House of Blues, famous at its many locations around the globe, loses none of the glamor and glitz of its "faux dive" specialty here! Outsider art hangs all over the place from floor to ceiling, with the feeling of being in a perverted opera house. Seating more than 1,500 people, HOB lets visitors catch a concert while snacking on such menu selections as "The Yardbird" (a bourbon butter fried chicken sandwich with seasoned mayonnaise and dill pickle chips served with French fries). There is live music seven nights a week, with cover charges varying. Music styles are not limited to blues—jazz, and rock, with favorite bands such as Duran Duran and Styx also featured. You must make a reservation ahead of time.
