“A long time favorite and go to spot for star watching in LA.”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

If you are into southern cooking and good music, House of Blues is definitely worth a stop. Mind you, should you not care for southern cooking and you're just into music, just make your first experience there on a night where there is a good show and get in there a bit early and get a seat, have some appetizers and just stay! It is so nice and there is quite the good sound system. If you're into star watching, and know- or meet- a House of Blues Club member, then maybe you can get into the private VIP area upstairs which is where the "green room" type action happens. Never know who you might see up there and I've seen plenty a star hanging out at the bar upstairs in the VIP. Totally a fun night for sure! (Also, the sunday gospel brunch is legendary... call for reservations!)

“shrimp and grits”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

OMG..........best shrimp and grits ever!!!!!!! I had done some research online as to where to eat. Picked the HOB for its new menue and new cook and glad I did. The service was excellent, the cook came to the table to ask how we liked the food. My son had the ribeye steak and its flavor was amazing. Plus the views from the restaurant overlooking the LA valley was amazing.....Def a place to come back to

“A great small venue.”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

They do what they do well. It's an intimate space, especially given some of the names that pass through. I find the Sunset Strip an annoying place to visit because the traffic is so bad, but I'm much more tempted to go if a show is here, as opposed to other joints nearby.

“Great sounds system, great bands, good visibility”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Seen lots of acts here from hip hop, Tech9 to punk, Bad Religion, and many more. Great selection, most patrons are well behaved, and you can see from almost anywhere in the house.
