When this storied honky-tonk opened 50 years ago, it was surrounded by farmland. Today, it’s shadowed by a 385-unit apartment complex where one-bedroom rates start at $1,300 a month. The dance hall has not lost its soul, though, thanks to weekly two-stepping lessons and regular acts from Austin musicians such as Dale Watson. Don’t miss a chance to walk through the museum—it’s just off the bar—where you can see pictures and paraphernalia from legendary acts like Willie Nelson and Bob Wills.
