The Houston 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 Sundance Cinemas, the Bayou Music Center and a variety of restaurants, clubs and the family-favorite Landry’s Downtown Aquarium, which is just a short walk away from the major theaters.
