Montrose

Montrose is a hip, walkable neighborhood with a bustling restaurant scene that ranges from white tablecloth to laid-back and eclectic boutiques and antique shopping. River Oaks is known for all things luxury: stately mansions, scenic boulevards, high-end shopping and fine dining.

Westheimer

Restaurant Row: Head to One Fifth, a concept-changing restaurant housed in a former church and helmed by James Beard winning chef, Chris Shepherd, who is opening a nearby steakhouse, Georgia James, and UB Preserv. Make a reservation for sushi at Austin import Uchi, or high end Italian at Da Marco. Authentic Mexican food is on the menu at Hugo’s where locals enjoy happy hour on their pretty patio and line up for the amazing Sunday buffet. Traditional Chinese dishes with a peppery kick are served at Mala Sichuan and Indika offers innovative Indian cuisine. Craft Coffee, Cocktails and Beer: Barista pros serve up perfect cups at Blacksmith and Southside Espresso. Linger over your latte and laptop at Brasil and Agora. Talk business over breakfast at Common Bond or arrive early for their popular weekend brunch. Quality cocktails are shaken and stirred at Anvil while Hay Merchant has plenty of craft beers and Poison Girl has both – with pinball!

Antiques & Boutiques: Treasure hunters regularly visit The Guild Shop, Blue Bird Circle, and The Cottage Shop. Locally owned boutiques, Space and Biscuit, carry a unique selection – perfect for gift-giving or decorating your new home. Be sure to take a selfie in front of the colorful Biscuit Paint Wall!

Fairview

Morning to Night: For breakfast, try the green eggs special at Baby Barnaby’s or migas at La Mexicana. Browse for mid-century and modern at Reeves Antiques. Hop on a B-Cycle and take a ride through the neighborhood with a smoothie from Flow. Wind down with happy hour at Boheme. End your evening with dinner at cozy Roost, Riel for modern American fare, or Mexico City-inspired Cuchara. 

Montrose

Masterpieces and Music:  Gaze at the street art murals on your way to the Museum District. Pop in the Art League to view their latest exhibits or sign up for art classes. Stock up on paint, canvas, and paper at Texas Art Supply where artists have been picking up supplies since the 1950’s. Take in a show at the Anderson Fair, a laid back venue established in the 60’s featuring folk and acoustic acts in an intimate setting run by volunteer music lovers.

Daily Routine: Meet friends for big breakfasts at Snooze where you can practice your hula hoop skills while waiting in line! Reserve Sundays for Danton’s Gulf Coast Seafood Kitchen’s Blues Brunch with live, local music. Get fit at Define with their yoga and spinning classes. 

West Alabama  

Houston History: Montrose is home to several historic districts including nearby Audubon Place and Westmoreland. For a glimpse of the city’s architectural past, take a stroll and admire the Victorian-era homes with plenty of live oaks for shade. Notable residents include Florence Sterling, a leader in the women’s suffrage movement, and former President Lyndon Johnson, who lived with relatives while teaching debate at Sam Houston High School. Acadian Bakers has a history of baking cakes for Montrose families for over 36 years, including king cakes during Mardi Gras season.

Arts and Leisure: Art-loving philanthropists, Dominique and John de Menil founded the Menil Collection, full of antiquities and surrealist works with a new Drawing Institute opening soon. Browse the Menil Bookstore’s selection of coffee table books and unique gifts before happy hour at the Bistro Menil next door (Wednesday-Sunday 2-6:30 pm). Pack a picnic for people watching in Menil Park and meditation in Rothko Chapel.

Richmond

Hangouts: Join the drum jam or practice yoga at Mandell Park. Dogs dig the Ervan Chew Park while kids can cool off at the splash pad. Compete on the bocce and croquet courts at Brooklyn Athletic Club where you can also do brunch. Revelry on Richmond offers big screen tvs and brews for sports fans. Become a bbq regular at locally owned Drew’s and The Pit Room.
