Established in 1937, Henry’s Hideout was one of the oldest roadhouses in Texas and was truly a one of a kind establishment that won’t soon be forgotten. They billed themselves as the “Horniest Place in Texas” and with more than 6,000 racks of horns on the ceilings, they were probably right. In addition to the ‘horn museum,’ Henry’s otherwise nondescript exterior hid countless historic curiosities inside that helped make up the eclectic dance hall and rowdy cowboy bar that served the greater southeast Texas region for decades with live music, cold beer, bar fights, and pretty much anything else you might expect to find in a true roadhouse bar. Henry’s Hideout sadly closed in the early 2000s and the shuttered location was leased in 2008 by the Gilley family, formerly of the famous Gilley’s Dancehall in Pasadena. The Gilley’s location in Pasadena earned widespread fame when it was featured in the 1980 movie, “Urban Cowboy,” starring John Travolta and Debra Winger.
