Strap on your cowboy boots, kick up your spurs, and throw on that cowboy hat! Unfortunately, it is slim pickings for the Tallahassee area if this type of bar is what you're into, but here are some of the best country bars in the Tallahassee area.
Growler Country is Florida’s first growler filling station! And since the craft beer industry on the rise, they've expanded to a full service craft beer pub serving pub food, cider, wine, and soda in growlers, either in the tap room or to-go. This may not be what you were thinking when you thought about a country bar, but Growler's is casual, values beer above all else, and even has a Tallahassee beer bus!
Bullwinkle's Saloon has been serving up that country bar atmosphere to the people of Tallahassee since 1979 with an old-school saloon interior. With its dark wood interiors and dim lighting, you'll be able to dance the night away to some of country's best hits! Don't be put off by some bras you might find dangling from the ceiling. Their drink specials make up for the... odd decor.
For a local, hole-in-the-wall experience, check out Palace Saloon! You'll find Palace Saloon packed, especially on game days. Palace Saloon has pool tables, darts, and even video games.
Some call Palace Saloon the ultimate dive bar in Tallahassee, but come check it out for yourself. There are even $6 pitcher specials, and, if smoking indoors is something that appeals to you, you can do that here, too.
The Moon isn't your typical country bar. They've hosted performers such as George Strait, Hall & Oates, Bonnie Raitt, and Kenny Chesney. The Moon will be hosting a Southern Soul Memorial Weekend event to celebrate local Southern soul artists. The inside of the Moon might not seem to be a country bar, but the ambiance and warmly-lit wood floors create the perfect atmosphere for a country night on the town.
If a country bar doesn't have whiskey, it's not a country bar. At Warhorse Whiskey Bar, whiskey is not only served but celebrated. Their selection of food items is also delicious. If you ask Warhorse-goers what draws them to Warhorse, it's the no-frills, cool atmosphere! Not to mention, their drinks are pretty affordable, too.
Whether country bars are your scene or not, Tallahassee has some great ones offering a little something for everyone.
