In addition to one-of-a-kinds, national retailers such as Sambuca Cafe, Flying Saucer Draught Emporium and Morton’s Steakhouse are also a perfect fit and tremendously successful. Downtown is also a draw for heavy hitters House of Blues, Forever XXI and Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar.
Although you will find retail throughout downtown, the major activity centers are located in the Market Square Park/Historic District, a quirky mix of dining and nightlife establishments; Main Street Square, home to GreenStreet (formerly named Houston Pavilions); and The Shops at Houston Center, located one block away from Discovery Green Park.
