Gruene Hall is a true Texas Legend and one that all music fans should definitely pay a visit too. I have had the pleasure of being part of the scene on many occasions over the past 30 plus years. I had the pleasure of kicking back a few cold ones with Jerry Jeff after meeting him at the trough in... More

Most reviews depict the hall very well. The history and vibe of the place is very good. Stopped on a Sunday afternoon, the hall was full, beer flowing, and good music playing.

The town Of Gruene has made itself into a homey tourist destination with antique stores, gift shops, clothing boutiques and its main attraction, Gruene Hall. The town boasts a free parking lot that could serve a small arena and it was nearly at capacity when we visited on a Saturday afternoon. Located between San Antonio and Austin, the hall serves...

Gruene Hall is the oldest dance hall in America. My wife and I went on a whim to see Jason Boland & the Stragglers one night and Rosanne Cash the next night. If you want to go honky tonkin the old fashioned way, this is the place. Gruene Hall consists of a stage in front, a bar in back and... More

Being the oldest dance hall in Texas got our attention. We visited the Hall one afternoon but it just didn't do it justice. Then we went there on a Thursday night and it felt like jumping back in time; a good time. Bo Porter was the entertainment and he was great. BUT; you must prepare yourself to be transformed into...

A great place to visit while in town. We attended a concert here and while there was a lot of people there it never seemed over crowded. The ladies restrooms inside were open and the line moved quick. The men had to use the portacans outside and my husband said there were no lights out there. Definitely going to start... More

Gruene Hall is just one of the many stops in this restored old west town. Wonderful history and live music every night. Check the calendar of upcoming groups and you could get a special treat. It is a great end to a relaxing day. Quaint little shops as you walk the street of the old town.

While I've been in Gruene Hall dozens of times, this weekend was my first BIG concert to attend there. I was unable to find similar details from previous posts so thought I would share my experience, in hopes of assisting future guests/concert goers. Doors opened @ 6pm and concert (opening act) comes on @ 7pm. People started lining up at... More

I was exploring the town and this was a must stop. Very historic and still operational. It is located near other shopping and sites so it was a nice park and walk kind of day. There is also historical markers explaining the sites including the history behind Gruene Hall

A terrific stop for every traveler to Gruene! As the oldest dance hall in Texas, the free visit during the day is worth the trip in the door. At night the live music is definitely worth the expense. Relax, enjoy a brew and some great music in this historic site!
