Dallas is well-known for its country music dance halls and saloons. For country line-dancers, it doesn’t get any better than this. But, where do you start? Our team at Huffines has been exploring Dallas’ options for decades. Here are just a few of our favorite places to go line dancing in Dallas:
When it comes to classic country dancing experiences, Cowboys Dancehall is an obvious choice.
Live music, plenty of drink specials, two-step lessons and more — you name it. It’s the number one choice for country line dancing in Dallas on Yelp. The Cowboys Dancehall has a constantly updated schedule of live music and entertainment. They even have a special birthday package for that special someone and their friends. If you’re trying to get some line dancing in this Friday or Saturday, look no further than this gem.
Honky-tonk-style, line dancing? Check. Live music every day of the week with no cover charge? Check. One of the best burgers you’ll ever have in Dallas? Check.
Adair’s Saloon has been open for over half a century and they’ve had time to perfect the honky-tonk experience since then. They have great deals and we guarantee you’ll see why we put this place high on our list. For a real country dive bar night, put on some dancing boots and head over to Adair’s.
If you want a throwback to the classic barn dance, try Contra Dancing. It’s housed in a Lutheran church and they host dances almost every Saturday.
The North Texas Traditional Dance Society organize these dances. The organization promotes traditional American folk dancing.
Guitars and Cadillacs
For a “Texas-size” dance floor, head on over to Guitars and Cadillacs. Dance lessons, free pool, games, a late-night kitchen, and cold beer — this country dance hall is the ultimate Dallas line-dancing destination.
Every Thursday is ladies’ night, and every night is country night. Get boot-scooting at Guitars and Cadillacs.
Double Wide is one of our more interesting choices. This dive bar does its best to look trashy — think toilets on the patio and drinks made with YooHoo and Tang.
But, if you’re looking for a country dance hall with attitude, Double Wide is the place to be. They have many live music acts during the week and the dancing is fresh out of the trailer park.
Pearl’s Dancehall & Saloon
For a historic dance hall, Pearl’s is the top of the game. The story is Buffalo Bill Cody opened Pearl’s in the late 1800s as a brothel. These days, it’s a top-rated country bar perfect for those trying to cut up a rug.
Open every Friday and Saturday, Pearl’s offers some of the best line dancing, two-step, and western swing music experiences in Dallas.
Dallas has a ton of opportunities to go line-dancing. From dive bars to dance halls, Dallas is a country music dancing capital of America. Take a drive, explore a bit, and have some fun!
