You can't say you have been to Austin until you have done the Broken Spoke. Live music will have you swinging, even the star studded owner James white will sing you a tune. If you think you can't dance come on out on a Friday night and join a dance class. This is a great place to make friends and... 更多
I use to go every Thursday, Friday and Saturday every week and dance, dance dance. Things change. Got married, cover is high and and crowded daance floor but if you have never been you wouldn't know all of that so it's worth checking out.
When we got there we noticed they had line dancing lessons, but we didn't partake. But once the band started, someone came and snagged us onto the dance floor and we did some two stepping. Very nice employees and the band was great. I loved the fact that the owner walked around to each individual table and greeted each person... 更多
If you are in Texas you must go dancing and this is the place.We arrived early for the dance lessons. Instructor was fun and spunky. Nice to see so many young people there. Band was nonstop. They didn't even take a break! Food is available, but we had pecan whiskey. Get your dance shoes on and visit this place!!!
Whether you are there for the country-billy of Dale Watson, learning to two step, or just the chicken fried steak, this is a Texas bucket list!
We were there on a Tuesday night. Which I found out is more of a locals night and what they call cruisers night. There was constant dancing and just felt like a happy place. As to alcohol...well not to sure about that. But what a fun upbeat place to country dance or as one of the locals told me, as... 更多
I read that this was a family-friendly place, so we took our daughters (both middle school), and that was a mistake. If you're looking for an old-fashioned honky tonk with some rough talk about letting guys grab your butt and so forth while you're dancing, then it's a fun time, but my daughters were not so entertained, nor was I.... 更多
We visited to try an authentic Austin experience but were a little dismayed. This is a pretty run down spot and although they have dancing - the lights are so bright, it looks like it is quitting time! We had a group of girls - you almost need a couples thing to go here so you have your own dance... 更多
I want to give a balanced view of the Broken Spoke. We visited from the UK and wanted to experience an authentic Honky Tonk atmosphere with live music. The place is a dive, it doesn't advertise itself as anything else. The owners have probably not spent a penny on the place since it opened, 51 years ago, its basic but... 更多
