What Its Known For
Known as one of the liveliest entertainment hubs in Houston, Midtown is a compact neighborhood that sits just Southwest of Downtown. Being so centrally located from Downtown offices, the Med Center, the METRORail, and the HCC Campus, this area is popular with students and the young professional crowd looking to live in the heart of the city.
TO DO IN MIDTOWN
If you type “best restaurants in Houston” into the Google search bar, The Breakfast Klub is always a list-topper — and for good reason. The Zagat-rated brunch staple has a line wrapping around the building on any given morning (yes, even weekdays), so if you’re curious about what some of the “best breakfast food in the nation” tastes like, we highly recommend setting an early alarm to beat the crowd.
While there are plenty of things to see and do in the daytime, Midtown truly comes alive when the sun goes down. Popular nightlife spots like Wonder Bar, Electric Feelgood, and Little Woodrow’s are concentrated on Bagby and Brazos Streets for the easiest bar-hopping in the city. If you’re more into patio situations, Axelrad Beer Garden serves up local drafts and seasonal cocktails with onsite food trucks, live music, art markets, movie screenings, open mics, and more.
Living in Midtown is all about convenience — not only are you centrally located from tons of entertainment options, but you’ve also got essentials like Randalls, Whole Foods, multiple drug stores, Chipotle, two Starbucks locations, and many more local businesses within minutes.
