House of Blues

The original renovation of the historic B. Rosenberg & Sons Building resulted in the construction of a 24,000-square foot restaurant and music club, which is now the flagship facility for the House of Blues. This project included the restoration of the exterior, complete renovation of the interior, and construction of an addition and courtyard. The design concept was to create a nightclub evocative of a Delta Region rhythm and blues roadhouse.

Subsequently, the House of Blues selected Manning Architects to oversee the renovation of the adjacent Werlein Building. This created a larger retail space, banquet and kitchen facilities, and a private club known as the House of Blues Foundation.
