Wanting to ramp up the intensity? Let a personal trainer at the Lion’s Den Total Fitness show you how it’s done. Or join the running group—Runs for Funs—that kicks off from Craft & Social on Thursdays.
Enjoying Fine Dining & Fun Eats
Go out for a fine dining experience at Anson Eleven or Café Central, two of the highest rated restaurants in the region.
Tabla, Nishi Ramen, Fresco Juice & Fruit Bar, Pallets, Pho So, Mac's Place, Café Colon, and La Feria Grill are also close by. Try the Mexican Cottage for breakfast or grab some tacos and margaritas at 501 Bar and Bistro! Looking for American cuisine instead? Park Tavern is only half a mile away, ready to meet any craving from burgers to seafood!
And if you’re looking to dine in at THE 501, besides accessing restaurants through UBEReats, other great places are happy to deliver to your door like Los Jarrones, Valentina’s Restaurant, Virginia’s Gorditas, Gorditas Lerdo (we love our gorditas!), The Sushi Place, Li’s, Healthy Bite, Papa John’s, and many more—check out the menus at THE 501 leasing office (in D23).
We haven’t forgotten your furry friends! Every Wednesday from 3-10pm Tabla features their Pet Patio next to their firepits! Bring your canine friends to take advantage of their happy hour specials and puppy treats.
And for a late night snack on your way home from the festivities, you can count on The Pizza Joint, which is open until 3am on Friday and Saturday nights!
Reveling in the Night Life
Ready to grab a drink and have some fun? Run 0.2 miles over to Coko Loko for some Mexican Seafood Classics, and on Thursday nights, you can take the mike for some Karaoke night while enjoying great drink specials. If you can’t wait until Thursday for Karaoke, hop over to The Briar Patch on Tuesday night.
Swing over to Craft & Social on Thursday nights if you prefer a more cerebral banter and brew, where Geeks Who Drink Trivia Night starts at 8pm.
Don’t forget Open Mic Night at The Pizza Joint on Wednesdays before midnight for some comedy, poetry, pizza and beer.
Tap Bar & Restaurant features a selection of Mexican food, drinks, and dancing until 2am every night, with Live Jazz and Jam—bring your own instrument and jam out with the band—on Thursdays!
Check out the entertainment at Tricky Falls.
Bar hop and snack on excellent tapas at the Union Plaza district bars and restaurants on the weekends.
Savoring the Fine Arts & Local Flavor
Take advantage of the Art & Farmer’s Market at Union Plaza on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm. Stroll through the El Paso Museum of Art and El Paso Museum of History appreciating the rich story of our region. Step back in time and tour the Magoffin Home, a state historic site.
Walk over to San Jacinto Plaza to have a bite to eat at La Plazita Café, see the Los Lagartos art sculpture, splash in the water, or take on an opponent at a chess table.
Depending on the time of year, you will want to catch a Chihuahua’s baseball game at Southwest University Park, go listen to bands outdoors at Alfresco Fridays, watch our local artists create magic at Chalk the Block, partake in the daring Running of the Bulls, enjoy the Film Festival, the Symphony, or a Broadway show at The Plaza Theatre, or ice skate downtown at Winter Fest! Check out other events hosted at the Convention Center and the Abraham Chavez Theater, also under a mile away!
And find out about downtown El Paso’s Last Thursdays Gallery Crawl and Art Market, an art scene experience you will not forget!
