Enjoyed a fantastic evening here during a private concert with Gin Blossoms & CCR. Didn't see much other than stage after claiming a seat on the second floor balcony that offered great views of the acts. Fun atmosphere.

Thanks for sharing! Second floor balcony seating is available for majority of our shows. Just look for Reserved Balcony seating in the Ticket Type drop down menu. We hope you get a chance to visit us again soon. Thanks again. More

Some friends and I went to the House of Blues for dinner on a Thursday. We enjoyed the live band and the food was average. I didn't like my food but took a few bites. The waitress asked if I liked it and when I said I didn't, she offered to replace it or refund. It was very pleased with... More

So enjoyed the gospel brunch. We were unable to phone and book for some reason so lined up at the ticket place outside of House of Blues at 9:15 on Sunday morning and we got tickets and did not have to pay the online booking fee! Our seats were great. We were on the end of the long tables in... More

Went to the 10am gospel brunch and had a great time. The buffet food was plentiful and there was a great variety of foods to choose from. They also had bottomless mimosas. The show itself was very entertaining and they were all obviously very talented. If I could complain about anything it would be that it was extremely loud so... More

I visited for my 50th birthday and enjoyed the cauliflower in the Foundations Room. Good vibe and live band. Good service even if you are traveling alone. I will return.

First let start by saying we've been to several HOBs throughout the country and the one in NOLA assured that we'll never set foot in another one. We went to see Rumors, a Fleetwood Mac cover band - the band was good, but the place was so overcrowded you could barely move, and when you did move someone either spilled... More

Turned away twice because of an event in 3 days! When they finally were open on Sunday it took over an hour to get a couple apps, and there was only one other table outside with us! On top of that, the order was wrong when it finally arrived. Very disappointed

We wanted to hear blues and have dinner but was disappointed when with dinner we had a musician that did not do blues. Dinner was fair and left feeling the blues!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
