Over the last few weeks, we have touched on many of the things that make San Angelo such a unique and rewarding place to live. We gave a glance into the deep historical roots that made their mark on our town and embedded themselves into our present day. We also dug into our rich art culture and shared the many outlets offered to showcase the beauty built into our city’s core. Lastly, with summer here and many families joining our community, we jumped into the many local forms of recreation we proudly boast. With this post, we will highlight another element people often look for when they move to a new city – NightLife.
San Angelo has so much to offer for families, but we don’t want to forget about those of us that like to get out when the sun goes down. We don’t want to sound “cliché”, but millennials do make up a large part of any city’s population and going out is something that people, of all ages, enjoy. San Angelo is no different and although we might be smaller than some of our neighboring cities, we are big in our ability to provide something for everyone.
A quick search and click on Downtown San Angelo’s website will give you a great starting point for where you might go to have a truly amazing San Angelo night out. If a nice glass of wine while you relax and listen to live music is something you enjoy, we suggest you start out somewhere along the lines of The Black Swan Wine Bar or Blaine’s Pub. However, if a night of rock and roll is your thing, then definitely head on over to the one and only Deadhorse Lounge. And if you’re ready for a night of retro fun and just an all-around great time like you’ve never had, you’ve GOT to head over to The House of Fifi DuBois. We also have a good handful of traditional bar/pub establishments as well, Warehouse 150, SoCo Tap House and Fat Boss Pub are just a few. This recent post that was done by San Angelo Live actually provides a list of San Angelo Nightlife Events going on here over the summer.
Like any other nice sized town, we do have a varied selection of sports bars. We’ve not only got the well-known establishments like Buffalo Wild Wings, Twin Peaks, Hooters and Shenanigans, we also sport our own popular spots that are more along the lines of the “hometown” feel. The Titled Mug is a hot spot for those looking for a few laughs and to listen to a few good tunes, or even sing a few! Fiddlestrings Bar and Patio is another hot spot with pool, washers, corn hole, water volleyball & shuffleboard on site! Then, we, of course, have bars and grills if you want to eat while you play! Outside of your traditional chain restaurants like Chilis and Outback, we have our very own Concho Pearl, Zero One Alehouse and Twisted Root.
We also understand that the live music scenes are not for everyone, which is totally fine when you live in a town that has plenty to do by just getting outside. San Angelo also has a monthly event called the DSA & Cultural Arts District Downtown Stroll hosted every 3rd Thursday of each month. Open to the public, art, food, and fun line the streets of downtown San Angelo accompanied by the free trolley to take you wherever you’d like to go. No matter where you go, there is always something in San Angelo nightlife for people to enjoy.
You can also take a stroll down the Concho River after dark and experience it outside of the bustling of the day. Lighted walking trails, tons of fishing spots and life-sized games will surely entertain you and equal a great night. Head over to the LoneWolf Bridge or any number of our parks and enjoy the coolness that comes with the sun setting. Stress comes with relocation and without a break from the process, burn out will set in. Take a minute for yourself and enjoy your new surroundings. With work and the heat of these long summer days, a break from the norm and getting out at night is something well deserved. You have plenty to pick from, treat yourself!
