“Great place with a variety of bars and entertainment!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is what I feel makes Lubbock a small city and not a town.

How often do you see this many fun bars in a town? EXACTLY!

A must-see for Lubbock!! :)

The Cactus Theater has live entertainment weekly and puts on a great show. They also host theatrical productions. There are many good restaurants and bars in the District from which to choose. (Mostly bars).

“The Depot District”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2009

The heart of downtown Lubbock is becoming a gallery, restaurant, live music mecca for the western half of the state.
Anchored by the Buddy Holly Museum which is in a former train depot--hence the name, the Depot District, this entertainment scene is the place to be in Lubbock.
The first Friday of the month you'll find the First Friday Art Trail where trolleys and your feet can take you to gallery after gallery. Often times you'll find libations and munchies at many of the art venues.
A new attraction to the Depot District is MacPherson Cellars which is pretty cool to have an in-town winery.
There's live music everywhere from folk to Celtic to blues to country to metal.
Several good restaurants round out the Depot District scene and of course, there's usually local live theatre nearby, too.
