Great venue with great live music, the bartenders are normally slammed but do a great job of getting to everyone. You will stand for most all concerts unless you pay extra for VIP or the balcony when it is open.

I've only been to see live music here but it ALWAYS rocks! Great sound system. The location is near a few bars and eateries.

We attended the "World Famous House of Blues Gospel Brunch" and afterwards wished that we had went elsewhere. The tickets are expensive, but there is an included show, which in other cases would make up for the cost. Here, the food was a MAJOR disappointment. Show: This is gospel music, not a regular concert....as advertised. The show and music was... More

House of Blues hosts a lot of today's top artists in every genre of music. The venue itself is nothing overly special, on a concert night there's nowhere to dance or get much space, it gets really packed. With all the people in there it also tends to get very hot. After the show they are in a huge hurry... More

Belanova is my favorite band. When they tour, the come to House of Blues- It's a good spot for a show, big enough to not be crowded but intimate enough so you can see the artist if you are in the balcony or the table seating. I recommend the balcony. You have a designated elevator, you have to show your... More

My husband and I booked a quick getaway in downtown Houston and stayed at the Hilton Americas. We walked over to House of Blues on Saturday night for dinner and live music. It is a phenomenal venue set up, large but intimate and good views/sound. Ask for Tony to be your server - he rocks! We ordered the steak salad... More

I took my teen daughter here to see Meghan Trainor & it was a great experience start to finish! The area where the band plays is small enough to give an intimate experience- no nosebleed seats. If you don't wish to stand or don't like a crowd there are tables further back. We ate at the restaurant above the House... More

Stopped in for a late afternoon lunch while travelling. Had my father and kids with me. Steak salad was really good, server, Richard(?), was friendly, and the kids loved looking at all the cool art. The server took the time to explain how every store has different local artists, which we thought was neat. Kids loved the dessert, and my... More
