I've been to the House of Blues for concerts. I finally got a chance to attend the Gospel Brunch. I loved it. It was everything I expected it to be. The food was scrumptious and the music was spiritual. The featured artist was Gary Mayes and Nu Era. I'm very familiar with his work. One of my favorite songs is... More

We purchased tickets for the August 9, 2014 Zoso concert at the House of Blues. They are a LED ZEPELLIN Tribute Band. We opted for the reserved seats (in the balcony). In the elevator, another couple stated that they attended a previous concert and had to stand for the entire performance. We are 60+, so we were glad we paid... More

Apparently, water is very premium at HOB. They won't cut you any slack even of you're the DD. First you wait 10 minutes, then you pay $6 for a bottle of water, $2.50 if you just want it in a plastic cup. If you give the bartender a $5 expecting change back you won't get it. The bartenders assume a... More

Good food and good music - very enjoyable. Brunch is the usual egg dishes, omelettes and carving table with some Cajun dishes included in the buffet. Excellent banana bread pudding on the dessert table. Enjoyed singing along with the gospel songs.

My husband and I visited for the Dita Strip Strip Hooray show. We had to wait in a ridiculously long time (both length and time) before getting into the venue. Once we did get inside, we were pleasantly surprised by the smallness of the venue and how close we could get to the stage. It was a great place to... More

I had never been before recently going to see Cowboy Mouth & I was very surprised at how civilized the experience was. We started off in The Foundation Room before the show (highly recommended), which allowed us a comfortable place to get started. Easy to visit with friends & get ready for the upcoming show. The main room was far... More

I have seen many shows here as Houston is really lacking in venues for live music. The House of Blues Houston is ridiculous in their drink prices and is very close to legalized robbery. Having a few drinks here will make your wallet will feel violated for the entire evening. Simple cocktails such as rum and coke run 18 to... More

The concierge in our hotel suggested House of Blues as a great place for a burger and although I was skeptical, my son was interested and I'll do about anything to get him to eat real food. We went at about 6:30 on a Saturday night and the place was empty. Not a good sign to start but we did... More

There is not a great big stage for performers. You are pretty much at the level with them. Great experience. Did I mention their food was great as well? Mac & Cheese that's not baked, crispy pizza, a lot of great foods.

In the mood for some music in a more intimate setting than that offered by a large pavilion? If so, then the House of Blue Houston could be just the place for you. The venue features national and local acts, including some that are more difficult to track down, for your listening and viewing pleasure. I’ve been to House of... More
