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

While visiting Houston during Easter we came here for dinner, the food was quite good, there was an awesome band on stage, overall great atmosphere. Waiter was not attentive, our food came before the appetizer and had to ask multiple times for a drink ordered from the bar. We came at the end of a rush and there was a... More

This is great venue and night life spot boy I also love going to the Sunday Gospel Brunch. The food is delicious and the gospel concert program is very uplifting. Perfect for the entire family, kids included.
