Dallas's very own House of Blues is located in the historic White Swan building in Victory Park, just across Woodall Rodgers Freeway from the West End. This incredible venue hosts shows by some of music's finest talents while serving excellent Southern food.
Live music plays nearly every night. The music is predominantly rhythm and blues, but other genres are represented regularly. With room for 1625 people, the music hall can accommodate a good-sized crowd. There is a lot of seating, but not enough for all 1625 people. Often, audience members will dance or stand in groups to watch the show.
Southern-style cuisine is served in the four hundred person dining room. Gumbo, jambalaya, cornbread, catfish, and ribs are followed by key lime pie, bread pudding, and other tasty desserts.
The Music Hall is separate from the Dining Room. If you want to eat, I recommend arriving early and dining. Call (214)978-2583 to make reservations. Reservations are not required, but it's a popular place. The House of Blues also has what they call their "Pass the Line" deal. Show the host your receipt from dinner (or from their gift shop) and get priority entrance to the Music Hall.

House of Blues in Dallas
The White Swan Building can be seen from the Woodall Rodgers Freeway. One way streets in downtown Dallas make driving directions complicated. Better to take DART (either Red line or Blue line) and get off at the West End station. From there, turn left on Lamar Street and walk for about a quarter mile.
