Description:
Gilley's is a bar/honky tonk founded in 1971 by country singer Mickey Gilley in Pasadena, Texas. It was the central location in the 1980 movie Urban Cowboy.

It was a huge tin metal building that housed multiple bars and mechanical bulls.Connected to the club was a small rodeo arena that would also host both bicycle and motorcycle motocross races on Friday and Saturday nights.<!-- Image with inadequate rationale removed: -->

Sherwood Cryer was the co owner of Gilley's; he had many night clubs in Pasadena during the 70's and 80's.

Gilley's closed after a falling out between Gilley and Cryer. In 1989, Gilley's suffered an arson fire that gutted the interior. The rodeo arena and some livestock stalls were the only structures still standing until 2006, when it was demolished by the Pasadena Independent School District, its current owner. Only the old sound recording studio remains, on Spencer highway.

On October 2, 2003, Gilley's was reopened at a new location in Dallas-Fort Worth. The new club features a main show room and the original mechanical bull, El Toro, featured in the movie Urban Cowboy. In total, the new club has of restaurant, entertainment, meeting, and private function space.
