Just in time for their 25th Anniversary, HOUSE OF BLUES opens a new flagship venue in the Anaheim GardenWalk! Their new 44,000 square foot facility is twice the size of its former location in Downtown Disney. The event kicked off with them installing a four-ton iconic steel water tower with a 10-story crane, and it was celebratory. Their new location will feature four unique entertainment spaces with a stage in each room for live music! The guided tour included the Main Concert Hall which holds 2,200 concert goers, The Parish with a 400 capacity, the Restaurant & Bar, and the Foundation Room with VIP Club. Check out the renderings below. It is scheduled to open at the end of this month, and it is going to be amazing!
“With House of Blues Entertainment celebrating its milestone 25-year anniversary, the new House of Blues Anaheim will be the flagship venue for our storied group of music halls,” said Ron Bension, president of House of Blues Entertainment. “This new venue marks the debut of what we believe will be the most beautiful music hall and dining experience in the country,” Bension said.
The most versatile space is in The Parish which will provide an intimate setting for private parties and corporate parties.
Home to one of the largest American Folk and Outsider Art collections in the world, HOUSE OF BLUES will feature artifacts, original sculptures and legendary American Folk Art pieces. They have also commissioned two local Southern California artists, Audrey Kawasaki and Johnny Rodriguez, to paint two large-format murals. You can learn more about the artists below.
After the hard hat tour, we enjoyed a tasting from their new Southern-inspired menu like Voodoo Shrimp, Nashville Hot Fried Chicken Salad, Fried Chicken Sliders, St. Louis Ribs, and Bourbon Bread Pudding - Yummy! HOUSE OF BLUES Anaheim will also feature a selection of signature cocktails and local craft beer.
The new House of Blues Anaheim will open with Social Distortion performing on February 28, 2017. It is already sold out! For more information please visit their website at http://houseofblues.com/anaheim.
