What Its Known For

Usually referred to as oldest neighborhood in Houston.
Montrose is well-known for its artsy brunch spots, overall good eats, as well as Buffalo Bayou.
Also famous for its signature eclectic vibe!


When thinking of the Montrose neighborhood, you can boil it down to these words: eclectic, funky, and long-standing. Established in 1911, envision century-old architecture mixed with ultra-modern townhouses, hidden hole-in-the-walls, awarded restaurants like Uchi, zany bars with impressive patios like Boheme, and world-class art museums like the Menil Collection all neighboring each other.

Montrose is dotted with numerous renovated mansions turned local businesses and restaurants, age-old trees, and some of the best food in Houston. From laid-back bars to full-on clubs, fine dining to casual, coffee shops to museums, patios to parks, it’s rather simple to find the perfect atmosphere here.

Also known for its vintage boutiques and thrift stores, Montrose is the ideal place to find a one-of-a-kind accessory or unique treasure considering the thriving thrift scene along the Westheimer curve. It’s so notable, in fact, that celebs like Dua Lipa and Olivia Rodrigo made a point to pay it a visit when touring! There are tons of shops within walking distance, making it easy to hop around from one place to the next — we recommend starting your vintage journey at Leopard Lounge and working your way around from there.



The properties within Montrose are just as and unique as the neighborhood itself, ranging from charming renovated complexes to sleek new high-rises. Being such a trendy part of town, you can expect pricing to be a bit higher than average — but being such a versatile location, those who live in the area tend to agree it’s well worth it.
