Getting Around East Downtown

Around East Downtown

There is a great mixture of places to live if you're considering East Downtown. With so much of the area being built up, there are some great luxury apartment builds underway. These three- to four-story apartment complexes are new and come with many great features like swimming pools and gyms. That said, there are also single-family options, though many are townhomes that have been recently constructed in the area. These modern structures are great starter homes, but don't offer much in the way of land or a backyard.

If you like quick bites and bar food, then East Downtown is perfect for you. The area doesn't have many full-fledged eateries, but that is changing as new business and residents move in. The area is home to Old Chinatown, and, while a new, modern Chinatown has been established, the remnants of the original are still present in EaDo. The remnants include some delicious Chinese eats and grocery stores. There are also some hip coffee and pastry places opening up in the abandoned warehouses of EaDo. These cool joints offer plenty of caffeine and all the cakes and cookies you can handle. Due to Dynamo stadium and Minute Maid Park, there are plenty of sports bars in the neighborhood, so if you like a burger and fries, you'll always have options.

In EaDo, you're likely to meet a diverse group of Houstonians roaming the downtown area. The area is highly walkable, and its proximity to some of the biggest sporting arenas and popular bars means you will find people out and about. Around the apartment and townhome communities, expect to see people out jogging or walking to their favorite neighborhood hot spot. There are also a good amount of fitness studios opening up in EaDo, so yogis and Pilates practitioners feel right at home here. The Metro bus and rail also run close to EaDo, so you will often see people hop on and off as they go through their day in Houston.

Friday night in EaDo is always a party! The popular music venue, Warehouse Live, puts on a great selection of music and comedy shows throughout the year. Across the street you'll find some established bars, including ones that offers free Nintendo video games and comic books to entertain you while you drink. Trivia is a common, popular event at many of these establishments, so you can test your knowledge on a night out with friends. There are usually games going on at BBVA Compass Stadium, homes of the Dynamo soccer team, or across the street at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros baseball team.

On Sundays you may find yourself walking into downtown to hit up some of the shopping and brunch spots closer to the heart of the city. You might also enjoy a Sunday brunch at one of the pop-up places that opened in the past few years. If you're looking for green space, you can walk to the nearby Discovery Green park, which always has fun events, most of which are free to the local community.
