5 Legendary Date Night Ideas in Downtown Lubbock

• February 16, 2021

Lubbock is a West Texas gem exploding with both old and new school excitement sure to break up even the most monotonous of date nights.

Whether you’re a super romantic duo or a couple of lovey-dovey warriors, Downtown Lubbock has everything you need to make your next romantic evening perfect.

La Diosa

Lubbock’s own La Diosa Cellars gives every duo the opportunity to travel to Europe and indulge in their choice of authentic Spanish tapas de vegetarianas or tapas de carne.

With live music cascading through the night on Fridays and Saturdays, La Diosa effortlessly marries authentic and sultry Spanish cuisine with musical perfection to create a memorable and magical date night.

Brewery Crawl 

It seems as though a new brewery pops up in West Texas’ favorite city almost every week, but, seriously, who’s complaining? With so many new and delicious craft beers showcasing themselves in historic Downtown Lubbock, there’s no reason to pick just one. 

Not sure where to start? We suggest starting out at Triple J Chophouse and Brew for a top notch burger and beer combo before bundling up and heading north toward The Brewery LBK, Two Docs Brewing and more!

Even better? 

Lots of Downtown’s breweries have expanded with beautiful beer gardens, heated lamps, and pet-friendly accommodations. (Who said our furry loved ones don’t deserve a date night out, too?)

The Midnight Shift

Shake (or shift!) things up with a trendy cocktail at The Cotton Court Hotel’s in-house restaurant and bar, The Midnight Shift

As one of Downtown Lubbock’s newest premier happy hour destinations, The Midnight Shift is quickly making a name for itself with drinks like the West Texas Cloud (Hendricks Gin, Cocktail Essentials Mint Syrup, Lemon Juice) and the Guns Up Margarita. 

Are you more classic but your date is a little bit “classic with a twist”?

The Midnight Shift’s classic Chilton is sure to win any cocktail connoisseur over, while their Chilton Plus has your date covered.

Bad Axe Raider

Sometimes you just need to live life on the edge.

Bad Axe Raider lets you throw down with your loved one and show off your target practice skills. With over 30 different throwing items (saw blades, throwing knives, and even ninja stars), there’s no doubt your target skills will have your date declaring you the next modern-day Cupid!

Pioneer Pocket Hotel

What legendary date night list would be complete without a historic, high-end, hotel experience?

Sweep your significant other off their feet with sky-high views and one-of-a-kind suites right in the heart of the Hub City in Downtown Lubbock’s very own Pioneer Pocket Hotel

As a historic building dating all the way back to the 1920s, you might be surprised to learn that this hotel has transformed into a fully-automated space, but with no front desk that means no date night interruptions. (And we hear that’s a good thing!)

No matter the reason, a date night that breaks free from the norm is never a bad thing. 

Add in all the history and excitement that Downtown Lubbock has to offer and there’s no doubt your next date night will be one for the history books.
