Best Live Music Venue: Schroeder Hall

Schroeder Dance Hall was voted best live music venue in the 2013 Best of the Best contest. The dance hall was also voted best place to dance.

Sharon Kleinecke, owner and manager of Schroeder Hall, one of the oldest dance halls in Texas, said she credits their continued success to good music.

"We bring in the cream of the crop," Kleinecke said. " We work hard to bring in the top entertainers that the people like."

Kleinecke said she, her husband and another couple invested in the dance hall in 2000.

"My husband always wanted to have a bar and grill type thing. We've been able to expand hall shows to almost every weekend since," Kleinecke said. "My plans are to try and start opening the saloon on Thursdays."
