House of Blues Boston

The House of Blues Boston was essentially built as a replacement for the first-ever House of Blues concert hall and restaurant. That original establishment was found at Harvard Square in nearby Cambridge, but closed in 2003. The Cambridge location is also where the House of Blues chain originated. Getting back to the current Boston-area installment, it can be found at 15 Lansdowne Street in Boston proper. That puts it right across the street from Fenway Park. Also found in the area are other sports bars and nightclubs, so this is a popular part of town in which to congregate.

House of Blues Boston Parking

House of Blues Boston parking can sometimes be hard to find. This is especially true if you are driving over to see a show on the same night as a Red Sox game. Other area attractions, such as Symphony Hall, also create large crowds, and it doesn’t help that most of the on-street parking is "Residents Only." As a result, many people who are headed to the House of Blues to see a show rely on public transportation and their own two feet for getting around. The Fenway area has many Green Line T stations and is easily walkable. For those who insist on driving to the House of Blues Boston, there are parking garages in the area. An example is the Pilgrim Parking garage, which can be found at 49 Lansdowne Street. On the whole, the rates are reasonable for the parking garages that can be found in the Fenway area. As you might expect, the closer the garage is to the House of Blues and Fenway Park, the more expensive the rates are likely to be.
