We had our friends from England in this past June to visit with us for about a month, and we took them out and about to see various things within a 4-hour radius from Houston, actually 5 if you count our jaunt to New Orleans to introduce the English to Bourbon Street.
One of our mini-trips was to Austin, Round Rock actually, to visit with another couple we knew there and on the way over, travelling slowly, we stopped in for an evening at the Tavern on the Gruene, which is on the... campus I suppose you'd say, of the Gruene Homestead Inn.
A sort of upscale but typical country bar, there was a live band, dance floor with people taking advantage of it, good audio volume away from the stage to still allow conversation, and really good bar service, though there wasn't much in the way of waitstaff out on the floor (Tuesday evening). Still, a great time, and obviously a favorite place for local folks and vacationers alike to drop in, have a couple beers, tap your foot and maybe dance a bit, too. Very fun place.
