Default Country Bars/Honky Tonks/Dance Halls

My husband and I are visiting next week. We are country music people and were wanting a night out. Any recommendations would be appreciated. It can be small or large just as long as it plays country.

Our local country bar plays one country song for every 5 pop songs. So, we would like an actual country place.

Thanks

The Broken Spoke on S. Lamar
http://www.brokenspokeaustintx.com/ And as James (the owner) always says, "We ain't fancy, but we're damn sure country." I have a blast every time I go there. They have a huge wooden dance floor.

If you want a typical country and western club: Midnight Rodeo-They'll have a local artist playing on friday night, usually
Dallas Nightclub

If you want to experience more of a local music type place:
Broken Spoke-They'll have live music on Saturday night and dance lessons from 8-9, you can go earlier and eat good food, too. An Austin legend.
or if you feel like driving 45 minutes south, Gruene Hall in New Braunfels-Texas' oldest dance hall-great place to experience and the little town is cool, too.

I would go with the last two, but it all depends on the experience you want

Do you only want in Central Austin or outside of Austin? There are lots surrounding Austin that are very good too.

We went to Gruene hall on our last trip. On this trip we will most likely be more in Austin, but I would like to hear about surrounding areas for when we move there in a few months.
