This place is a cash cow! In the heart of downtown Houston. Stopped in for drinks and to listen to some music. This place was a huge disappointment. There weren't many people in here and I guess that should have been a wake up call. The drinks were bad and a Bailey's and coffee was $12. If it had been... More

I went to the House of Blues last weekend with a large group. We enjoyed the burlesque show, but the VIP section was a joke. We purchased VIP tickets (over 100 dollars each) - which we thought meant we had two tables with 6 chairs at each table in an area with a waitress. When we arrived, the attendant at... More

Awesome show but expensive beers. Expected the place to be a warmer/coozier venue but seems to be more cookie cutter.

We saw Badfish at the upper level stage. Great show! The sound was impressive and seating comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. Being a short person I have trouble seeing around taller people so we did have to move a couple of times. My only complaint is the drink prices were expensive but I would still definitely come here... More

I have visited the House of Blues in Houston many times to see cover bands BACK IN BLACK twice , MYSTERIOUS WAYS twice and have seen Joe Satriani twice and Santana. Never disappointed with venue and sound production. Place is always fun and rowdy. The floor is always the place to be, but sitting upstairs in the balcony is good... More

Went to a concert event in the upstairs event center at the House of Blues Houston. Saw Hannibal Buress, he was great! Venue is very nice. Comfortable seating, every seat can see the stage. Drinks were strong, and good!
