    The upper Grand Tier seats have done serious funk on them. They really need to call Stanley Steamer.

    Only come here if your favorite band is breaking up... for good. Double whiskeys are $20 a pop, $40 tix, bartenders suck. Never again.

    You can actually use a credit card at the main bar on the right of the entrance as you come in, the 'temporary' bars are cash only.

    You’re steps away from cool restaurants and bars for before-and-after partying, including Warren's, La Carafe and Hearsay at Market Square, and many more hot spots at the Houston Pavilions.

    The fun doesn't have to stop once the concert is over! Head next door to Roc Bar for discount entry with your show ticket. The drink specials are great all night long! – Team Live Nation
