Comfortable seats with no leg room. Balcony has a great view of the stage from all areas. Drinks are expensive at $10 for mixed and large beer. Although venue posts start of the concert is 8:00 pm, the band we paid to see didn't start until 10:45 pm. Two other bands played first. Food was good, bread extra. Excellent blues... More

Enough bathrooms to handle the ladies. Multiple bars, and they usually are pretty quick. The nicest thing about the place is that it's comparatively smaller than Bayou Music Center, and much smaller than larger venues - so you get a little more personal concert.

Stopped in while in town and Manager Jeremy was very helpful with providing information about the city. Voo-Doo Shrimp was great. Music was a nice touch!

A great place to take guest who visit and for them to glimpse the downtown nightlife. You can run in to pretty much anyone here who is affiliated with music-local celebrities and big stars.

House of blues has very good facilities for concerts, I liked how the tables are located in the center of the dance floor, you can have a fancy dinner while listening your favorite band.

This venue allows you to choose whether you want to be close to the performer standing on the floor in front of him or on the second floor seated. Either way it is a small concert hall (not accurately reflected in the picture of the building). It is only part of that building. Good acoustics. Fun place.
