THE THEATER DISTRICT is an impressive cultural and entertainment center. The district features nine renowned performing arts organizations, and many smaller ones, in four venues – Jones Hall, Wortham Theater Center, Alley Theatre and Hobby Center for the Performing Arts.

You’ll also find Bayou Place which includes the Sundance Cinema, Bayou Music Center and a variety of restaurants and clubs and family-favorite Landry’s Downtown Aquarium which is just a short walk away from the major theaters.
