The House of Blues is a Must-Stop for NOLA Music

New Orleans is a late night city, where the musicians wail into the wee hours of the morning. Many of our guests want to take advantage of the local music scene and there’s no better place to send them for local flavor and top-notch music than the House of Blues.

Opened 20 years ago, the club is still housed in its original location in the historic French Quarter. And since the Blues Brothers christened the stage on the first night, it has been a hotbed of hit-makers and NOLA legends. Fats Domino, Dr. John and the Neville Brothers have played there, as have the likes of Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Buddy Guy and Elton John.

Upcoming shows this fall include:
October 3, 2014: Super Diamond−The Neil Diamond Tribute
October 5, 2014: Beck
November 11, 2014: Kalin and Myles−Chase Dreams Tour

Besides music, the club highlights up-and-coming comedy acts. Who knows, you may be seeing the next big star when you visit!

One thing is assured, and that’s great music and a good time. While at the House of Blues, you can begin your evening with dinner at its Crossroads restaurant. Food Network star Aaron Sanchez created the menu, an homage to American food with a distinctive NOLA spin.


Another fun event we love to suggest to guests is the House of Blues Gospel Brunch. After an early start with coffee and pastries at Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast, guests can enjoy a late morning feast of Southern specialties with some roof-raising, hand-clapping glorious music. Shows are held every Sunday starting at 10:00 a.m.

The House of Blues is located at 225 Decatur Street. You can catch its free shows and comedy acts five nights a week in the Lounge or the Voodoo Garden. For specific times, dates, and dinner reservations, visit the House of Blues website or call 504-310-4999. Your Innkeepers Joe and Bebe would be happy to assist with reservations for any of the above.
