I saw ToTo at The House of Blues... It is a nice venue. Not overly clean but it is NOLA so it is kind of expected in that area. The sound was great and not too loud (more a testament to ToTo than the venue). I would go to other shows there for sure.... The size makes it cool since... More

We are a family of 5. Three of us will eat just about anything, and love to try authentic local food, but two are not adventurous at all. This menu offered great choices for all of us. We got the shrimp appetizer which was very spicy and delicious. The shrimp and grits were made in a spicy chipotle sauce which... More

New Orleans at its best. The gospel brunch held on Sunday mornings gives a real flavour of NOLA. We were seated in tables of eight and at our table were two locals, two Canadians, two from Wyoming and us two Brits. We got on really well. The food provided was excellent and plenty to go round and the artists and... More

My wife's birthday was on the same day as the Chevelle show, so a group of about 15 family and friends got tickets and the show was FANTASTIC. It is a small, intimate venue, the sound was loud, yet clear so anywhere in the room is a good spot. The bar had giant cans of beer as well as good... More

This was NOT billed as an after-set party during the Essence Fest weekend. The concert starting 3 hours behind schedule is not acceptable. Trust me that was my first and final visit there for an evening concert. The only good thing about this place is no matter where you are seating or standing it's a good view (small venue).

Kim - Thank you for taking time to write a review. We understand this show did not run on schedule as most shows do. We did anticipate the show to begin after the end of the festival, which is why it was advertised to end at 4am. We apologize for any inconvenience which may have been caused by the delayed... More

I went to the first ladies of Hip Hop show at the House of Blues NOLA with 4 other people on Sat 7/5. Doors opened at 10pm, showtime set for 11pm. We were in line early. It was my first time visiting this place and a few others in my party. Tickets were general admission standing room only. The seats... More

Thank you for writing about your experience. The First Ladies of Hip Hop did not run as a typical show. It was advertised to end at 4am to allow for the flexibility to alter set times according to the end of the festival happening that weekend.

Have a couple of drinks, eat a bit of their not bad food and go to a concert the same night! They often have two different music shows from which to choose. Have seen multiple excellent concerts here
