House of blues in Chicago is situated in Downtown area and is one of the most happening place for music lovers. It has 4 flours and is worth going to this place. Before you book table one needs to see the timings of live band show. All sort of cocktail as per your demand you will find here.

First, we only went for the music, which was great. The sound system is so clean and the music -- Steve Ditzell was terrific. His guitar playing fabulous and voice very clear and beautiful. The atmosphere at the club is wonderful. Knowing it was a chain i first wrote off the art in the House of Blues as chain decoration.... More

We recently visited Chicago for my first time. What a great city! Full of great architecture, great food and great music everywhere. We visited the House of Blues on a weekday night and not surprising there was good live entertainment and a lively crowd. Upon arrival an hour earlier than our reservation (we came in from PA and we forgot... More

The music was great, service good and the food so so. I ordered the steak salad and was very disappointed. NOT a salad at all. It has steak slices, potatoes, and asparagus. The balsamic dressing was not tasty at all. But Cadillac Dave and the band made up for the food.

Took us an age to find the place and even more time to find the entrance! Looks like it is set-up more for people driving to the location then walking there! When we did get there, not a lot was happening and none of the staff seemed to interested in seeing if we needed help or what we wanted. Very... More

We were there during Happy Hour mid week. The place was almost empty but the music was great. Two performers sang and played to us for 60 + minutes. The were wonderful. We didn't eat there but the food looked like typical fried food. I would imagine it gets noisy when the place is full.

Thank Anne S
