Our Story

The Funky Door Bistro & Wine Room was born out of the desire to give West Texas a unique dining experience and offer an escape out of the ordinary — bringing together our love of wine and cuisine from around the world, fine art, live music and extraordinary hospitality.


Dr. Carl Britton and wife Carrie Britton are the proud owners of The Funky Door. They are constantly working and traveling to accommodate for Lubbock's ever-changing fine dining and wine. The Brittons have five sons, one daughter, three daughters-in-law, one son-in-law and eight grandchildren. It is very important to Carl and Carrie that their family be incorporated as much as possible into the restaurant, in fact their goal since building the new Funky Door, is to build one location for each of their six children. 


Traveling has always been one of the Brittons favorite family activities. Now, the family enjoys traveling and dishing out unique entrees and ideas to elevate the experience guests have at The Funky Door. They are passionate about bringing exceptionally fresh menu ideas to the restaurant.
