It was Easter Sunday and we could not believe it was openned for dinner. The food was fenomenal, but the band that was playing was remarcable. During breaks the singer would come to our table and engage in a conversation that teally made us feel like home. I will for sure visit it everytime I go back to Chicago.

Was looking for some Blues whilst in Chicago, went here and was disappointed. Some karaoke was going on before a band came on. Band were really good, played Stax and Soul all night. Would have understood if I was in Memphis. Venue is awesome, great decor. Good choice of merchandise. Reasonably priced.

The atmosphere is great and the food was plentiful. The art work around the bar was interesting and well worth looking it. A fun evening

We went to the Gospel brunch on Sunday morning, the music was impressive and the food was great! The whole atmosphere made it quite special

Outstanding music and fun. Attended an event and the restaurant. This is my fourth House of Blues in different cities and the food, bands and drinks are consistently excellent. Great time.

Went there for an industry party. Heart was the band and Ann and Nancy sounded great. Always fun to see a live band in a small venue. I got to watch from one of the balcony areas by the foundation room. Staff there was friendly and helpful

This seemingly small venue is actually rather large once you take in the multiple upper stories. I've attended concerts and events here and have spent time on all of the floors. It's hard not to have a good view to the stage unless you're standing at the back of the bar. I also recommend having a drink in the intimate... More

We had bought tickets to see the amazing Jessie J. I knew we had general floor admission but I had no idea what this meant. The doors opened at 7pm - we got there around 7.40 to find it very busy but not completely heaving however there were no bar stools or tables left. We ordered drinks and then headed... More

Had a great meal at the HOB in Chicago before our actual concert. There was some live blues being played while we ate and it was a great experience. It had a homey feel with the stage right there and we had a great time. Great food too!!! I had the "Flat iron steak salad" and it was HUGE!!! Our... More

We were supposed to eat at Howl at the Moon, but when we arrived we found out that they were closed for a private event even though we had called and were not told that. We started walking and looking for a place to eat and listen to music. Our group of 8 got out the smart phones and came... More
