August 05, 2011A Real Chicago experience at the top of many Chicagoans list of things to do is living and breathing the live music scene that can be found around every corner of the downtown area and neighborhoods of Chicago.
Where we’ll be sure to touch on each and every one of these venues and festivals the city has to offer, we’d like to start simply with a name that, when heard, screams a mixture of chaos and harmony, always with a good time guarantee. Inviting acts ranging from billboard chart toppers to local indie bands, the House of Blues is also a space that accommodates all ages’ shows, karaoke nights, and Sunday Gospel Brunches.
With an inviting operahouse-like atmosphere that meshes 21st century stylings with old Hollywood glamour featuring retro hues of golds and reds and one-of-a-kind artwork, the House of Blues is acoustically and aesthetically a rockin’ venue for live music and of course, cocktails and cuisine.
Synonymous with celebrity, Chicago’s House of Blues is one of 12 Houses located throughout the United States and is where some now famous acts originally got their first big break. If you’re not enthralled with the on-stage performance, which is unlikely, it’s not rare to find a Chicago celebrity face amongst the fans of the performing band.
