This is one kick-ass honky-tonk – 40,000 sq ft of hot live music – attracting real cowboys from as far as Cheyenne. The Country Music Association called it the best country bar in America. If you’ve never experienced line dancing, then put on the boots, grab the Stetson and let loose.

Just north of the city limits, off I-25 (you’ll have to drive or cab it), the Grizzly is famous for bringing in huge industry stars – Willie Nelson, LeAnn Rimes – and only charging $10 per ticket.
