It depends on what you are doing in this area. During the day, there are some cute unique shops and cafes. You must be careful when the sun goes down. It tends to get a little dangerous. There are plenty of night clubs available.

The Depot District is home to a wide variety of some of the best art and entertainment venues, restaurants, wineries and bars that Lubbock has to offer. The Buddy Holly Museum and Walk of Fame celebrates the West Texas music scene and are certainly worth the inexpensive admission. The Cactus Theater is another local staple which showcases local musical talent... More

It is a good place to just walk around and see all the neat places on the Depot district, or spend an evening and visit some of the places for food or entertainment.

It's about the only place to go if you're in Lubbock. Here you can park your car and enjoy the nightlife. A pretty good spot for dinner is Triple J's. Usually sound pretty good live entertainment can be found here. From rock to country, check out the piano bar, it's a good one

This is an area of town that is usually hopping at night due to the restaurants and drinking establishments in the area. There is plenty of free parking and everything is nearby. It gets really busy on Friday and Saturday nights.

Best part of my trip, except the time spent with my wife and daughter. Triple J restaurant was absolutely amazing. I will definitely go back for their steaks and drafts. Buddy Holly Museum and Wall of Stars was also worth the inexpensive admission. My wife and daughter had no idea who Buddy Holly was, but now appreciate his music and... More

Friday, Saturday hot spots. Triple J Brew Pub with hand-crafted beers. Take it to go and purchase a Growler, much better than canned beer, and the brewery is open to view. Live acoustic, local, players playing professionals in a bustling environment. Request taken...tip the player! Local art galleries. Check out the Tornado Gallery across the street, and bars and pubs... More

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
