About Us

Gruene Hall, built in 1878, is Texas' oldest continually operating and most famous dance hall. By design, not much has physically changed since the Hall was first built. The 6,000 square foot dance hall with a high pitched tin roof still has the original layout with side flaps for open air dancing, a bar in the front, a small lighted stage in the back and a huge outdoor garden.

We greatly enjoyed The Gospel Brunch! The food was delicious We really loved singing along with Bret Graham. He played music we all know and love! We would have loved more! The New Soul Invaders were not quite as entertaining. The lead singer's microphone was uncomfortably loud, the songs were very repetitive and went a bit too long. We wanted to sing instead of listen to the lead singer talk. Just a suggestion, some sweets such as muffins, cake, or pie would have been very nice. Thanks for the mimosas!

Downright one of the coolest places I have visited in Texas. The live music is great and seeing a performer here is very intimate as the place isn't all that big. The history here is incredible. The outdoor section is a great place when the weather is nice. The barn is old and drafty so be dressed appropriately for weather. The sound system is great and the music is excellent. Its a must visit place with the old vibe that takes you back to the good old days.

This place is unbelievable, it's like stepping back in time, to what I have In my mind, what a local Texas dance hall and saloon would be like. Very simple decor, ice cold beer, all you friends, and great music. If you enjoy history, western lifestyle, or just something you won't find anywhere else, stop in. I promise you won't be disappointed.

So happy we stopped in here on our trip from SA to ATX. Such a cool little town, and this place was awesome. Big, white building right by the old historic water tower. Old, wood dance floor was awesome, and cute outdoor area for families. There was no admission fee and there was a great band playing. Parking was pretty easy, and it is not too far off the highway. Will definitely be stopping by again. Love it!
