On Location

The club in the opening scene - The Bandstand - in which Dalton was hired from was not located in Atlanta but was located in Anaheim, CA. The club is still in operation today and is now called the Cowboy Boogie. The same club was used as the location for Sam Eliott's character's strip club where he was working, prior to signing on to help Dalton. I was the sound engineer at the Bandstand at that time and worked on the movie. [Thanks to Robert Frost]

The diner scene was filmed in Santa Clarita at a place known as the "The Office".

The scene when Dalton is going to his car after finding his friend stabbed on the bar, was filmed on 13th Street near Newhall/Valencia

Although we had received various reports of the main locations in Road House, Cody kindly wrote in to say that the scene where Dalton dodges the the man driving wildly while listening to music in his red mustang was shot outside Sanger, California. Also the barn that Dalton lived in and the house across the river that Brad Wesley lived in are located in Sanger, California and the river that runs between the two is the kings river. Randy Wenzel kindly confirmed that this was correct. The barn Swayze lived in, the house Brad Wesley lived in, the "swerve scene", etc. were all filmed outside of Sanger, CA. All located on Trimmer Springs Rd. His mother used to own the property that the big house is now on.

The Jasper scene, with the clock, was filmed in downtown Reedley, CA. [Thanks to Randy Wenzel]
