Broken Spoke

One of the last true Texas dance halls, the Broken Spoke is one of Austin’s must see "honky-tonk". Now situated in between new and shiny buildings, The Spoke looks a little out of place. It was there first though and is going to stay. Legendary dance floor, comfort food and cheap-ish drinks make this a destination for all ages. Visit “The Tourist Trap Room” to see photos and other memorabilia of all the famous names who have passed through and performed at this legendary dance hall.
