Texas Dance Halls

In Texas, where everything is larger than life, you’ll find a dance hall in just about any town or city you go to. The Lone Star state has been boot scootin’ in dance halls for more than a century and their origins are diverse, shaped by the state’s German, Polish, Czech, Tejano and African-American heritage.

If you live in one of our Texas communities, like Steiner Ranch and Reunion Ranch in Austin, or are looking for a new home in Houston or Austin, the dance hall experience shouldn’t be missed.

Dance Hall

In Austin

Little Longhorn Saloon has been a favorite on the honky-tonk country music scene for more than twenty years. Beer is chilled, happy hour happens six days a week, music is live and lively, and you never have to pay a cover to get in.

The Broken Spoke shines as an award winning, celebrity-attracting dance hall. Lauded as Best Honky-Tonk in Texas by Texas Highways magazine and Best Country Dance Hall in the Nation by Entertainment magazine, the Broken Spoke has attracted legendary football heroes, celebrities like Clint Eastwood, Robert Duval and Dolly Parton, and even the Queen of England’s entourage.

In Houston

Houston has enjoyed the presence of Wild West Houston for over three decades, and with a motto like Two-Steppin’ & Longneckin’, it’s easy to see why the hall is so popular. Visitors kick up their heels to the hottest country music, shoot pool, and enjoy beer and spirits, and a fun-loving crowd.

Big Texas Dance Hall & Saloon is actually two halls, Big Texas Clear Lake to the north and Big Texas Spring to the south.  Both have specials every night, concerts and events and dance lessons, most for free.

Neon Boots Dancehall and Saloon is located the historic venue once known as Esquire Ballroom, where well-known acts, such as Willie Nelson and Patsy Cline, filled the house from the 50s through the 90s. The new owners attract a diverse crowd with events throughout the week.
