The building now known as Billy Bob’s Texas was built in 1910 and was once an open-air barn used to house prize cattle for the Fort Worth Stock Show. In 1936, as a Texas Centennial Project, the building was enclosed by the City of Fort Worth at a cost of $183,500 and the tower over the main entrance was added. The “new” structure contained 1,257 animal stalls, and a 1,200-seat auction ring that is now the Billy Bob’s Bull Riding arena. Livestock events were held here until the stock show moved to the Will Rogers Memorial Complex, in 1943. During World War II, the building was used as an airplane factory for the Globe Aircraft Corporation. In the 1950′s the building became a department store so large that the stock boys wore roller skates to make their jobs easier.
With 100,000 square feet of interior space and 20 acres of parking for entertainment and events, Billy Bob’s features 30 individual bar stations, Live Pro-Bull Riding, and a Texas size dance floor.
Billy Bob’s Live Pro-Bull Riding is sanctioned by Championship Bull Riding (CBR) and contestants compete every Friday and Saturday night. We’re talking real bulls – not mechanical!
While Billy Bob’s Texas is known for bringing in the biggest stars in Country music, it also has hosted some of the biggest names in Rock and Pop music, including: Ringo Starr, .38 Special, Men At Work, The Go-Go’s, Steppenwolf, REO Speedwagon, Styx, Pat Benatar, Heart, and ZZ Top. Even Ray Charles and Bob Hope graced the historically known stage of the World’s Largest Honky-Tonk.

FORT WORTH, TEXAS – After 37 years and more than 17 million Two-Stepping visitors, Billy Bob’s Texas replaced the iconic dance floor! Yesterday, the new dance floor was graced by one lucky couple who got the opportunity to conduct the “first dance”.
“Dance enthusiasts came from around the country,” said Billy Bob’s Texas partner Pam Minick. “Fans and friends of Billy Bob’s Texas were able to take a piece of the award-winning club home with them as we distributed segments of the historic dance floor to patrons celebrating this milestone.”
In addition to the millions of visitors that have enjoyed the 2,000 square foot dance floor, it has been featured in the movies, ‘Necessary Roughness,’ ‘Pure Country,’ ‘Baja, Oklahoma,’ ‘Over The Top,’ and several music videos including the most recent one, “Burn Out” by the Academy of Country Music’s ‘New Group of the Year’ Midland.
The unveiling was also covered live by local TV affiliate WFAA (ABC 8) [watch here].
