Armadillo Palace

Home of the tipsy two-step, the Armadillo Palace is a nod to everything we like to love about Texas.

Whether you’re drawn to the live music, the smoky smell of the barbeque, or a glimpse of the twelve-foot tall glittering armadillo that guards the place, it’s not a spot you want to miss. Mounted longhorns, vintage ranch regalia and faded tales of the Old West line the walls from bull head to boot toe, while leather saddle stools encircle the three-sided bar that anchors the dance floor. A hotspot for celebrations ranging from the Big 12 to the Big Day, the Armadillo Palace welcomes patrons and parties of every kind. So – pool sharks, history buffs, boozehounds and boot-scooters – grab your partners and head on down to Houston’s dedicated home for live Texas swing and shenanigans.
