We were visiting family and was told this was a landmark and a decent place to dance, even learn how to 2 step and do Western swing.
Well, we went on the night that Dale Watson was performing. The place was absolutely packed.
Our group of 4 traveling to Austin for the first time discovered the fun of riding scooters all over the city. We were recommended by a stranger to go to this place was so we rode our scooters 35 minutes to visit and enjoy this...More
We were visiting Austin and we were advised to try this staple. It took 35 minutes on scooters for 4 of us to get there. While parking our Birds the owner started yelling at us in the parking lot that she didn't want "those pieces...More
I have never been spoken to as rudely as the "bouncer" spoke to me. I was there for a private date event with a fraternity, and I showed an old woman (probably 75-80 years old) sitting at the front my ID so she could verify...More
You have got to be kidding me. Dance lessons consisted of some gal who did not understand how you use a Mike, but gave a 30 minute monologue that was indecipherable and incoherent. And, the crowd was as unresponsive as a dead steer. Food, in...More

Food not good. Small sitting area. Back area is for dancing and other music. Live Music in front till 8pm, only. Old and dirty restaurant. Museum is full of memorabilia, much of it is not maintained or updated. Hamburger to be safe, if eating. Has...More
Overall a very fun experience. There was a dance lesson from 8-9. We got there around 8:30 and there was more instruction than dancing, which would have been frustrating for me. BUT, if you need the instruction, is nice. Super friendly atmosphere. Dancers of all...More
Hi, I will be in Austin this next weekend with my husband. We like to dance and took dance lessons for a few years...we can do a VERY basic two step, so a refresher lesson would be good. The places I see recommended for two stepping are The Broken Spoke, Continental Club and The White Horse. Do these sound right? Anywhere else you would recommend in addition or instead? Thanks!

Music venues with kids (2 Replies)
My husband and I and our 11 and 15-year old kids will be visiting Austin for the first time June 20-27 -- we love live music (why we're coming!) Any advice about bars/clubs where they'll admit kids with parents even in the evening? I've heard Antone's, Stubbs and the Broken Spoke -- any others you'd recommend? Thanks!

Broken Spoke: Taxis avilable at end of night? (4 Replies)
I'll go to Austin in a few months and I want to hear some real country music at "Broken Spoke" (just music, no dancing) on the night I arrive. I will be alone and I'm a little worried about getting back to my hotel (airport area) after the show. Can I get a taxi easily outside Broken Spoke? Is that area dangerous at night? Thanks for your help!
