Houston’s 10 Best Honky-Tonks

4. MASONES
If you’re willing to make the drive out to the Cypress area, you’ll find one of the more underrated country joints in town residing out there. Masones has quickly established itself as one of the area’s pre-eminent honky-tonks, thanks to a country calendar that features the likes of Mark Chesnutt, Bri Bagwell and Doug Stone. The venue is spacious, two bars keep the lines moving and live country music every weekend keeps the dance floor going all night. (11133 Huffmeister, Cypress, masonessaloon.com)

3. REDNECK COUNTRY CLUB
Right down to the name itself, Redneck Country Club is a quintessential honky-tonk. Live country music from the likes of Gary P. Nunn, Tracy Byrd and Cody Canada & the Departed – as well as an array of local acts – keeps the dance floor going every Tuesday through Saturday night. Grab a little dinner as well before you hit the dance floor; Redneck CC serves up some mean brisket mac n’ cheese. (11110 W. Airport Blvd., Stafford, theredneckcountryclub.com)

2. MO’S PLACE
You want some of the best in live country music? Make the drive to Katy, because Mo’s has it in spades, including Josh Abbott Band on August 13. Hell, Hollywood star Billy Bob Thornton and his Boxmasters are playing the following night! While it’s a bit of a trek for non-Katy residents, Mo’s is the ideal setting for those who like their honky-tonks legit. No joke, last time I was there, I got to witness a bar fight and everything. (21940 Kingsland, Katy, mosplacekaty.com)

1. FIREHOUSE SALOON
A lot of local joints showcase the best and brightest on the Texas country scene, but perhaps no place better than Firehouse Saloon. Among the multitude of beer signs and cowboy boots hanging from the ceiling, first-rate acts like Zack Walther Band, Darrell Goldman, Josh Fuller and Mario Flores will pass through this month. The dance floor is spacious and the crowd is lively, which makes for a great night of honky-tonking. (5930 Southwest Fwy., fireshousesaloon.com)
