What is this?

  • This elegant private club is bathed in earthy tones and rustic touches, offering an authentic western experience that marries fine food and spirits at member tables of four, six and eight or private dining areas for groups of 12, 28 and 40.
  • The second part of the experience is the Rodeo and chuckwagon racing action, coupled with the Grandstand Show, a spectacle of entertainment and talent. Take it all in from a secluded and upscale seat deck with personalized service.
