Went to the St Patty's day dropkick concert to kick off my sisters bachelorette weekend. It was awesome!! The venue was clean enpugh (at first) and there was almost no wait at any of the bars around. The floor did get into a mosh pit for most of the time, but when you didnt want to be in it you... More

This is such a neat venue with the different floors, not too big either. Everyone was very helpful and friendly and they put on a great show.

Went for a concert. No problems getting in, and seats were mostly comfortable. Bars only had 1 bartender each ( there are multiple bars), so that was problematic. Once the mikes were balanced, the music was great, Location near Fenway is cool. There are plenty of good restaurants in the area, so no need to go to the so-so HoB... More

I really enjoyed the House of Blues when I attended the Sum 41 concert in Oct. 2016. The staff was pleasant and friendly. Our seats were "balcony 1", row B, seats 207 & 208. This wasn't really a great choice because it was difficult to see the stage past the folks in the one row in front of us. I... More

I am NEVER one to go out of my way and berate a business I'm disappointed by - but my experience here was so terrible I need to share. Bought tickets online for a show, security won't let one of my friends in. He has paper ticket, confirmation email, order number, shows his bank account even!! They tell him he... More

I was looking for feedback on when to get to the venue for a 7 pm "doors open" event. After we parked we got into a huge line for the Rick Astley concert. We waited about 45 minutes to get in. I would definitely recommend eating at the restaurant so you can go into the short line.

We have gone to a blues concert with group of 10 people. It was all good but we all get tired because of standing constantly. I wish they had place to sit.

Went to one of the Mighty Mighty Bosstones shows just after Christmas in 2016. I was in Boston for a few days and wanted to check it out, especially after touring Fenway Park the day before. Most views on the Mezz level were ok. If I were to return, I would get balcony or the stadium seating as the views... More

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighbourhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
