For the Polaris area, Tequila Cowboy represents the primary "club-like" atmosphere. Sharing owners and a building with a pizza place and a karaoke bar, Tequila Cowboy allows patrons to transition from primary area with a dance-floor/bullriding area and three bars to a smaller (though sometimes not any more subdued) karaoke place where groups can really go crazy. Patrons seem to range in age with a large number being in their early twenties and others in their mid-forties. Clearly, Tequila Cowboy is a "hook-up" bar...its music, price, drinks, and atmosphere bring it to a rating of "3" (average), but if you are looking for a random hookup in the Polaris area the patrons are more likely to be accomodating than many other venues--in such cases, you should consider this bar a 4 or 5.
We went to see In The Flesh, a Pink Floyd tribute band. It was advertised that they were going to play at 7pm and that the gates opened at 5. We showed up at 7:15, there were just enough people in there to occupy every seat in house (which was expected) but there wasn't any music playing when we arrived. Someone decided to push the start time back an hour, and then another hour. So we (the captive audience) got to stand on hard concrete for 2 hours before band went on. We stood there, starring at a stage that was all set up, ready to rock, but were forced to listen to bro-country and get gauged on prices for food and beverages. I don't think I'll be back.
Good layout, great location! Enjoyed the band and heard this place books some great acts. Food was good and portions are sized to share with friends. Watch out: Drinks are expensive! And to close out the night, there's a karaoke bar attached! Not really my thing, but fun to go watch folks sing after they've had a few drinks!
