Whether in daytime or nighttime, If you are looking for some great food, pubs/brewery, galleries, dancing, live music, theaters or just some walk around area to take in some sites, then the Depot District near downtown Lubbock is the place you want to go. It has it all!!!

The Depot District is the host site for several events each year. The streets are blocked off so people can stroll the vendor booths and view attractions such as car & bike shows or on-stage music. The wide variety of restaurants and bars can keep you entertained for hours. Everybody has heard of Buddy Holly and this is where the... More

We occasionally take visitors to the Depot District to have a few drinks and enjoy some entertainment. It gets quite busy on the weekends and most times it is a fun place to be. It is not a large area so the choices are some what limited, but most folks should be able to find something that will suit them.

The Depot District as great shopping and bars and restaurants. You can get great exercise walking this area. You have Buddy Holly Center and his statue and West Texas Walk of Fame.

We went during the day and didn't see much activity. There was a movie theater highlighting an outdoor concert for later. There are a few bars that weren't too busy and a few restaurants that were busy with graduation crowds. There was nothing to bring me back to the area later on that night.

I cannot agree with other ratings. Have been there 4 times. If you are from out of town, maybe from a bigger or more international city, the depot districts sucks. sorry. Bar hopping is practically not possible. It is just a block of bar(s). There are some ok bars in Lubbock though but the depot district is not an attraction.

Spent a great half day shopping. The area seems to have an eclectic collection of shops including antiques, art, glass blowing etc. Weekends during summer offers a street fair type combination of fresh fruit and vegetables, plants, artisians and whatever. Numerous restaurants with one featuring a brewery. Of particular interest was the award winning McPherson Winery and tasting room. Our... More
