With a constant flow of music, food and drinks, there’s always a lot going on at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. The key is to find your own flavor and stick with it.
Rockstar Karaoke goes off on the last Friday of every month, a chance for anyone and everyone to show their stuff onstage inside the HOB restaurant and bar. It’ll happen again this Friday, August 25, so be ready to rock. And come hungry, because this event has its own special menu.
You can’t go wrong with the spicy, crispy Drunken Chicken Wings with stout molasses barbecue sauce and sweet chutney; or try the kicked-up Kentucky Hot Brown sandwich with layers of smoked turkey, roasted tomatoes and Cajun cheese sauce on thick-cut toast. But the frontman of this band is the Southern Fish and Chips, one of the biggest and boldest versions of this familiar dish you’ll find on the Strip.
Tender, flaky, meaty catfish portions are coated in a zesty seasoning blend that fries up so perfectly, you’ll wonder how you’ve been eating it any other way. Served with Zapp’s Cajun Crawtators potato chips, grilled lemon, crunchy peas and crisp, cool coleslaw, this plate merges an Old English tradition with New Orleans style in an unforgettable way. Hurry up and finish that last bite—it’s your turn on the mic. House of Blues Restaurant & Bar at Mandalay Bay, 702-632-7600; daily 7 a.m.-midnight.
