Planning Your Visit

Sixty-six foot ceilings, scarlet carpet, teakwood and travertine marble greet visitors to Jones Hall, the home of the Houston Symphony. Located at 615 Louisiana Street in the heart of Houston’s downtown Theater District, our theater has a uniquely-designed movable ceiling that enables the auditorium to literally shrink or expand from 2,167 to 2,912 seats.

Jones Hall opens one hour before your performance. Come early and enjoy an elegant meal at the in-lobby Encore Café. A fine wine bar, cappuccino and gourmet desserts are also available for your enjoyment both pre-concert and at intermission. Below are frequently asked questions about attending a Houston Symphony concert.

May I tweet or use Snapchat during a performance?
Though we encourage the use of social media before or after a performance, patrons may not use their phones during a performance.

What should I wear when attending a Houston Symphony performance?
We want your concert experience to be as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. You will see patrons in formal attire, business casual and everything in between.
