Amarillo might not seem like the kind of place to have a fun Friday night, but there are some great options that we love to take advantage of.

Here are 7 things people in Amarillo do for fun on Friday night.


Head Out To Midnight Rodeo or Guitars & Cadillacs For Some Dancing



Amarillo’s biggest western bars are definitely Midnight Rodeo and Guitars & Cadillacs. They both have great concerts, a big dance floor, and awesome drink specials. Whether you’re 18 or 48, there’s no better way to spend the evening than two-stepping.



Order a Pizza From 575



575 is one of Amarillo’s favorite pizza places. So if you’re in the mood for a night in, a 575 pizza is the perfect addition.



See A Movie At Hollywood 16



Hollywood 16 is located on the south side of Amarillo, making it a great location for both Amarillo and Canyon residents to catch a movie. They’ve always got the newest movies and occasionally show some classics.



Enjoy First Friday Art Walk



If it’s the first Friday of the month, people in Amarillo flock to the First Friday Art Walk at Sunset Center. You can enjoy a huge variety of local art, refreshments, and live music.



Hang With the Hipsters At The 806 or Palace Coffee



The 806 doesn’t even feel like Amarillo, so it’s a great place to escape and get your weekend started. They’ve got unique coffee creations, a variety of alcoholic beverages, food, and live entertainment throughout the month. Palace Coffee also stays open late on Fridays for live music and open mic nights.



Watch Some High School Sports



Friday nights in Amarillo change throughout the year from football to basketball to baseball. In the fall, everyone packs into the football stadium and in the spring, everyone enjoys the sun at the baseball field.



Try Out One of the New Restaurants



Amarillo is constantly getting new restaurants. Bubba’s and Freddy’s opened a few months ago, 1000 Degrees Pizzeria opened this week, and we’re looking forward to getting a Fuddruckers soon. Even if you’re not technically trying a brand new restaurant, we have such a big selection that there’s bound to be a spot you haven’t tried yet.
