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.

Recently visited Gruene, Texas for the first time, and my favorite spot I stumbled upon was this bar/dance hall/concert venue/overall great place. The walls are covered with pictures of country artists & singers & celebrities who've played their, or visited. Live music, good beer, and their patrons are friendly and welcoming. Loved it!
I can say I have been to "the oldest continually run dance hall in Texas", however there wasn't any dancing! It's a cash only system, so be prepared for that, and for the love...If you go in the Texas Summer, ladies WEAR A SUNDRESS. There is no AC, so it was HOT, especially when it started filling up with people. It's neat to see live music. Benches around the edges of the stage, open area where people can either dance or gather to watch the show, picnic tables outside, and no public bathroom, just port-a-potties.
Oldest dance hall in Texas. Definitely a must see venue. I always enjoy my visit and look forward to going back
The Oldest Dance Hall in Texas is the funnest place on Earth. Especially the Gospel Brunch. Food is by the Griss Mill so it is over the top delicious. The music is amazing and so inspiring, God is AMAZING!
Wow! We got here late, about 10:30 pm... but the music was awesome and everybody on the dance floor looked like a pro. My sister commented that it was so good she felt like she was in a movie, turns out "Micheal" was filmed here. This place has tons of history. We were blown away by our short experience and it will be something we remember forever.
