Welcome to House of Blues! Visit us for live music, delicious cuisine and amazing special events. Where Food and Music Feed the Soul!
The mezzanine is not the best place to see a show
Great service and even better food. It's also pretty inexpensive for the location!
Friendly staff, nice sound
This is one of my favorite venues to see shows they book really good bands
I wish they had more light beer. I also hate how their shows end at like 10
Great place to go if you have a disability. Very accommodating. Call ahead to get on the ADA list.
Best concert venue I've ever been in. Big enough to hold a crowd, small enough to feel like everyone is close.
Meh. I'll come here only if I have to. It seems to be getting a little better over the years, though. Doesn't look like Avalon was just gutted anymore.
Great concerts 🎸🎼🎷🎵🎺. Sunday Brunch is awesome.
Gay dance party called 'Epic Saturdays by Chris Harris' on Saturday nights.
No cameras allowed. Don't even try, they'll take it and/or won't let you in
Purchase either a meal or merchandise inside the bar before the show and you will be given access to the front of the line. This will all but assure you a prime spot to watch the concert.
their scoop of vanilla ice cream goes great with mac n cheese
it's a pretty massive space so get in line early for a good spot
Shows are usually good. Get beers or drinks by the two's. Don't wear flip flops or sandals unless you don't mind sticky feet.
If you get food before an event (and spend enough), you get onto the priority line afterwards.
Great place to see a band. Get the GA tickets and push your way up front!
Stupid, pointless rules... If your license is expired, you can't drink here The girl at the door tried to say it's illegal... nope, only if you're driving, and even then it's only a fine.
Security is super strict. Even when you get in, it seems like they are out to get you because they are constantly watching you. It's very uncomfortable.
If your tickets are on the mezzanine, get in early, get on the rail and stay put or you'll never see the show once it fills up.
I once visited here
Never attending House of Blues again. Incredibly poor customer service and no communication with customers.
Nice ambience- first concert I've been too and it was everything I hoped for!
When I grow up, I want to be St. Vincent.
Terrible customer service. They dont tolerate anything but you standing there breathing.
Have you checked out a show at the House of Blues? Give them a rating on Wyngspan: http://bit.ly/1jomSo3
There's these stupid yellow lines around the venue and if you get caught stepping on one you'll need to move.
No double stacking on coat rack? Cheapos!
I love this place! Always gets good shows, bartenders are quick and excellent sound. I have lost half of my hearing here. As a short girl I'm always able to find a spot to see. I'm here once a month!
If you are far from the stage, don't waste your time taking shaky video or blurry photos. Just watch the show and look on YouTube for better vids from people who were close.
House of Blues Boston is pager friendly.
December 3, 2012 ~ RARE Boston Legends Benefit Concert for the documentary film about the early days of WBCN titled "The American Revolution". http://www.facebook.com/events/254120681383335
Get there the earliest you can to get close to the stage as possible and buy merch before the show ends.
"Don't lose your spork."
20 mins wait for a sandwich is just awful
Eat at the restaurant before a show, and you can "skip the line" when the doors open. :)
This venue is horrendous. Bought general admission tickets and was forced to go to the mezz section. Also can't access the merch booth until after the show. Can't see anything.. Don't go here
The first ever HOB in the US was located in Harvard Square. It was opened in 1992 by Isac Tigrett (co-founder of the Hard Rock Café) and Dan Aykroyd, the star of The Blues Brothers!
Don't buy tix on the second or third floor - or you can't go down stairs to buy merch until after the show. Why?
Forget waiting in line, foundation room is the way to go
This place is a total rip off. $6 PBR's? Really? That's just inappropriate. They tore down the Avalon for this disasterpiece? Just awful, hate having to come here to see a band.
Coloradoan folk band The Lumineers, who recently performed on Saturday Night Live, comes to Boston on Feb. 4. George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic will also take the stage on Feb. 8.
A lot of room & good sound on the floor. Security was a little over the top checking inside my aspirin bottle & the zipper of my purse & $6 for a tall boy PBR ($1 beers). Not sure how I feel overall.
Apparently house of blues turns the lights and mic off if a band goes 2mns over their time limit. Bullshit
Be cautious about drinking alcohol anywhere near the entrance. They will turn you away even if you are 21+.
$6 PBR? These people must be voting for Romney.
