When I say surprisingly fantastic, it's because of how many negative reviews I've always seen for this place. When I say a large venue, it's because of many reviews I've always read that say this place is very small and intimate. Yes, it has a great ambience and intimate setting, yet it's quite large, and can hold something like a... More

This was our first visit to the House of Blues. The weather was cool and was due to be cold at the end of evening so we took coats and warm gear. As we went in we thought great, coat check. I put my scarf in my coat pocket and then handed this over to the member of staff. She... More

I've been to numerous concerts at HOB Boston over the past three years, and there has only been one occasion where I haven't had a problem with the staff. One particularly frustrating incident was when I was waiting in line with one of my girl friends. We were both under 21, and neither of us had consumed any alcohol. While... More

Have been here for two concerts and and am not a huge fan of this venue. If you have a general admission ticket, plan to line up hours in advance so you can get a good spot towards the front of the stage. If you come on time ,are late or are vertically challenged, good luck seeing anything. This venue... More

We recently saw Stone Temple Pilots at the House OF Blues in Boston. This is a pretty cool place to see seme live music. We had the second row of seats on the upper balcony. The second row is worthless if you are stuck in your seat as we were. It is better to go to the railing or be... More

If you enjoy live bands without being at the Garden or Gillette, this is a great venue. Stopped into the Foundation Room for a drink on the way in. Then, right up the stairs and to our seats for a wonderful night of music. Good place with great bands.

The House of Blues was an ideal setting for last night's They Might Be Giants concert! Small enough to feel intimate and give great experience to all - yet large enough to feel like a critical-mass of fans, the House of Blues delivered on the promise.

Great Venue to see a concert. We caught the Decemberist The tickets were reasonable and the view was excellent. The Beer selection was good and plenty of people around to help if you need it. I recommend seeing an act here. Clean bathrooms also.

I would never paid another cent at TD Garden. I came to the house of blues to see my favortie drag queen perform and the show was excellent but the venu was just as great. You dont have to walk 5 minutes to get to the bar where they only serve beer and closes down at 10pm like TD Garden... More

I recently attended Galactic at the House of Blues. I love this venue, I'd rather see a concert here than at one of the larger concert halls. You can easily see the band from the floor, or can view from the balcony. Lighting and sound system is excellent. Loud but not deafening. The staff is very customer friendly. There is... More
