Medical Center
“If you want to for a run, bike, play some tennis or practice your swing at the driving range. Pro TIP: you can rent the city bicycles for a very cheap amount (30 min). ”

Café

“Located at Oxford and White Oak Dr. This place could also be listed under restaurants because the food is so good, but is primarily a bar. It has a low key vibe if the idea of a loud, busy bar isn’t what you are looking for.”

New American Restaurant

“Known for its brunch, amazing drinks and cocktails, and otherwise great atmosphere.”

Coffee Shop

“What better name for a Houston coffee shop than Boomtown? This eclectic little café on 19th Street in the Heights sports a gushing oil derrick on its signage—homage to the black stuff that helped build Houston and a fitting tie to the other black stuff served inside. Boomtown Coffee offers its own small-batch artisan roasts, sourcing quality beans from around the world and, if guests get hungry, they can find food trucks frequently parked out front. Looking for something closer? They also have a location in downtown, at 300 Main Street.”

Coffee Shop
$
“Heights hipsters flock to the shopping-center-set Antidote Coffee House for its caffeine-laden offerings and laid-back, at-home vibe. The loft-like interior-with its rubbed concrete floors, exposed brick walls and open vent-work-is filled with an array of eclectic furniture and artwork produced by local artisans. There's free wi-fi and plenty of plug-ins, but you know what they say about all work and no play-head there for happy hour Monday through Friday (4 to 7 p.m.) and enjoy $1 double espresso.”

“Originating out of Austin, Torchy's has grown with several locations around Houston. This location offers a full bar (try a peg-leg). They offer a rotating Taco of the Month, a "secret menu", and a variety of everyday favorites (trashy trailer park and baja shrimp are my favorite).”

Vegetarian / Vegan Restaurant
$$
“Organic, gluten free, and decent pricing. My favorite is the goat cheese salad. All their salads are large and can be shared. They have a wood burning oven for their pizza as well. Try the margarita with fresh basil/fresh mozzarella. You won’t be disappointed.”

Cafe
“Texas flair and Cajun fare collide at this beloved Houston chain. Open 24/7, it’s always an excellent option for po’ boys, a steaming bowl of gumbo, or enough fried seafood to satisfy any Gulf cravings.”

Music Venue

“Great live music! Fitzgerald's is one of the oldest and widely recognized live music venues in the Greater Houston area. The club has been at the top of the live music scene in Houston since it opened in 1977.”

Tiki Bar
$$
“Don’t be fooled by this cocktail bar’s unassuming exterior; inside you’ll find a tropical paradise that rocks some serious tiki spirit. At pa’u hana (that’s what they call happy hour in Hawaii), sip a lineup of six of the bar’s most popular tiki drinks for 6 bucks a pop. And on “Mai Tai Tuesday,” three different versions of Mai Tai are offered for $6; while Wednesday offers pa’u hana all night long. Tuesday through Friday 4pm to 7pm. ”
