Gruene Hall is Texas' oldest dance hall and was where many of the state's legendary country artists played early in their careers(Willie Nelson and George Strait are the two best-known). Traditional country acts play here on a regular basis, and the place can get packed at times.

There is live music seven days a week, and you'll always find someone on the large dance floor. They have a music calendar on their web site.
The tables are long rows of picnic benches. It's easy to talk to people sitting near you. Mixed between younger folk and old timers, you'll find locals and lots of tourists wearing their brand new boots. By the end of the night, most people are exhausted and their boots are off because of the blisters from doing the jitterbug.
I've been there a few times, and what I did notice is that most people seem to be there to dance. In other words, when I accepted an invitation to dance, there wasn't any pressure afterwards to talk to him if I wasn't interested.
