    Downtown live music at its best - several venues in one. Eat in the HOB restaurant before the show and "pass the line" courtesy of the wait staff!

    If the security wasn't so ridiculous.. And the drinks weren't so absurdly priced.. This would be the best venue in town. But cmon.. No open packages of gum, cigarettes.. Lip balm! ?

    Located in a pretty cool part of downtown Houston, House of Blues is a great venue with good service that pulls in an awesome variety of live acts.

    Seeing a comedy show? Buy Seats! Standing room is for chumps! Watching comedy while you're standing up and drinking is just a recipe for disaster...

    Jeff Barker · June 1, 2013
  • Jason H.

    Head across the street, after the show to Dirt Bar for a few shots of Jack, you might just run into the band that just played!

    Been here a few times to see Heart, stryper, a Janis Joplin tribute band, and the hpmas. It's alright but the big complaint I have is post show there's NOTHING open nearby! Also mediocre street tacos.

    Drinks are overpriced but the sound system is good. Bring lots of cash for parking and drinking. Crowd is one step away from backwards caps.

    Challange the bartender at happy hour that you will not feel how strong his drinks are. You will feel it in the morning. Great Happy hour.

    Kyle Pourciau · November 21, 2011
  • Jenn

    Great venue! The only issue I have is the valet parking sometimes closes early, and a few times I'd had to leave my car overnight. Which sucks if it's not a weekend.

    Jenn · November 19, 2011

    love this place if you know the bartenders and some upper management

    Jojo Martinez · October 25, 2011

    The Security and Organizers here doesn't kniw and understand the proper way of arranging the queue. I suggest you come on time not an hour ahead of the event coz you can still go to the frnt line

  • pAx

    If you're new at the place, don't hesitate to ask where to go or else you might get lost. and NO SITTING ON THE WALKWAY, it's prohibited... the guard says it's their rule!

    If you can't get a table in the restaurant before the show starts, try the delicious Italian food at Josephine's across the street. – Team Live Nation

    Beautiful entertainment complex. Bar staff was extra friendly and were more than accomodating when correcting a slight error on their part. Get valet, it cost less than the event parking lot!!
