In the early 1900's communities gathered on Friday and Saturday nights at their local dance halls. Later in the 1930s and 40s these dance halls transformed into Honky Tonks. These Dance Halls and Honky Tonks helped shape American society and history with such legends as Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, Hank Williams, Sr., Earnest Tubb and Patsy Kline. Many years later with Bakersfield and the Outlaw movement, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Paycheck, Buck Owens and Marty Robinson all made their mark on what is music in our country. Now it is up to the new generation of troubadours, artists and fans to keep this unique since of belonging alive.
A Dance Hall or Honky Tonk is where you go to see your friends, have a beer or two, shoot some pool and show off for the opposite sex, maybe even dance a bit. The Texas Tavern is the only authentic Honky Tonk Dance Hall in Cypress, Texas. Ask any local and they will tell you that The Texas Tavern is their Neighborhood bar, it is part of the community. It is where you find your friends and some of the best names on the Texas Music Road today. When you walk into the Texas Tavern you are always welcomed by the friendly smiling staff of Top Hand Bartenders and some of the most attractive waitresses in the biz. So step into an open setting and let the dim lights, thick smoke and good country music bring you back to Texas Tradition. So come one out, and let's do some Honky Tonken!
