Planning the Perfect GNO in DLBK

Downtown LBK • August 25, 2021

A night out in the Hub City is guaranteeing you a night like no other. 

You and your best gals can find yourself doing anything from reliving your college days and splurging on the best wine in West Texas, to tasting traditional tapas that transport you to the sensuous heart of Spain.

So, wherever the night takes you, follow this guide to guarantee you and your girlfriends have one of the best GNO in Downtown Lubbock.

First...Press Pause

As a woman, there’s not a doubt in anyone’s mind you’re out there conquering the world.

Whether it’s carpool lanes, shuttling little ones to sports games, or commanding the attention of everyone in the boardroom, there’s little time in between to pamper yourself, let alone nail down the schedules of all your girlfriends for a well-deserved (and long-awaited) girls’ night out. 

So, now that the night you’ve been waiting for is finally here, start it off with a fresh blow-out at Rouge Beauty Parlor

This quick shot of pampering to start off the evening will help you press pause on the workweek, and get yourself feeling confident for all the photos of memories you won’t want to forget. 

Pre-dinner Drinks and Bites

Taking a few moments to pick up where you last left off is one of the best things about having best friends. 

So, before you and the gals find yourself traveling down whatever road the night takes you on, grab a table at La Diosa Cellars where you can split traditional Spanish tapas and a bottle (or two) of wine before your night really kicks off. 

Live Entertainment

Between the deep rumble of diehard Red Raiders cascading throughout the city during football season, or the magnetic pull of live music and steady drink specials found only at The Blue Light, a night of live entertainment can rarely be beat. 

Luckily whatever kind of night you and the girls are in search of, Downtown Lubbock has just the place.

In the mood for a night of rich history and live music? Check out the Cactus Theater.

Looking for elegance, comedy, Broadway shows or maybe even a shot at being on The Price is Right? The Hub City’s newest addition to the entertainment scene, The Buddy Holly Hall, is where you and the gals will find it. 

Dinner and Heart-to Hearts

After catching a show, cheering on your favorite sports teams, or two-stepping with your best gals, wind down with a delicious dinner and cocktails made by some of the best culinary talents in West Texas. 

And if you’re in the mood for full bellies and heartfelt chats under the stars, we recommend one of Downtown Lubbock’s newest restaurants, The Midnight Shift, located inside the Cotton Court Hotel. 

Whether you’re just looking to unwind, or experience a night full of culture, entertainment and tastes you’ve never imagined, you and your girls can find it in the heart of Downtown Lubbock.
