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

We saw the Kings of Mic Tour here in July, the tickets stated doors opened at 7:00, well we arrived a hour later to find a super long line! What a bummer! This was also the case at a concert at the Toyota Center, so maybe this is typical for concerts on Houston (not the case in Chicago). The venue... More
