When you think “House of Blues” you probably think Chicago. Visions of Jake and Elwood Blues might pop into your head – going on a “mission from God” to help save an orphanage, escaping all manner of crazy situations, driving through a mall to escape the police, and generally causing mayhem for all the right reasons. Dan Aykroyd (aka Elwood) did indeed help found the House of Blues, along with John Belushi’s (aka Jake’s) brother Jim Belushi, but the first location was actually in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A chain was born, and Boston’s House of Blues opened for concerts, food, nightlife and “Gospel Brunch” on Sundays – complete with gospel music, waffles, and waving napkins!
If you’ve got the winter blues, let the Boston House of Blues give you something to look forward to with their epic entertainment lineup. We’ll help you find parking at the House of Blues so all you have to do is show up and enjoy true greatness.

Out and About and Back Again
No matter what show you see at the House of Blues, why not make a full day of it so you can really get a taste of Boston? Fenway Park is right across the street – snap some selfies at the home of the legendary Boston Red Sox. If you read our blog on parking for Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, you’ll know that walking the Freedom Trail is a great way to see historic sites like Bunker Hill, Paul Revere’s house and Faneuil Hall. You can make your way there by catching the T (Boston’s subway) very close to Fenway Park, then hopping on a bus, so there’s no need to drive all over looking for parking. Simply find parking at the House of Blues on your handy dandy ParkMobile app and the town is your oyster (or maybe your Boston cream pie).
