Nearly a century old, The Pioneer Building has lived many lives in Downtown Lubbock. This historic building is an architectural marvel and has now been restored to its original purpose- a luxury hotel. 

This boutique hotel is home to 10 themed rooms paying homage to Lubbock’s notable features. Placed in the heart of downtown, you will find yourself entrapped in the thick of Lubbock’s culture, including world-class cuisine a few steps away. 

The only keyless entry accommodation in the city that does not require a front-desk check-in, the Pioneer Pocket Hotel offers a luxury experience for an affordable price. Upon arrival, use your mobile device to complete the check-in process, and spend your first evening in town indulging in the charm of the Pioneer. 

Start with Drinks at The Brewery LBK

After a day of travel, the convenience of having two of Hub City’s favorite food & drink destinations in your hotel lobby can’t be beaten.

Named the No. 1 Brewpub in the Nation by USA Today, there are world-class pours at your fingertips. With views of Downtown and the charming red brick roads, The Brewery LBK sits on the corner of Broadway and Avenue K. A short elevator ride from the hotel, make plans to get a taste of the brewery’s success with a beer tasting

Not a fan of beer? No worries! The craft cocktail menu couldn’t be better. Start the Lubbock Chilton Trail with the brewery’s grapefruit twist or enjoy a nightcap after dinner with one of the city’s best Espresso Martinis. 

Make Dinner Reservations at The West Table

One of several local restaurants owned and operated by the West family, The West Table brings New American cuisine with global influences to Lubbock.

This farm-to-fork venture serves an ever-evolving menu emphasizing seasonality, sustainability, and exclusivity, creating a dining experience that is equal parts exotic and familiar. 

While the menu changes daily, the website offers an idea of what to expect during your visit. From appetizers like Blistered Shishito Peppers and Crispy Goat Cheese Croquettes to mains like the mouthwatering Vietnamese Marinated Bistro Steak and Fried Rice, you can’t go wrong with any item on the menu. Be sure to order the easily shareable Stuffed Sopapillas for dessert!

We hope you enjoy your stay in the heart of Hub City! For more tips on planning a trip, check out the 5 Best Ways to Experience Downtown Lubbock and share your memories on social media using #LiveLoveLubbock.
