Bring a small or large group of friends and meet eligible men and women who enjoy good wine and an ambiance full of artistic charm.

If you love country music, cowboys, cowgirls and a loud, fun bar, the Cowboys Red River is the place to be. Show off your skills by jumping on the mechanical bull or grab a stranger and head out to the large dance floor for some two-stepping. This is a friendly crowd, where the drinks and flirtations flow freely. Cowboys Red River even hosts occasional dance lessons, serving up single dancing partners on a platter for those who may be too shy to approach others. If you're single when you walk in the door, you may not be by the end of the evening.
