Avenida Houston is the newest place to sip, stroll and savor in Downtown Houston. The name “Avenida” comes from Avenida de las Americas, the boulevard that fronts the George R. Brown Convention Center and runs from Minute Maid Park to the Hilton Americas-Houston hotel.

The Avenida Houston District includes the George R. Brown (GRB), Discovery Green park, Hilton Americas-Houston and the new Marriott Marquis. The area includes three main parking garages: Avenida North, South and Central.

Along Avenida de las Americas (ADLA), five restaurants have been built to provide new dining options to Houstonians, convention-goers and other visitors. With events, festivals and other programs taking place along the Avenida Plaza, in Discovery Green and within the hotels and convention center, there is always something going on.
