Houston's 5 Best Live-Music Venue Web Sites
4. Firehouse Saloon
Look and Feel: 4
Ease of Use: 7
Mobile Friendliness: 6
The overall design for Firehouse is dated, but adequate compared to other Houston club Web sites. The content is a bit hard to read, particularly on a smartphone screen, but pretty much everything you need for a venue is there. The front page and the calendar are basically identical making them a bit redundant, but fine.
On the plus side, everything is easy to find. The address, contact information and directions are right there in the left column on every page. Points taken off for only one news update from three years ago. Gotta update those news feeds.
Recommendations: Similar to Warehouse, consider going with white background and dark text. Update the design a bit and widen the overall layout to fill more of the screen. Update the news or ditch it. The front-page calendar is redundant -- just highlight special events on the entry page.
