About this Business
From Our Editors
There's almost always a line at Renegades. Luckily, it's meant for stepping and not for waiting, as the bar is a line-dance hotspot. There's ample room to move in the 10,000-square-foot space, and regular lessons teach beginners and children how to kick in time. As rows upon rows of visitors sync their footwork with the twang of country and western tunes, they might even be joined by celebrities—Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum have made appearances in the past.
Like the Sunday cornhole tournaments, these dances are some of the venue's classic down-home staples. Live bands and a mechanical bull also add to the Southern vibe, a convivial atmosphere that shines during long happy hours and twice-a-week ladies' nights. Still, Renegades is replete with modern touches, including 75 televisions, five full-service bars, and DJs spinning country and rock songs from the future. The grill too combines contemporary pub fare with old Southern standbys, such as chili cooked cowboy-style and pistol penne with applewood-smoked bacon.
