Nestled in a time-honored section of Downtown, you'll find the Historic Market Square neighborhood, home of Houston's original town center! With its 1800's-era architecture, tree-lined streets, eclectic mix of sidewalk cafes, pubs and nighttime hotspots, plus amazing residential properties, Historic Market Square fuses culture and commerce.
History buffs may remember this part of town as the site of Houston's original City Hall (until it moved to its current location in 1939), but today, Historic Market Square has grown into a robust urban neighborhood featuring a blend of old world charms and a modern-day lifestyle. In fact, taking a casual stroll on any given day will likely result in you sharing a carafe of wine with some of the area's neighborhood residents at La Carafe – one of the city's oldest bars in the city's oldest commercial building and who's celebrity roster includes artists and musicians such as Liberace and James Baldwin – to grabbing a coveted spot on the lawn at nearby Market Square Park, where friends and families have already begun gathering for a night of Blanket Bingo or an outdoor movie.
