Broken Spoke

Southern/Down-HomeSouth Lamar and Barton Springs$10-$25

“Last of the True Texas Dancehalls and damn sure proud of it!” Thus declares Broken Spoke owner and dance floor greeter James M. White, who opened up the honky-tonk in 1964. Home to both the upper rungs of country music history (Bob Wills, Ernest Tubb, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson) and its local equivalent (Don Walser, Dale Watson, Kelly Willis, the Derailers), there’s no denying the structure stubbornly resisting the sky-high overdevelopment surrounding it on South Lamar. Serving chicken-fried steak, cold beer, and hardcore country almost every night, the Spoke’s swing and two-step lessons happen Wednesday through Saturday, 8:30-9:30pm.

3201 S. Lamar, 512/442-6189
