House of Blues

from 32 reviews

The list of stars who have played at this Barefoot Landing venue includes such big names as 311, Snoop Dogg, Willie Nelson and Eminem. The patchwork warehouse structure has a definite Southern, bluesy vibe, with folk art on the walls and pretty much everywhere else you look. The space is big enough for a good-sized crowd, but small enough that there really aren’t any bad places to watch the show from – unless you get stuck behind a much taller person.
