Whether you’re in town to visit the Dallas Museum of Art, stroll through the Botanical Garden, or just have a grand old time on the dance floor, I’ll tell you where to go at the end of your day for country tunes and dancing.

Check out my list of the best country bars in Dallas!

Cowboys Red River | Dancehall & Saloon

10310 Technology Blvd W, Dallas, TX 75220
Phone: (214) 352-1796
Visit Website

Cowboys Red River Dancehall & Saloon, located near the Luxury Event Center, is a legendary destination for honky-tonk lovers in Dallas.

This vibrant, fun-loving establishment embodies the true spirit of Texas, with unmistakable sounds of twangy guitars and Two-Step nights on Thursdays.

Cowboys is undoubtedly one of the most fun places to go out in Dallas, and if you get there before the dance floor is packed, treat yourself to a game of pool, an ice-cold beer, or even a dance lesson!

Billy Bob’s Texas

2520 Rodeo Plaza, Fort Worth, TX 76164
Phone: (817) 624-7117
Visit Website

Located in Fort Worth near the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame, Billy Bob’s Texas is a highly reviewed live country music spot that boasts the title of the “World’s Largest Honky Tonk.”

If you’re in the mood for electric live performances from both established country stars and up-and-coming artists, I highly recommend swinging by this iconic bar.

While there, you’d be remiss not to try out the bull riding!

Just make sure you’ve let your chicken fried steak or triple burger settle in your stomach before giving that a whirl.

Electric Cowboy Lewisville

1165 S Stemmons Fwy #130, Lewisville, TX 75067
Phone: (972) 436-8519
Visit Website

Electric Cowboy is a chain of country clubs around Texas, and I love the one in Lewisville, close to Fox Creek Greenbelt Park.

If you’re wondering where to get a drink with a sprawling dance floor, great country music hits blasting through the speakers, and affordable drink specials, this western-themed nightclub is it!

Sometimes the mixed drink specials are so low that it seems way too good to be true, promoting a truly fun and wild night out with friends.

Double Wide Bar

3510 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75226
Phone: (469) 872-0191
Visit Website

Double Wide Bar, by the Exposition Plaza, is another one of the most fun places to get drinks in Dallas due to its welcoming atmosphere, extensive beer and great cocktail list, and excellent country music selection from both live music performances and DJ sets.

I love going to Double Wide Bar on the weekend and ordering the Yoohoo Yeehaw, which, as the bar describes it, is a “white trash” version of a White Russian cocktail.

The Hurritang, Twisted Tang, and Freedom 75 cocktails are also party favorites among my friends.

Finally, I appreciate the nice patio area in the back when I want to get a breather.

Adair’s Saloon

2624 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75226
Phone: (214) 939-9900
Visit Website

Adair’s Saloon, across the highway from the Deep Ellum Urban Gardens, is a live music venue and one of the best country bars in Dallas due to its friendly dive bar feel.

The bartenders are always so welcoming and charismatic, making you feel like you’re in the right place upon entering.

Plus, they have great food as well.

I think Adair’s has one of the best cheeseburgers in the area, and I love munching on one before playing shuffleboard or dancing the night away to honky tonk hits.

White Elephant Saloon

106 E Exchange Ave, Fort Worth, TX 76102
Phone: (817) 624-8273
Visit Website

Located by the John Wayne Museum in Fort Worth, White Elephant Saloon is one of the most riveting and high-energy country bars, known for its walls and ceilings that display a range of old-timey cowboy hats.

And it’s not just the hats that are old-timey; the bar itself began circa the 19th century, so the Wild West decor isn’t corny but appropriate and fitting.

Performers are honored to have a show here, so the energy is always vibrant and positive, and the acts are full of talent!

Grab a beer and a “love burger,” and have a great time at White Elephant.

Longhorn Ballroom

216 Corinth St, Dallas, TX 75207
Phone: (214) 272-8346
Visit Website

Longhorn Ballroom is an inviting, super fun country music bar and venue in the Cedars area by the South Side Ballroom.

Longhorn offers a great sound system, western-themed memorabilia, and an excellent party environment.

It’s a fantastic place to go if you like dancing to country music on a big dance floor but don’t like it when the dance floor is overloaded and crowded.

There’s always tons of space to get your two-step on!

Southern Junction Live

5574 TX-276, Royse City, TX 75189
Phone: (972) 771-2418
Visit Website

Part-steakhouse, part-country bar, Southern Junction Live is an invigorating place to be on the weekends, near The Pearl at Sabine Creek.

I love going to Southern Junction early to be able to relax and enjoy a steak and some tasty beer before hitting the dance floor later in the evening.

On Fridays, if you get there before 7:00 pm, you can enjoy a 2-4-1 steak special, which is a perfect way to spend an evening with your significant other or a close group of friends.

Round-Up Saloon

3912 Cedar Springs Rd, Dallas, TX 75219
Phone: (214) 522-9611
Visit Website

Located in the Perry Heights area near Turtle Creek Park, Round-Up Saloon is one of the best western-themed gay bars in the area.

I love going here to perfect my line-dancing with lessons and then ruin my line-dancing all over again with their tequila cocktails!

In addition to the dance floor, they also have fun karaoke nights and drag show performances – what more could you ask for?

Please drink responsibly, be fully accountable with your alcohol consumption, and show others respect.

I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.

In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
