“Attended Charity Function”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

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 to leave. Will be "busy" if ever invited in the future...which is a shame because the PURPOSE of the Gala IS worthwhile. If I were on the committee charged with organizing this event, I'd be INFURIATED with the "new" owners of "Bayou Place" and would find a NEW venue for this annual charitable event.

“It's OK, Not the Best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

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 itself is pretty basic, seats in the balcony were ok.
