House of Blues Cleveland Wedding
Unique, fun reception spot! We loved absolutely everything about the House of Blues, from the responsive and accommodating staff to the colorful, unique décor. We wanted a venue that was a little different, and had our wedding for 180 people in the main music hall – a perfect spot because they do the lighting (no need for expensive up-lighting!) and the sound system makes the music and dancing like you're at a concert. The food/drink is great (coconut shrimp app is a must-try, and they can do signature drinks) and they have a lot of different options to choose from, and the décor is already set so you really don't need to decorate. They have lots of other really cool spaces for smaller groups 50-100 as well. It's also right downtown on East 4th, so lots of options for nearby hotels (we had guests stay at The Arcade across the street) and after-parties. Everyone was complimenting us on how awesome the space was. And, summer is actually their OFF-season – so renting the space was cheaper than usual! Also, don't hesitate to ask if you want something – for instance, they ordered pomegranate juice for my signature cocktail even though they don't regularly have it at the bar.
One thing to note – the only chairs they have for the larger main music hall space are metal black folding chairs. We didn't like the look of those for a wedding, so we had to rent chairs. A lot of the photos show chiavari chairs but just know those are going to cost extra from a third-party.
