Venue Spotlight: Four Bar K

Though Lubbock is increasingly becoming a regional hub for arts and culture, and the High Plains has gained notoriety for growing 80 percent of Texas’ wine grapes, the city still manages to stay true to its Western roots. One of the best ways to inject a little bit of that local flavor into your meeting or event is through the venue itself, and no place does that better than Kershner’s Four Bar K.

What is the history of Four Bar K?
In the early ‘90s, Chuck Kershner transformed a 6,500-square-foot building packed with history, into a venue that, since its inception, has been the perfect location for everything from receptions to reunions. In 2002, the original building was lost to a fire, but rose from the ashes one year later to become what it is today – a 13,000-square-foot event space with a basement-level dance floor. Packed with artifacts and unique rustic features, this venue is full of West Texas charm.

What makes Four Bar K unique?
To see the venue in a more casual setting, make plans to be there on Friday for lunch. Friday Lunch has been a long-standing tradition at Four Bar K, and even with the fire in 2002, they only missed serving one Friday. It’s something they are proud to continue today. Cost is $10 a person, and that will get you two trips through a buffet line to load up on barbecue and all the fixings, while you enjoy a variety of live music and complimentary beer.

Should you be looking for a way to add a little Texas flair to your event, the likes of which you can only find in Lubbock, consider booking it at Four Bar K.
