Houston’s Newest Events Venue : Blue Box Theater

Blue Box Theater is located in the heart of the EaDo Dsitrict at the intersection of Leland and St. Emanuel. It’s directly across the street from Houston’s Food Truck Park. You can’t miss its electric blue exterior when passing by!

In this area of town there are truly no venues of its kind unless you drive up a couple blocks to the University of Houston or TSU. There are other venues roughly 5 minutes away: George R. Brown, BBVA, Toyota Center etc, but even then you may not find anything like Blue Box.

When I walked in I automatically thought of a “Supper Club” or “Juke Joint” vibe with the big band playing on the stage and flapper dancers… or a sultry jazz singer pouring her heart out to a packed room while guests sip on old fashions, French 75’s or Gin Rickey’s..now that’s my kind of party..

Blue Box Theater is a great venue for live performances, Theater, Musicals, Company parties, Family or Class reunions, Fashion shows, Fundraisers etc.. you name it and they’ve got you covered. My favorite space in the venue is the 2nd Floor VIP Lounge that overlooks the entire hall. It’s a great area to host celebrities or dignitaries. There are actually 3 spaces that could be used as separate areas up there, they were just a little too dark to capture.


I had the pleasure of speaking with the Owner & CEO Deidre Sam, about her vision for the venue. She candidly shared that her space is “flexible” and she truly enjoys sharing the vision of her clients to ensure that she and her team work to make it happen.
