    Party with music legends at this famous venue for live music. Come early to snap a few pics of the artsy interior. Don't want to stand for the show? Balcony seats are first come with comfy seats.

    I heard my friend Barbara Menendez's band play here. They're called "The Help" and they are amazing.

    It is really an amazing place. All is music... And of real quality... And the food which these bright people recommend is worth tasting. A must to be visited...

    Never got to see a concert here but the food was very good. Will have to come back so I can compare it to the Chicago one.

    Very different from HOB Orlando but in a good way. There's a great atmosphere and the venue always has something going on!

    “Super silent disco”: you wear headphones to listen either DJ’s depending on the color you select. Weird 🤪

    Great atmosphere! I visited on 5/8/16, and had the best host and waitress. Food and dessert were both great. Interesting decor.

    This was a stop for my husband and I on our move out to New Mexico. Wish we could've stayed longer. The bartender was so nice. We only got drinks tho.

    Love the live music. But the Shrimp and Grits was disappointing. The grits were shaped into a patty and fried. A little hard. Not creamy at all.

    Parking in Canal Place parking garage is the best deal when visiting House of Blues NOLA. Ask your server or hostess about validating your ticket for cheaper parking!

    Perfect happy hour spot every day from 3-6pm. Live music on the patio plus cheap eats and drinks! It’s a great way to kick off the weekend. – Team Live Nation

    The only reason to visit here, in my humble opinion, is if there is a performance you want to see.

    One really cool thing about this location is that sections of the building’s structure dates back to 1890, where it was used as a trading post, warehouse, and shoe factory. – Team Live Nation

    Beware their random searches. A fun place for shows, but they hate their customers.

    Tuesday on the patio is open mic comedy. Thursday on the patio is closed mic comedy. Something for everyone, good and terrible. Mostly terrible.

    Would not recommend. No order at door to get in. I was here first but other people just pushed free way in. Paid to get in, then they tried to get $50 more to sit. What a jipp!

    What used to be a good music venue has turned to garbage over the years. They hate their customers now here.
