The Heights neighborhood covers the area just northwest of Downtown Houston. With 100-year-old Victorian-style houses lining tree-lined streets, mom-and-pop retail, and some of the best restaurants in the city, this area is a popular place to call home for longtime Houston residents and young professional newcomers alike.

We can’t talk about the Heights without mentioning its main stretch, 19th Street. We recommend grabbing a small-batch house-roasted brew from Boomtown Coffee, then browsing the record stores, boutiques, and specialty shops nearby. While it’s considered to be much more laid-back than Houston’s nightlife hub, Midtown, the Heights has no shortage of cocktail spots, breweries, and chill patio situations (most of which are super dog-friendly!) — McIntyres, Heights Bier Garten, and Eight Row Flint are some of our favorites.

The Heights has a solid blend of older properties with character and brand-new luxury apartments for renters to choose from. Being so close to Downtown, there’s the potential to have some of the best skyline views in the city right outside your window!
