Live Music | Cold Drinks | Proper Southern Food
The RCC is the Republic Country Club, a place where good people can relax and have a beer, a bourbon or some whiskey, and some proper slow smoked Texas BBQ, while listening to a musician croon his heart out around other like-minded people.
RCC has a very relaxed atmosphere. The place has the feel of a sleepy old town that hasn’t been touched in a generation, so don’t criticize that we have nothing that is fancy or new. Our menu of food and drinks is well-crafted but simple, so don’t come demanding a haute couture culinary journey or a broad array of beers and mixed drinks with stupid names like Sex on a Beach. Our team works diligently to source local ingredients for all of our fare, and we support many local farms and businesses including 44 Farms, Black Hill Meats, Slow Dough and Texas Quail Farms. It’s not just your average bar food – everything we serve is made from scratch in our very own restaurant, the Republic BBQ.
We have live music Thursday through Saturday nights. Often it will be someone whose name you don’t know, playing for a bar tab, trying to chase the dream. We hope to showcase some folks who need a barstool and a few willing listeners to hone their craft. We’ll ask that you pay attention to the band if you sit near the stage, and that if you wanna talk you respect them by moving to the back. We also have had some amazing national artists grace our little stage, including Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Tracy Byrd, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Charley Pride, Charlie Daniels, Robert Earl Keen, Cory Morrow, Pat Green, The Bellamy Brothers, and many, many more.
We have varied levels of Membership, and those who pay more for their Membership get more stuff. They wait in line less time, and they get advance notice of ticket sales before our others. We have loads of bills to pay, and that’s the only way we can do it. If you’re offended that someone who pays more gets more, this ain’t your place.
We don’t tolerate harassing the RCC hotties, harassing other guests, fights, or idiocy. We want people who enjoy a good time but know their limits, pay their bills, play nice with others, and act like civilized Rednecks. We want our staff and the bands to enjoy their jobs and to be treated with respect.
Michael Berry won’t be here every day, or for every concert, and won’t be able to visit with every person who shows up. He wants to have a good time, too, and relax just like everyone else. This is not a place to hang out with Michael, it’s a place to meet new people. He’s not the person to contact if you have a problem, the RCC team is for that. No, friends of Michael don’t get free stuff, and Michael will pay for things just like everyone else. There are bills to pay, and he’s made very clear that nobody gets a free ride, including him.
