Where to Live
Greater Third Ward has always been a primarily residential community with small local businesses throughout the neighborhood. Many original traditional “shotgun” houses still exist and many are on the market waiting for preservation from history-minded homeowners. Greater Third Ward also has seen recent developments of condominiums and townhomes with post-modern architectural design, some of which can be found on Hadley Street and St. Charles Street.
Where to Eat
The neighborhood’s rich heritage is reflected in its culinary scene. There are many independently owned restaurants that serve everything from Texas-style BBQ to traditional soul food to Louisiana Cajun cooking. However, the neighborhood also has a diverse range of new restaurants, from Vietnamese sandwich shops to vegetarian cafes.
What You'll See
Original “shotgun” bungalows lined up along Anita Street, whilst contemporary condominiums with post-modern designs can be seen on Francis Street. You can see the neighborhood’s cultural heritage, its history and its evolution just by driving around. While Greater Third Ward has a great views of nearby downtown, abandoned houses and buildings can be seen in the industrial parts of the area. This is a reminder of the economic times the neighborhood has faced, but also hints at its potential for revitalization.
Friday Night Fun
Third Ward can be a lively place for a relatively small neighborhood. There is a wide variety of bars, lounges and late night restaurants on Calhoun Road. You can find local dive bars and newer hip establishments on Ennis Street. In fact, the nightlife scene in the Greater Third Ward reflects the neighborhood’s rapidly changing cultural dynamics.
The Perfect Sunday
The neighborhood’s historically large cultural population means you will see families dressed in their Sunday best going to Holman Street Baptist Church or Trinity United Methodist Church. You can also find locals jogging or walking their dogs at Emancipation Park on Dowling Street. Nearby, the large, beautifully designed Discovery Green hosts events and free live shows on weekends, making it one of Houston’s most popular parks.
