Why Midtown?

You may be looking to mix it up a bit and switch HTX neighborhoods, or perhaps you aren’t even from Houston at all, and you’re sitting here wondering, “What’s so great about Midtown? Why do I keep hearing about it? Why am I talking to myself and this random blog post is quoting it verbatim?” 

Well, let us tell you a little something: Midtown whispers to those who belong, no matter how far they may be. Every time you sit with friends at an okay-joint, and speak up about a great new gastropub around the corner, that’s the chic foodie in you. Every cocktail you snap for the Gram with a glitter gif, that’s the social butterfly in you. Every time you and the bestie take turn snapping pics, that’s the good friend in you.

This neighborhood is for those that never want to be too far away from a good afternoon that turns into a great night.

But in all seriousness, this neighborhood isn’t just one big club.  It’s got so much more to offer. Midtown is aptly named, placing you in the center– ahem, sorry, middle– of it all.  With plenty of BCycle and METROrail stations throughout, it’s a walkable community with a trendy vibe.

What to do??

BRUNCH

Where do we begin? With brunch, obviously!! One of our locators, Jessica, swears by Weights + Measures for their weekend brunch menu, which includes delicious plates such as Pan Seared Salmon Fillet, Baked Brioche French Toast, and Morning Cracked Egg Pizza.  No brunch would be complete without a nice drink, so add a classic mimosa or try their “Apple a Day”!

 

MIDTOWN PARK
