Local and Live Music

It’s your night out and live music is a must.  Local, Live, and Nearby, the top three things that help to make a successful enjoyable evening in your neighborhood.

One of the many things Texas is known for is its music, and it just doesn’t get any better than local talent.  Just think of the pride we hold for all the artists that have made it big and they began right here in our Lone Star state.

You may just catch that rising star in your own backyard!

Keep it local

Historic Downtown McKinney is home to several establishments that host live entertainment on a weekly basis.  Whether you are looking for that intimate setting for dinner with soothing melodies in the background or ready to party, this little square has it all.

It is easy to find live music Thursday thru Sunday nights in downtown McKinney.  You will discover a variety of artists and venues to choose between.  Besides the individual websites, there are sites designed to assist you in the locality you desire.

So Many Choices

It’s a Friday evening and you just need a break after work.  Maybe something to nibble and sip with light hearted tunes to set the pace for winding down.

Wine and Music

Lone Star Wine Cellars offers a medley of choices from Charcuterie boards to Pizza or Cheesecake.  The perfect accompaniment to their premium wine selections, where every Triple R Ranch Wine has a label with a story!  You will find the best in local and live talent in an intimate setting here every Friday thru Sunday.


If you are looking for an entree and lively atmosphere,  The Celt offers full menus in a Pub environment along with a live music line up.  There is also the Pub itself that brings that great meeting place for conversation, a game of pool as well as local entertainment.

Weekends and Festivals

You’ve worked all week and the weekend has finally arrived.  It’s time to play, chill and spend time with friends and family.  It’s date night with your main squeeze.  Historic Downtown McKinney has the what and where to make your plans and music is at the heart of it all.

Dinner and Lounge

When dining at Rick’s Chophouse, check out their Lounge inside the adjacent Grand Hotel where you can settle in to leather couches and enjoy soothing music by the baby grand.  This upscale establishment offers live music every Thursday thru Sunday along with craft cocktails and a full menu.

Let’s get Loud

If it’s time to get loud and be somebody, then Cadillac Pizza is the place you want to be.  Excellent pizza and choice cocktails as well as top notch rock and roll on weekend nights.  It’s loud and it’s high energy all the way!


And always keep in mind those wonderful annual festivals, full of lights, music and fun!  Just think, Arts in Bloom, Oktoberfest, and Home for the Holidays, just to name a few.  2021 promises a bright future of fun!
