Gilley's In Dallas - No Honky Tonkin' Anymore


Even though the name Gilley's does imply Dance hall, Honky Tonk and country music in general, the original Gilley's in Pasadena, Texas, was none the less founded by country singer Mickey Gilley and was the backdrop for the movie "Urban Cowboy," the new Dallas incarnation seized to be a Honky Tonk in 2011 "due to the high demand for private events" as their website puts it. The 92'000 square foot place now hosts pop, rock and hip-hop concerts and offers it's eight different rooms for private events.
