Dance Hall

Dance Hall

Gilley's Dance Hall will generally be open from dusk (6pm - 8pm) to dawn (2am - 4am) with a live DJ whenever there isn't a live band on stage. Whether it's the latest Texas two-step, line dancing, country waltz or any flat-footed glide that works well in cowboy boots, Gilley's has the ideal music and dance hall to accommodate all comers.

Regular folk will enjoy the nightclub scene as the live DJ spins tunes from rock to blues, modern and traditional country, and even a little hip hop club music when there aren't too many cowboy hats in the saloon.

DANSING KARAOKE

EVERY TUESDAY & WED 8:00pm

Every Tuesday at 8pm, or earlier if the mood strikes us right, the Dance Hall stage will feature the best (and funniest) voices of our Saloon customers wishing to grab the microphone and belt out a tune.

Sing along or simply enjoy the sounds and sights, as we make sure all your favorites are on the song list, and keep the entertainment lively each Tuesday and Wednesday.
