Back in 1903, the residents of Kendalia built Kendalia Halle so they’d have a place to throw a party on the weekends. More than 110 years later, the party is still going. Although, the good times kick into action roughly once a month. Kendalia Halle’s dances feature performances by true Texas originals like Dale Watson, Gary P. Nunn and other favorites.

They also serve up free barbecue tacos during the dances. Tacos, country music and beer — yes, please. If you interested in going to a Kendalia Halle dance, check the 2015 schedule first.

There are a few venues near Austin that still have an old Texas vibe, and the Old Coupland Inn and Dancehall is one of them. The building, which has been around for more than a century, has been a hardware store, a drugstore and even a newspaper at one point. Today, it’s the heart of the action in Coupland, Texas, operating as a dancehall, restaurant and bed and breakfast.

This is a popular stop on the Texas country music scene. Folks here love to dance, so bring your boots. And the food’s pretty dang good too, so bring your appetite.

The historic Albert Hall is off the beaten path for most tourists, so it’s often overlooked. It’s also not as active as it used to be, but if you’re looking for an authentic Hill Country dance hall, this is one of them. The 88-year-old dance hall is located in the heart of the old German farmlands of the Hill Country between Johnson City and Fredericksburg.
