Place:House of Blues, Blue


HOB is one of the best spots at Downtown Disney to relax with a cold one ' and we don't mean the restaurant or the music hall, though they're both fine places. But there's no cover charge involved for either the Front Porch, where you can usually find a local musician playing, or the Blues Kitchen, which opens up after the restaurant closes and features a surprisingly wide variety of roots musicians, both local and national. We love hanging out at the Blues Kitchen, but the Front Porch is a better bet, since its location allows for some prime people-watching.
