Old school dive / country music bar. Stopped in on a Monday night and the place was busy but not packed. Hung out for a couple of beers. Really enjoyed the band and watching people dance.

This is the best country bar I’ve been to in a long time. Stopped in on Tuesday for Cajun/Zydeco, and then the country band came out and was amazing. Old school country sound, and everyone was two stepping the night away.

The bouncer at this bar was very rude to us. In addition, the live country band was just ok and the bar smelled and was not very inviting. Plus, it is farther from Rainey and 6th street so we had to take a cab for...More

Ambience: quaint Texan club with a wide backyard offering enough space for band performances Drink: perennially crowded bar, but worth the trouble given the ambience inside.

To be honest first of all I was on a live music tour with Austin Detours and the venues were selected by them. It’s not all a bad idea as we were taken to 3 bars all over Austin. Unfortunately I do not like country...More

Had a great time with friends just people watching and enjoying the amazing live music. People two-stepping all around us. You order at the bar, you clean your own table and get some popcorn if you're hungry. Dive bar in a GOOD way!

Great place and very different from big city club or bar. The country Bands were great and lots of people dancing honky-tonk. Quick service in bar and great garden outside to cool down after some steps on the dance floor.

Maybe it was because we visited around Halloween.. but my friends and I heard no country music or saw no two-stepping. Disappointing, but otherwise an okay little bar with the basics

Dark, smelly and a small podium with dance floor that was used by the audience. Cheap drink, friendly staff and good music. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Didn't go to the restroom, terrible! The parking place of the white horse is very small so parking on...More
