    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...

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

    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!

    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.

    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
