One of my favorite bars! Nightly live music, old Texas feel inside, lots of dancing and variety in music, best food truck outside ( I HIGHLY recommend the pulled pork burrito with everything)!

Visiting a cousin who brought me here after dinner. Apparently this is a mainstay of the 6th/7th Avenue happening scene. Even on a Tuesday night there was dancing and live music. Dance lessons at 8 (two step, Texas swing) and live music at 9. What you would expect from a bar (dim lighting, grungy bathrooms) but somethings you might not... More

My Austin based friend took me here after a day of riding around town. Perfect way to end the day. This place has everything you want in a Texas honky tonk. The bar is incredible and out back there is a fitting pool table and outdoor space that was relaxing. Unfortunately it was earlier in the evening so no live... More

I would think the only reason people that aren't local would come here is for the 2 Step lessons. It was very interactive and you were partnered with multiple people, yes strangers! Fun place to dance or watch people dance. Bar is a bar - dimly lit, old place.

We arrived at the white horse which was a very nice place, playing live bands of some local music which was pleasantly received. However we went outside to order food from the vendor outside and numerous errors really ruined the experience for us. The chap behind the counter couldn't really speak English very well (which is not the end of... More

We stumbled in there one evening and were swept off our feet by the honky tonk atmosphere, the superb and authentic music while watching folks dancing of pretty much all ages and walks of life and having some delicious beers. A memorable night, indeed!

Had a great night watching a good band play well and interact with the audience. Some great dancers too. Really enjoyable night.

Fun evening of dancing and people watching at the White Horse - great music and great dancers. It's as much fun to watch as it is to get out on the dance floor and Texas Two Step or Western Swing! If you want to have a quieter conversation, you can go outside and enjoy your beer.

Went here on a recommendation by staff at our hotel. What a fab place. It's a real bar with a pool table and a band playing. The band was fabulous and the vocals by the young lady were wonderful. The style was swing/country but not like you'd have thought. Loads of young and not so young people dancing (extremely well).... More
