Midtown Houston Neighborhood Guide
Midtown is in the middle of reinventing itself into a trendy district, and with redevelopment underway, it is on the right track in reaching that goal.
The district is between two important Houston districts, the Central Business District and the Medical Center. Midtown sits along three major freeways, Gulf, South and Southwest, making the district very accessible to and from other Inner Loop neighborhoods like Montrose, EaDo, and the Museum District.
Midtown was one of Houston’s most popular residential districts in the 1940s, due to the Humble Oil and Refining Company. This initial boom, however, led to more commercial establishments in the area, which drove away some residents looking for quieter neighborhoods.
Vietnamese immigrants and Vietnamese Americans revitalized Midtown, establishing a Little Saigon on a number of streets in the district.
In the 1980s through the 90s, Midtown experienced a slump because of the oil glut. The district’s population fell dramatically during this period.
Despite the neighborhood’s ups and downs, the future looks bright for Midtown. The city of Houston’s establishment of the Midtown Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) and Midtown Management District has led to the district’s steady growth.
Recent development has led to Midtown’s resurgence. More commercial establishments, including bars, retail stores, lounges, and art galleries, have attracted more people to the district. More demand led to new construction apartment complexes, mid-rise condos, and townhomes.
Midtown Houston has 77002, 77004, and 77006 Harris County zip codes.
Nearby zip codes include: 77003, 77006, 77011, 77010, 77019, and 77054. (View Houston zip code map)

Fun Things To Do In And Around Midtown
The neighborhood’s mixed-use urban planning provides its residents with great options right by their doorsteps. It has a lively street scene with a variety of dining, shopping, and nightlife options.
True to its new “trendy” reputation, Midtown houses a number of bars and lounges, including a dog-friendly bar called Saint Dane’s Bar and Grille. Double Cross Lounge is quite popular for serving craft beers and cocktails. The Nouveau Antique Art Bar, on the other hand, serves cocktails alongside eclectic art choices.
Owing to its history as Little Saigon, Midtown is also home to several banh mi and pho restaurants like Kim Tai and Thien An Sandwiches.
Retail options are equally eclectic. Though there is a curious lack of big box retail stores in Midtown, the district does offer a large variety of smaller stores.
There’s Adkins Architectural Antiques, a store that sells vintage home decor and also does restorations. The Tinderbox Craft Collective sells art and craft items from local artists and provides craft workshops for interested patrons.
Midtown also has a number of parks within and around the district. Elizabeth Baldwin Park, a 4.88-acre area between Crawford and Chenevert streets, has a Vietnamese Heritage Plaza.
Peggy’s Point Plaza Park is also located in the district, while Discovery Green in Downtown Houston is just minutes away from Midtown.
