City approves permit for new bar at former Wild Horse location

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The City of Lufkin approved a special use permit request last night for a new drinking establishment at the former Wild Horse Saloon location, which is located on South Timberland Drive.

Jeffrey Tisdale, a dance teacher out of Houston, says he will be bringing a new countrywestern bar and dance club to the area that will have live entertainment and dance lessons.

The permit is preliminary, he says, but they hope to open by spring.
