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

Bayou Place is ok...there's the Hard Rock cafe and a few other restaurants and some shops but whatever. The music venue itself (formerly the Verizon Wireless) is easily my favorite place to see a show. I've seen Brian Wilson, Cake, Counting Crows, The Toadies and several other great bands there and I can't say enough. There are almost no bad... More

Really nice movie theatre, great sitting with a look-like-spa finishing! It is located right downtown Houston, there are a lot of things to do before/after a good movie!

The venue itself is nice enough for all types of concerts. However, the bar service is overwhelmed, under staffed, and at times they are rude. They could do so much better.

My wife and I attended the Feb 7 Ron White performance at the Bayou Music Center. The performance was great but the seats and facility was horrible. We had center section 24th row tickets on the floor (Sec 102, row X). The seats are literally connected folding chairs backed very close to the row in front. You better like your... More

This is the WORST seating I have ever paid for. We couldn't see the stage. Crappy folding chairs, linked too close together, lined up right behind the head in front of you. Duh, since the floor is flat - ever heard of staggering the chairs? How about enough room between rows for people to slide by you to get to... More

Had assigned seats but soon discovered NO ONE bothered to number the tables! The staff who were there to direct people were just as aggravated (and rude) as some of the attendees at this very important and otherwise worthwhile annual charitable event. As such, we weren't the least bit interested in participating in any of the auctions and couldn't wait... More
