Gruene Hall was built in 1878 and is Texas’ oldest continually operating and most famous dance hall. The 6,000 square foot dance hall hasn’t changed much with its high pitched tin roof. The roof still has the original layout with side flaps for open air dancing, a bar in the front, a small lighted 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 is offering several exciting events in March. Check them out!
