East Downtown, a.k.a “EaDo”, covers the area just outside of Downtown on the other side of 59 and east of I-45 before you hit the greater East End. At first glance, this neighborhood looks like your typical industrial warehouse district — but locals know all it takes is a little exploring to find yourself in some of the hippest, most-recommended spots in town! Startups and businesses from all across H-Town are moving into the spaces converted from historic buildings, pumping a flow of fresh ideas into the mix.


If your resident “cool friend” is recommending a new restaurant, it’s more than likely you’ll be routing to EaDo to try it out. Nancy’s Hustle is a go-to spot for intimate vibes, good wine, and sharing small plates family-style, and you can’t beat Tiny Champions’ happy hour deals on inventive cocktails, apps, and pizza. Part of the work from “home” crowd? Tout Suite and Brass Tacks are nearby, brew delicious coffee, and (most importantly) have plenty of outlets.

Being walking distance from both Minute Maid Park and the BBVA Stadium, sports fans often go straight from rooting for the home teams to post-game gatherings on the lively St. Emanuel Street. Along this strip, nightlife spots range from rooftop situations and chill breweries to patio bars like Truck Yard where you can shell out $10 for the ultimate combo — your drink of choice and a spin on the Ferris Wheel!

Much like the funky and eclectic Montrose neighborhood, EaDo’s thriving creative community is visible through tons of murals and public art decorating the walls of businesses. For the full experience and photo ops galore, be sure to check back regularly to see what’s on view at the designated Grafitti Park.


EaDo real estate options consist of industrial loft-style condos with historic character, roomie-friendly townhomes, and apartment complex living with onsite amenities.
