Dress Code & Dance Floor Etiquette

THE RANCH Saloon gives country music and dancing a place to call home in Orange County! To ensure that our venue continues to be enjoyed by all our guests, we ask that certain standards of dress and etiquette be maintained.

Dance Floor Etiquette

We are a Country Music Dance Venue, therefore we feature country western style dancing such as Two Stepping, West Coast Swing, and Line Dancing. The Ranch Saloon has a managed dance floor. Provocative and out of control dancing is not condoned and you may be asked to leave the dance floor. Freestyle dancing is only allowed when called by the DJ or band.

  • The dance floor moves in a counterclockwise direction for Two Stepping. Fast and experienced dancers on the outside of the floor, slow and beginner dancers to the inside center of the floor.
  • The DJ or band calls every dance to maintain dance floor flow and safety.
  • Drinks of any nature are not allowed on the dance floor. This includes drinking across the rail.
  • No standing on the dance floor as it impedes the flow of dancing.
  • For the safety of our patrons, dance lifts are only allowed by experienced dancers and must be cleared by management or the DJ first.

We are a non-smoking, non e-cigarette and non chewing tobacco environment

THE RANCH management has been asked to provide any further guidance as deemed necessary and to bring to the attention of guests any departure from these standards.
