East Downtown “EaDo”
What Its Known For
You know how the Heights kind of reminds you of Urban Outfitters? EaDo will make you feel like that really cool boutique that you’re very in-the-know friend told you about (probably the same girl who told you about NastyGalVintage). Houston’s most up-and-coming spot for townhomes and warehouse offices, this neighborhood has an industrial vibe that you get to make your own. They’re tearing down most of what was once there because the trend gods decided this was the next hot spot, giving Houston free creative range to make this neighborhood something to talk about. Startups from all across H-Town are starting to move into the various creative spaces converted from old warehouses, pumping a flow of fresh ideas and businesses into the mix.
If you’re looking for the cutest coffee shop you ever did see, be sure to check out Tout Suite. You’ll find a sea of people working from “home” and someone who knows way more about coffee than you behind the counter, this place is legit. Perfectly capturing the neighborhood, this open concept cafe is full of fresh minds quietly creating a buzz of ideas and collaboration. Then you can walk a few blocks over to a louder buzz over to Minute Maid Park and BBVA to watch your Houston teams do the sports things, yeah! There are plenty of dive bars for post-game festivities so the party doesn’t have to end at the final score! The apartments in this neighborhood have tons of character, one of them is over 100 years old and has been renovated into beautiful lofts with square footage like you wouldn’t believe. New developers are starting the trend of building in this area giving the scene a juxtaposition of hardwood floors from the 1800’s that creak with character and shiny brand new apartments with hand-scraped hardwood floors.
