When you plan your road trip to Sugar Land, don’t forget that when the lights go out, the excitement ramps up! After you’ve been to the museums, walked the trails in the park, and delighted in the ambiance of the community, take some time to discover the sweet night life Sugar Land has to offer! This is definitely the place where you can spend an entire weekend—night times included! 

Everyone has their own idea of what makes up a great nighttime scene. Whether it’s a guy group, a family, or some ladies on the town, we can all agree that we like to eat, drink and be merry. How we accomplish that, though, varies from person to person. Here are some of our top choices. Check out our other guides for even more ideas!

Vino & Vinyl offers a fun vibe, great food and rocking music!

Vino & Vinyl—Mimosa flight?! Yes, please! With exotic offerings like octopus tacos, or mainstream offerings like a bacon and brie burger, stop by and enjoy the coolest vibes, where local artists have their works on display, the wall is lined with records for sale and the DJ is in the corner playing a lively blend of familiar and obscure music. Oldies, classics, jams…keep the mood lively. On weekend evenings, reservations are a good idea.  V&V is a culinary-driven restaurant with a focus on small production wines and craft beers, just like the supper clubs of the 1930s. Vino & Vinyl offers a variety of gluten-free food, and the menu indicates vegetarian, dairy-free and nut-free choices. 


Bar Louie—This gastrobar serves chef-inspired food and imaginative drinks in a comfortable atmosphere. Don’t let the name fool you. It may be a bar, yet the food is restaurant quality. The menu features flatbreads, salads, craft burgers, sandwiches, main plates like southern fried chicken, voodoo pasta, fish and chips, seared salmon, mac and cheese and a surprisingly plentiful kid’s menu. You’ll be surprised at the variety of drinks, and Thursdays are Girls Night Out specials! Tuesdays feature their famous $5 craft burger special. 


The Rustic Brush is where you can bring out your crafty side! Paint all sorts of artistic wooden items and décor, either in open sessions, or book a private mini party! It’s a BYOB place, so you can liven this gathering up as much as you like! Rustic Brush is open till 10 p.m.

Pennison’s Sports Pub—Billed as Sugar Land’s oldest bar, Pennison’s has 20+ flat screen TVs featuring the NFL Package and Comcast SportsNet. Don’t be mistaken; this is a true sports bar. They don’t serve full meals and can even be considered a bona fide hole in the wall. Different nights feature themes including dart night, poker night, water pong night and karaoke night. They have live music, pool tournaments, video games and bar food, but no big meals.


Gridiron Bar and Grill offers UFC, boxing, football, baseball, soccer, trivia, poker, Singo Bingo, karaoke, comedy, open MIC and live DJs. In an interesting twist, they specialize in Thai food and culture! Crawfish specials, when in season, are all-you-can eat on Sundays.

With so many outdoor areas for eating, sitting and talking, you can enjoy the fresh air while you have fun. Many restaurants have outdoor dining, and Sugar Land Town Square always has something going on. Check the schedule so you don’t miss anything!
