With a capacity of about 2,750, Arena Theatre is the redheaded stepchild of Houston music venues. Even with all the competition it has these days, the Arena manages to keep the lights on most nights out of the month. Its calendar is constantly crowded with music across a wide variety of styles, including R&B, blues, country, rap, Latin and rock, plus comedy, boxing and MMA fighting.

With a capacity of about 2,750, Arena Theatre is the redheaded stepchild of Houston music venues. The part of Houston that doesn't use the Southwest Freeway as their major commuter artery tends to forget it's even over there by Sharpstown Mall, but it's been there -- albeit not continually operating -- since 1965. (The office towers adjoining the theater were built in the early '80s.) But even with all the competition it has these days, the Arena manages to keep the lights on most... More »
