    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.

    DJ C. · February 28, 2010
  • Joseph W.

    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 W. · 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 C. · February 28, 2010

    Most expensive PBRs in Boston. Only 6 bux!

    friendly bartenders who make a mean cocktail..

  • Steve J.

    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 J. · March 29, 2010
  • DJ C.

    Have the Calamari in the restaurant.

    House of Blues Boston........Dropkick Murphy's.......nuf said. I love this venue. Definately top 3 of all time.

  • Kenny H.

    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.

    Kenny H. · October 20, 2010
  • Andrew D.

    Bring as minimal things as possible. Last time I was there it took me almost an hour to get through security.

    6 bucks for a PBR is a ripoff

    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

    Patrick the bartender in the restaurant is extremely attentive and won't let your glass go empty.

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

    House of Blues Boston is pager friendly.

    Kevin M. · June 18, 2013
  • Sean M.

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

    Sean M. · November 21, 2011
  • Julie H.

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

    Julie H. · February 18, 2011

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

    Joan M. · March 28, 2010
  • 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.

  • 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

    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

    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

    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 S. · March 6, 2013
  • BU Today

    Arrive when doors open & you can get close enough to the stage to scrutinize your favorite artist’s nose rings. Snag space at the iron bars and you’ll feel like a golden god, à la Robert Plant c 1975. Read more

    If you want to listen to real blues, that's the place. Loved it! · April 10, 2012
  • Rheinheart B.

    Don't bring a coat! People star lining up for coat check before the encore and it usually takes 45 min to an hour to pick yours up!

    Six fucking Bux for a pbr?!?! Damn you Dan akroyd # house of rules

    Paul L. · March 31, 2012
  • Brian H.

    The biggest and most important tip of all - eat at the restaurant before the show! You'll get in more quickly, you'll have an awesome view, and more importantly you'll have the time of your life.
