Gruene Hall – Texas’ Oldest Dance Hall

Gruene Hall – Texas’ Oldest Dance Hall

Built in the 1880s, Gruene Hall (pronounced “Green”) is known for bringing in great country musicians. Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett. They all come here.

There is live music seven days a week, and you’ll always find someone on the large dance floor. They have a music calendar on their web site.

The tables are long rows of picnic benches. It’s easy to talk to people sitting near you. Mixed between younger folk and old timers, you’ll find locals and lots of tourists wearing their brand new boots. By the end of the night, most people are exhausted and their boots are off because of the blisters from doing the jitterbug.
