A outdoor venue popular in summer for its live music and eclectic local events. – The Scene
Jones Plaza is pretty, but it's functionally limited: The stage placed at the east end of the lot faces an open area peppered with trees and greenery, with virtually no place but the ground to sit. The plaza is rarely used during winter--as though Houston's worst winter experience could approach the unpleasantness of the sticky heatstroke you risk with a huge crowd and burning sun in the dead of summer. Still, the plaze remains Houston's best-known outdoor spot for weekday music and after-work socializers.
The plaza's typical visitor is dressed in work clothes, holding an overpriced plastic cup of Budweiser and listening to a familiar and quite possibly washed-up live band. The space is occasionally used for charity events, and Party on the Plaza, Country on the Plaza and even Tejano on the Plaza have had varying degrees of success with the same formula of music, food vendors and radio co-sponsorship.
