassador, The Chalkboard shares with it a unique elegance and dedication to unparalleled customer service. For the last 10 years the Chalkboard's owner, Max Doyle, has honed these traditions while infusing downtown with a renewed sense of life and style.
