Gruene Hall, built in 1878, is Texas’ oldest continually operating and most famous dance hall. By design, not much has physically changed since the Hall was first built. The 6,000 square foot dance hall with a high pitched tin roof still has the original layout with side flaps for open air dancing, a bar in the front, a small lighted stage in the back and a huge outdoor garden.
- It's no surprise to us that writer/director Nora Ephron chose to set John Travolta's iconic dance scene from 1996's Michael in Gruene Hall, Texas' oldest continually operating dance hall!
