House of the Blues - Quality venue, pricey tickets

I have to admit - I'm not a huge fan of House of Blues venues in general. The shows are pricey, the food's just OK, and they all look pretty similar. The House of Blues Chicago struggles with the same shortcomings, but it does have a great location and is close to some decent bars for an after-show drink in the area.

The House of Blues is actually open daily for lunch and dinner, whether there’s a show or not. The dinner/show ticket packages seem like a good deal, because the food here is somewhat expensive for what it is. They can do this because the Sax is next door, but there are a number of better food options just across the river.

Their Gospel Sunday Brunch looked interesting, though I found out later that this is a staple of a number of other House of Blues across the country and is not a signature event at the Chicago venue.

I had not heard of a lot of their upcoming performers (and I’m a young music fan), and like other House of Blues venues around the country the tickets were expensive for who the musicians were. Overall, not a must, but if a performer catches your eye at the HOB while you’re in the area, I’m told by locals that the acoustics are above average.
