We bought tickets to see Who's Bad, a Michael Jackson tribute band that was playing at the HOB. It was an all ages show as we were going because our 10yo is a fan. We were thought showtime was 8 so we arrived about 745. In reality doors opened at 8 with snow starting at 9. So we decided to... More

Easily walkable from downtown Marriott hotels including residence inn, spring hill and courtyard that collocate in historic building menu. Didn't catch a major show...but early music option, great bar service, fairly varied menu.

REK is king of Texas music and for three hours, everyone's a Texan! The opening act of Jr. Brown was fantastic. One thing about the venue and for which I took off a star- ok so you are frisking people and strict with security. You missed some knives yet managed to offend a lot of folks. I don't mind security... More

Last night I was thrown to the ground by a pair of off-duty cops employed by H.O.B. because I had a vapor pen in my hand in the outside smoking area. Completely violated my person and my rights and I paid them to do it. I have heard many other stories of brutality as well from our local HOB but... More

We attended a concert here the past weekend and sat in the balcony seats. Good acoustics and we were happy with the reserved seating. Bathrooms and bars were not too crowded. Will come here again.

I went to see the Pretty Reckless tonight and every once in a while things can get a bit out of control at rock concerts. not the case tonight. Everything was fantastic.

I have went here for concerts and the standing room is ok if you don't mind standing for about 3 hrs. It can get very hot there with do many people and I suggest that you pay extra for a balcony seat.
