We went to see the Garbage concert and it was great. We paid for VIP Parking which included a special entrance and access to the Jack Daniels Lounge. The extra money was totally worth it because we had quick access to the bar and a fast exit from the venue. However, the bartender sucked and did not know how to... More

The main thing we like about going to Bayou Place are the restaurants around it, the ease of parking and the actual venue itself. The acoustics are good and the access is easy.

Definitely not the fanciest place to go more live music. A little small, but great when you get to sit close to the stage. Have also seen roller derby here. Places to eat nearby and parking is not a real problem (underground parking).

I can’t believe this place stays in business. The problem with this venue is the seating. The seats are fold downs and are hooked together. The seats in front of you are so close that walking down the rows is very difficult. The area you are given to set in is so small that you will be touching the person... More

I have been to Bayou Place (formerly the Verizon Center) three times over the years - the first time was to see Oasis (when the Gallagher boys were not squabbling so much), the second time was for Megadeth, and this week, I have been to See Alice Cooper. The venue is easy to get to downtown, and there is lots... More

Saw Dancing With The Stars-or tried to. Don't bother paying extra for floor seats. The stage is so low and folding seats are all at the same level, so it's nearly impossible to see what's happening on the stage. It doesn't help that people are holding their cell phones above everyone to film and there is no policy against it... More

Bit of a sleeper some great resturants but we were there for Halloween and it was dead? Hope it gets busier.

Great venue, lot the intimacy with the entertainer. Could use a god cleaning as the stair railings were sticky from all of the spilled cocktails.

Blue Fish and Italian restaurants, and Sundance movie theatre are very good; the Sundance shows many films not available in all theaters. The Hard Rock Café is, well, the Hard Rock Café. If that's what you want, fine. The Sundance refunds the parking fee for underground parking right as you come in the door, which is nice. The only thing... More

My wife and I attended a show at the music center this past weekend. This was our first time to this venue. When researching the parking options, I selected a link on the venues web site for prepaid parking. The closest recommended parking was approximately 6 blocks away. I selected this lot. On arrival at the venue, much to my... More
