The Albert Dance Hall was built in 1922 by Max Beckman, and provided the community a place for Saturday night dances and social gatherings. It featured German brass bands rotating between the Luckenbach, Hye and Weinheimer Dance Halls of the time. Located just south of Highway 290, halfway between Fredericksburg and Johnson City, the tradition of community gatherings and dancing continues at Albert, Texas Ice House & Dancehall. Stop in and enjoy a little taste of Texas tradition and a cold beer or cocktail and live music most evenings. The Albert, Texas Ice House and food truck, The Pig Pen, are both open daily.
