Country twerkin’ at Cowboys

Dance, Dance, Dance
Country Western, Swing, Latin y más

1. Cowboys Dancehall
Daily specials like college night and ladies night make Cowboys the place to see and be seen in San Antonio. The music is eclectic—from Top 40 to country—and the crowd is fun. You can’t go wrong with this Alamo City staple. 3030 NE Loop 410, (210) 646-9378,

2. Midnight Rodeo
With free dance lessons on Wednesdays and Saturdays, Midnight Rodeo offers one hell of a deal. The circular dance floor is lively, so try not to get run over by other couples. The only thing missing here is a mechanical bull. 12260 Nacogdoches, (210) 655-0040,

3. Wild West
Saddle up, cowboys and cowgirls, and get ready for a wild night at Wild West. Lot’s of two steppin’ and good fun at this high-class honkey-tonk venue. Their motto? “Wild West—A little wild, but civilized!” 21025 US 281 N, (210) 496-9453,

4. Arjon’s International Club
With more than 20 years in the business, this tried and true Latino dance establishment is a unique gem. They offer lessons on Sunday, and an excellent array of Tejano and Latino dance music Thursday through Sunday. 8736 Tesoro, (210) 804-1419,

5. Swing Nite at Sam’s Burger Joint
Every Monday at Sam’s Burger Joint, the San Antonio Swing Dance Association puts on a shindig for those who can Jitterbug and Charleston. For those who can’t, there are free lessons at 7 p.m. before the dance begins at 8:30 p.m. A mix of local and regional live bands set the tempo at this weekly event. 330 E Grayson, (210) 223-2830,

Dance clubs are few and far between in San Antonio, let alone clubs that allow minors. Here are a few that do.

1. Club Rio
Club Rio is one of the only true dance clubs in San Antonio that allows minors. Get ready for a full-on discotheque experience. Lots of Latin dance songs and a very diverse crowd. 13307 San Pedro, (210) 403-2582,

2. Club Empire
Rowdy, loud and perfect for college kids. Get down and dirty at one of the most popular clubs in San Antonio with appearances by 98.5 The Beat and select artists. With appeals like their “Twerk-It Thursday,” how could you not go? 6890 NW Loop 410, (210) 688-7000.

3. Joe’s Volcano
Crazy lights and Tiki themed decorations can be found in the center of the volcano, Joe’s Volcano that is.
