    Spend $15 at the House of Blues Restaurant before the show and get into the music hall before everyone else. Kiss long lines goodbye. – Team Live Nation

    upper mezz area impossible to see stage, rude staff and stupid rules about where you can/can't stand, and heinously overpriced drinks - $6 for a PBR?!!!

    Enjoy a meal & concert at House of Blues on Landsdown street in Boston

    If you have dinner at the restaurant or buy something from the store, you can skip the security line.

    Go House of Blues early enough to snag a spot against the railing on the second floor. Great spot to see a show and watch the crowd.

    Joseph Walter · October 24, 2009
  • DJ C.

    The second floor has the best views in the house. It's not always open, and sometimes requires an extra ticket, but it's worth a try.

    DJ Capobianco · February 28, 2010

    Most expensive PBRs in Boston. Only 6 bux!

    friendly bartenders who make a mean cocktail..

    I hate this HOB. It is too big no vibe at all and they have so many fucking rules. I hate corporations running clubs. Bring back a real club like the Avalon R.I.P.

    Stop by the little sausage stand after the show and listen to their sales pitch. It's funnier than most stand up I've heard.

    Steve Judd · March 29, 2010

    Have the Calamari in the restaurant.

    The newest addition to Lansdowne Street, the House of Blues has a musical headliner almost every night of the week. A full bar and restaurant serving up southern-inspired cuisine also rock. Read more

    Get there early & you can get really close to the stage!

    If you here to enjoy the Deadmau5 show: jokes on you. Enjoy Jersey Shore Jr. Courtesy of all the little kids 8-)

    6 bucks for a PBR is a ripoff

    Rick Murphy · May 18, 2010
  • Taylor T.

    $6 PBR? These people must be voting for Romney.

  • Sean M.

    Also, people really need to stop filming shitty vids on their cell phones and just enjoy the show.

    Check out the on-site restaurant at the House of Blues for dinner before the show.

    AllenGerritsen · February 9, 2011
  • Tim B.

    Eat @ the restaurant before a show in order to jump the line and get in early!

    Tim Bell · May 18, 2010

    In 2009, this House of Blues sold more concert tickets than any other club in the world. The original, much smaller, venue opened in Harvard Square in 1992 and closed in 2005, before this one opened. Read more · November 8, 2013

    If you get 2nd floor mezz tix be sure to get a spot early by the railing if you want to see ANYTHING

    the second floor mezzanine has NO VIEW unless you're standing right at the railing.

    Sit at the bar if Patrick is working. He's very attentive and a GREAT BARTENDER!!!

  • Ashley M.

    Not worth the money, was treated soooo rude. Kicked out twice for being 22 young looking and 100% sober. Couldn't enjoy the band. Fuck u house of blues never again. Tell friends forget it.

    Wow. $6 for a PBR tall boy. What??

    Julie H. · February 18, 2011
  • Joan M.

    The "reserved seating," for which we paid extra, is obstructed view standing balcony, Eff you, House of Blues! Never again!

    Joan Matelli · March 28, 2010
  • Stephen B.

    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.

  • Joni

    Terrible customer service. They dont tolerate anything but you standing there breathing.

    Joni · February 21, 2014
  • Candace

    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

    Candace · March 22, 2013
  • Derek S.

    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?

    Derek Showerman · March 6, 2013

    Forget waiting in line, foundation room is the way to go

    All drinks in the city are overpriced, can we stop hearing people complain about each bar individually and tackle the larger issue. The rents too damn high.

    Jacob Noble · October 12, 2011
  • Sascha M.

    If your on the second floor they don't let you buy tshirts till after the show. Wtf.

    Sascha Martin · November 27, 2010
  • Alyce C.

    Go to whatever lengths possible to skip the overpriced coat check. Don't bring a backpack, they will force you to check it.

    Alyce C. · August 24, 2010
  • Pat A.

    their scoop of vanilla ice cream goes great with mac n cheese

    Pat Addams · August 22, 2014
  • Dawn T.

    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.

    Dawn Tully · May 17, 2014
  • Tyler P.

    Never attending House of Blues again. Incredibly poor customer service and no communication with customers.

    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. :)
