House of Blues Entertainment, Inc. brought its definitive live music brand to downtown Houston as an integral addition to downtown's GreenStreet development.
Designed as an extravagant multi-faceted entertainment destination and encompassing approximately 43,000 square feet, House of Blues Houston houses a multi-level Music Hall featuring national and local live entertainment, state-of-the-art sound and lighting technology, general admission dance floor, a seated balcony and seated boxes for private enjoyment. In addition to emerging artists of all genres, House of Blues clubs across the nation have hosted international touring artists and legends such as Prince, James Brown, John Mayer, Aerosmith, Dolly Parton, Joss Stone, Norah Jones, The Blues Brothers and countless others. Estimated capacity of the new Music Hall is 1,500.
The restaurant's display kitchen offers artistic adaptations of traditional Southern-inspired cuisine, including House of Blues signature dishes such Creole Seafood Jambalaya, pan-seared Voodoo Shrimp with Rosemary Cornbread and White Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding. Several full-service bars throughout the venue concoct House of Blues specialty beverages and the famed House of Blues Sunday Gospel Brunch, a sumptuous buffet paired with inspiring live gospel performances, is offered. A dedicated events space provides guests the opportunity to stage special events within the club.
In addition to the hand-painted interiors designed by House of Blues artisans, an estimated 350 pieces of original folk art have been installed throughout the club, hand-picked from House of Blues' artifact warehouse located in New Orleans. With more than 5,000 pieces, House of Blues venues house one of the largest publicly displayed collections of outsider folk art in the U.S. The Company Store, a unique onsite retail shop stocking original gifts, music, clothing and House of Blues souvenirs, offers original folk art for purchase.
The exclusive Foundation Room has also been introduced to the Houston community. The private membership club offers members and their guests luxurious upscale dining and world-class hospitality amidst a lush décor and antiquities. A portion of the membership proceeds benefits the International House of Blues Foundation (IHOBF).
