Once lovingly deemed “the strangest neighborhood east of the Pecos” by Texas Monthly, Montrose is the place where anyone and everyone can be themselves – artsy, eclectic, and little bit edgy. It has a vibe of funky and fun, open late, and always up for anything.
2900 West Dallas
PERFECT FOR: Performers, artists, thrift store junkies, late nighters, and individualists of all kinds!
PERKS & QUIRKS: A ton of thrift stores, unique galleries and studios (like the Art Car Museum and Menil Collection), a hopping nightlife, and known for being Houston’s most LGBT-friendly neighborhood.
FUN FACT: Montrose is Howard Hughes’ old stomping grounds, and is also where Clark Gable studied acting – in case, my dear, you give a damn.
