Find your niche! Whether you need a place to study, a place to sit and have lunch, or just a cool hangout spot – Denton has something that will suit all your moods. Here are a few places that would be great for you to check out:

1. J&J’s Pizza:
J&J’s pizza is an amazing place with a great atmosphere for local college students. It’s the perfect place to meet up wit friends after class or to have solo lunch after a long day. What makes this place even more exciting is that there’s an underground stage in the pizza shop’s basement where music concerts are held, so you have a lunch spot and a hangout spot all in one. Come enjoy a slice of your favorite pizza 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. every Monday-Saturday on 118 W. Oak St.

2. Jupiter House:
Denton college students consider Jupiter House one of the best coffee shops on the Square and a local favorite. At Jupiter House, you can enjoy warm coffee with a Costa Rican blend and delicious pastries in a nice environment. Jupiter House can busy at times, so it’s not the best place for studying. However, it’s a good place to chill with friends and unwind for a little bit. Give Jupiter House a try any time between 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. on 106 N. Locust St.

3. Dan’s Silverleaf:
Denton is very known for its love for music and creating many local music talents. If you are a music lover or just want to find a place to relax and listen to tunes, Dan’s Silverleaf is the place to be. Dan’s Silverleaf has roadhouse-like set up with a casual atmosphere and a great bar for anyone 21 and over to enjoy. If you would like to check out some of Denton’s local artists, come to Dan’s Silverleaf on 103 Industrial St.

4. Andy’s Bar:
If you are looking for a more lively music experience, Andy’s Bar may be the place for you. Andy’s Bar has a party-like atmosphere, and it is a good place for college kids to let go and have fun. Patrons get the chance to enjoy the Andy’s great basement bar and music events upstairs. Also, you can play pool with locals in the basement and make new friends.

5. Zera’ Coffee Co.:
This is a great, yet very underrated coffee shop in Denton. Not many college students are aware of this shop, but it is amazing when you discover it. Zera’s Coffee Company is perfect for laidback study sessions and some relaxation time. Zera’s has an assortment of coffee, tea, soda, and food options that are vegan friendly with sugar-free alternatives. Also, the coffee shop is partially a furniture store that has different furniture pieces spread throughout the coffee shop, so customers can purchase accessories with their coffee. You can stop by Zera’s Coffee Co. Monday through Saturday on 420 McKinney St. #104.
