So many words describe Montrose: Fun, eccentric, offbeat. Lately you could add congested to that list, as loft, condo and apartment buildings have been going up in this neighborhood at a record pace. It's no wonder everyone wants to live here though. The residents of Montrose take pride in their unconventional atmosphere, in a neighborhood where the unexpected is a way of life. Retreating to a quiet and spacious, light-filled loft has its draw, but it’s good to know there is always some interesting action going on in the streets below.

The arts are the heartbeat of this innovative neighborhood. For a quick submersion, try out Boo Town, where puppet shows, adult story time, and other productions keep locals coming back for more. Love to watch those who have nimble feet, and have perfected their talent for creative movement? The Dominic Walsh Dance Center is a contemporary ballet company that honors other cultures and artists, and celebrates the joy of dance in their performances. An active dance experience is available at Hope Stone, where ongoing classes, performances, and community collaboration, enhance the local appreciation for dance.
Head down to Revolution E and experience the latest in cycling adventures. Electric bikes allow riders to cover more territory, and many of the wonders, not only Montrose, but, also in outlying areas of Houston, can be enjoyed in an up close and personal way. Tours and rentals are available, but riders may enjoy the adventure, and decide to purchase one for commutes to work and weekend fun.
Montrose residents love their java jolt. The Agora is a mix of European tradition and Texas ‘cool’ where customers enjoy a cup while hanging with friends, kicking on to the Internet to take care of business, or sitting outdoors on the recently remodeled patio. There is a reason the Agora has won several awards by the Houston Press. Feel like curling up on a vintage sofa and having a luscious home-made pastry, along with your cup? The Black Hole Cafe is the place where home comfort meets great service and good food. For a funky food adventure that the whole family will love, try out Niko Niko, once featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Enjoy the huge assortment of gyros and sandwiches, and other Greek specialties, and don’t forget their desserts!
