From the outside you don't see it.. a dusty parking lot, an old stucco building. You even might drive past it twice if you've never been here.. But step inside and you sense the history... This place is worn out. Not from neglect, but from all the great times we have here! For decades traveling bands have played here for people that love live music. Its more than a bar. Its a piece of Texas Music History.
When you've had your first Riley's Bloody Mary, tried The Sunday Steak & Bake and seen a few of the great Basin Bands perform here on a weekend, you will begin to understand what Rileys means to West Texas and Live Music in the Permian Basin. This is where local bands make a name for themselves. A lot of great bands from all over the US and Texas have been through here. For over 30 years Riley's Bar and Grill in Midland, Texas has been the epicenter of live music in West Texas. Riley's is the first, the original and still the best. We have a lot of history to share and more good times ahead. Stay tuned!
