Technically, it's two blocks. But I have fond feelings for the stretch of Main Street between Berry and Alabama. Aka Mid-Main, the stretch is a bustling little section of Midtown that is brimming with character and charm. Here's why:
Friendly people, reasonable drinks, and a good vibe make this music venue a favorite.
For dining that's a bit more upscale than Tacos A Go-Go, head to this nearby spot for its tasty Latin American fare.
There's more than just music at this record shop. You can find some great local artwork and posters.
Really cheap but tasty Mexican food. It's perfect for a quick, satisfying meal, especially late at night after a show at Continental Club.
Quirky Midtown restaurant with homemade bar food and frequent drink specials. The fried string beans are a must. Better make that two.
Coffee bar by day, wine bar by night. Dig the bohemian vibe, too.
Fun, quirky boutique on one of Houston's best blocks. It's a bit pricey, but it's a great place to bring visitors for unique souvenirs.
