What Its Known For

Famous for Greenway Plaza & Edwards Cinema.
Cute red telephone booths. Seriously, go check them out.
The area is super central! Close to many eateries & entertainment hot spots.


Only 10 minutes from Downtown, nestled between Montrose and Galleria/Uptown, the Upper Kirby/Greenway area is a central home base for all types of commutes around the Houston area. Located right above Hwy 59, the Greenway Plaza area is a mixed-use development with a movie theater, tons of different restaurants, and plenty of coffee shops to WFH from. You also have a neighborhood Costco for those days when you think to yourself, “I really love this protein bar and I’m going to go buy 200 of them”. Or if you just want the best hot dog of your life from the cafe at the end (pro tip).

Being so central, you’re an affordable Lyft ride away from pretty much all of the entertainment hot spots around the city. Close to home, we love happy hour on the Kirby Ice House patio, fajitas and margs at El Tiempo, and treating ourselves to incredible sushi at Kata Robata. This neighborhood also has the perfect place to take your friend that’s obsessed with Lord of the Rings (niche, but you know everyone has at least one) — the themed Hobbit Cafe transports you straight to the shire for sandwiches.


This neighborhood has range — whether you’re looking for something affordable with no frills or are wanting to splurge on a luxe living space, you can find it in the Upper Kirby / Greenway area.
