Located at 308 Main Street in downtown Bandera, Texas, this nightclub has hosted a number of local and national artists, including Robert Earl Keen, Willie Nelson, Charlie Robison, Johnny Bush, and Jay Hooker. The building was constructed in 1921 and opened as a social establishment called The Fox Hole. In the 1940s the dance hall became The Silver Dollar. In 1968 the venue was purchased by singer–songwriter, Arkey Juenke, who was born in nearby Gillespie County. Named one the top three honky-tonks in the state by Texas Highways magazine, the saloon has remained a popular live music venue for locals and tourists in the 2010s.
- Roger (Peter Fonda), Frank (Warren Oates), Alice (Loretta Swit) and Kelly (Lara Parker) are all invited to dinner at a rowdy, local nightclub where they can't help but notice all eyes are sinisterly on them!
