Fodor's Expert Review Cain's Ballroom
This celebrated, world-famous concert venue is an icon of music history, widely considered the birthplace of Western swing, which Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys called home during the 1930s. Today, it remains a small, vibrant, live-performance venue, hosting internationally known artists while still nurturing local, homegrown talent. Built in 1924, the building's signature architectural element is a spring-loaded dance floor constructed of maple laid in a concentric, "log cabin" style. Most concerts here are not seated events. The venue can accommodate a standing audience of 1,800.
