Gruene Hall, built in 1878, is Texas’ oldest continually operating and Texas’ famous dance hall. By design, not much has physically changed since the Hall was first built. The 6,000 square foot dance hall still has the original layout with side flaps for open air dancing, a bar in the front, a stage in the back and a huge outdoor garden. Advertisement signs from the 1930s and ‘40s still hang in the old hall and around the stage. Gruene Hall has been internationally recognized as a major venue for up and coming artists, as well as for established artists. The movie “Michael” with John Travolta filmed a magical dance scene here and Gruene Hall hosted George Strait in the fall of 2016 for a special press announcement. Bring a camera because you will never know what celebrity you might see here.
