Gilley’s Club will open in early 2020 at 1400 Link Road, League City, as part of the major Epicenter League City development that will soon be underway. Country singer Mickey Gilley founded the original honky-tonk bar Gilley’s Club in Pasadena in the 1970s, and the club was the central location of the 1980 film "Urban Cowboy." It closed in 1990 after a fire. The new Gilley’s Club will pay tribute to that heritage with a bar and family-friendly restaurant. There are other Gilley’s Clubs in Dallas and Las Vegas.
