“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
Originally called Southside, this area between downtown and the Museum District east of Montrose retains some of its original history and buildings, plus plenty of trees and green space. Beyond dicey areas underscored on its east and southeast boundaries is the trendy heart of Midtown, packed with hip restaurants, new multi-use living developments and over 20 art venues for gallery-hopping. Here you'll find live local music and clubs, including gay country dance-bar institution the BRB (Brazos River Bottom). For morning-after chicken and waffles, head to neighborhood soul food staple The Breakfast Klub.
