Buck Owens Crystal Palace (also known as the Crystal Palace and The Palace) is a music hall located in Bakersfield, California. It was constructed by Buck Owens, and was opened in 1996. Primarily it is a performance venue for country western music, although other music genres have been heard there. It is also the home of the Buck Owens Museum, which contains items related to his career (some of the items are also available for viewing online). Although it is classified in this article as a music hall, it is also a nightclub, bar, restaurant, and museum.

The Crystal Palace is designed in the Western Revival style, a style that resembles buildings from the 19th-century American Old West. The interior resembles an American western town from that same period. The museum is located in display cases around the first floor, which resemble the windows to the building.

  • First time there. Was amazing. Food was fantastic. Had house bands. The decor was great to look at. Definitely will go again.
  • Incredible venue, and the Sunday brunch is out of the world, bring your appetite. I've never had chicken fried steak, tri-tip, bacon, sausage and hot links on the same plate! Carnivore Heaven...
