Houston Uptown and Galleria

Not the same as Dallas

Houston is an excellent city with unique neighborhoods. In this blog, we will talk about Houston’s Uptown neighborhood. If you love to shop, Uptown is where you want to be; this is the shopping Mecca of the Houston area, with Houston’s famous Galleria as the crown jewel. 

The Uptown neighborhood has easy access to all of Houston, just north of Interstate 69 and the 610-loop intersection.

Where there is great shopping, there are always great restaurants as well. The Uptown neighborhood offers many options for both pastimes. Let’s start with shopping. The Houston Galleria is well known for its high-end stores like Neiman Marcus, Louis Vuitton, Coach, and Michael Kors, to name a few. Shopping at the Houston Galleria is on par with New York’s fifth avenue or Los Angeles Rodeo Drive. All that fabulous shopping can work up an appetite, so take advantage of some of the nicest eating establishments in the Houston area.

For a taste of something truly designed for the Houstonian, check out White Oak Kitchen & Drinks. This unique eatery is best known for its locally curated collection of ingredients to give you that truly unique Houston taste and experience. Whether you want to start the day of shopping with breakfast or end your day of spending with drinks and dinner, this restaurant has what you need.

Are you looking for a simpler fare? Then look across the street from the Galleria and grab a table at MOXIE. This restaurant has something to please any palette.

Okay, what else can a person do in the Uptown neighborhood besides shop and eat? Why not try the Rooftop Cinema Club? This outdoor rooftop movie theater is a beautiful way to enjoy your favorite childhood movies. Make sure you go to the website and see what movies they are showing; you will be pleasantly surprised by what you find.

Another fun spot in Uptown is TFTI Houston’s original selfie museum experience inside Houston Galleria. Explore over 15+ curated rooms for fun photos — including their Infinity Mirror Room, LOVE room, Peach Room, DJ Confetti Room, and so much more.
