Dance, Twirl and Two-Step in San Antonio

There's a surprising variety of venues to find dancing in and around San Antonio, Texas. Of course, most visitors to Texas are looking to put on their boots and learn to two-step. In that case, you'll want to head straight to Cowboys Dancehall, where you'll find all the sexy cowboys and cowgirls dressed up in their western attire. With such a great big dance floor, it's perfectly okay if you don't catch on right away! 

For modern music and carefree dancing with no rules applied, head to the LGBT-friendly HEAT. This fantastic night club is the best place to dance your cares away. They have two bars and feature special shows throughout the week, so check out their website or Facebook for details. 

The Bonham, located downtown in a beautiful historic building has been around for decades and you'll see why. All walks of life, from young to old, find their way to the Bonham, where the music and dancing never seems to stop and takes place on multiple dance floors on three levels. 

The younger crowds like to visit Tabu or even The Brass Monkey, for that retro feel. No matter where you choose, you're likely to end up with sore feet and happy memories!
