The House of Blues in Downtown Disney Orlando is perhaps one of the more grown up dining venues at this destination. Sure children are very welcome here but with the House of Blues combination of restaurant, bar and music it is a great place to visit if you are looking for something at little different in Disney World.

The Crossroads House of Blues is certainly one of the most interestingly themed restaurants in Downtown Disney. Yes it is a restaurant but it’s foundation is as a place to hear great music. The next door Music Hall venue hosts live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays. It also plays host to the famous House of Blues Gospel Sunday Brunch every week. There is a large and lively outdoor bar which is a great place to relax and have a drink with friends.

Don’t let the broken down looking exterior fool you. Of course this is all part of the effect that the House of Blues wants to create. Think of that off the beaten track restaurant that all the locals know and love – this is the back story of the House of Blues restaurant. And the music is not just the Blues. The music spirit of the restaurant is Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Jazz and good ole Rock & Roll.

The inside is incredibly vibrant and colorful. Take some time to look around and really explore the colorful art. Even the ceiling is beautifully decorated. The wooden tables and booths are comfortable and pretty well spread out. There is a very small stage where live music is sometimes played. One of the main attractions is the huge B.B Blues Bar. Definitely a place to while away the hours if you have some time.

The Crossroads at House of Blues restaurant menu is designed by celebrity chef Aaron Sanchez. The food is described as a mixture between American and International dishes.
