House of Blues

November 1st, 2018

Calling all AV8 music lovers! This is a blog post for you. As you know, there is tons to do in the San Diego area. From waterfront community events to fine dining, you basically have it all, and that includes some great music venues. In particular, San Diego’s House of Blues.

The History of The House of Blues

House of Blues

This concert venue has been around for quite some time and has multiple locations. Founded by Isaac Tigrett, he wanted to create a music hall where people could come and enjoy the American art form known as “the Blues.” The very first of them was at a historical house in Cambridge Massachusetts in 1992. Now, you can now find a House of Blues in Chicago, Anaheim, Boston, New Orleans, Houston, and more.

What to do

A visit to the House of Blues can mean a lot of things. For one thing, it can be the ultimate night out. Throughout the week, they feature both local artists and household names. This music venue is also a place to enjoy food and happy hour. Tuesday through Sunday from 4 PM to 6 PM, their happy hour will include delicious appetizers and drinks. We cannot get enough of their bayou fritters and gator bites. As far as their cocktails are concerned, they make a mean Moscow Mule.

Then there are the gospel brunches. Every Sunday, lovers of southern food and gospel music gather together around 11 AM. Both before and during the show you can treat yourself to an all-you-can-eat buffet that includes tender carving stations and mouth-watering desserts. We highly suggest indulging in their chicken. Once you grab your brunch, you sit down at big tables, enjoy your meal, and even jump up on stage and dance the morning away with the gospel choir. In a way, it is like going to church with the addition of a delicious brunch. As their saying goes, “House of Blues is truly where music and food feed the soul.”

Upcoming Concerts
